News On Why Pat Patterson Came Out Publicly On Legends House Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.14.2014
Why did he choose that time to do it?
The reason that Pat Patterson revealed publicly that he was gay on the season finale of Legends House (on the WWE Network) was that the WWE wanted media attention. When WWE first filmed the show, they intended to sell it to a network like SyFy or E!. They felt that Patterson's news would get a lot of media attention, similar to how Darren Young's announcement did last year.
TMZ did pick up the story but it didn't get nearly as much media attention as some thought it would. It did trend at #1 worldwide on Twitter.
