The wrestling world is paying tribute to Pat Patterson after news
broke that the Hall of Famer passed away aged 79.
Wrestling fandom is unlike anything else for a number of reasons. Even though it can feel like a niche interest at times, we are reminded relatively regularly that there are millions of people watching the same stuff as us around the world. Something that can draw 100,000 people to the same stadium is far from a niche interest.
One of the downsides of being a wrestling fan is it feels like we are forced to deal with loss way more often than we should. Today is another one of those days and one that will hit a lot of fans harder than most. It was revealed on Wednesday morning that WWE Hall of Famer Pat Patterson had passed away at the age of 79.
