Pat Patterson

Wrestling legend Pat Patterson came out on Thursday during the finale of WWE Network's reality show Legends' House.

"Sitting here tonight I'm gonna say something that I never want to say publicly. But being here with you guys for once in my life I'm going to be me now," Patterson said to a group of fellow WWE stars. "I survived all this, being gay."

Out and proud celebrities

Patterson continued: "I lived with that for 50-some years. I had a friend with me for 40 years and I lost him because he had a heart attack ... It's tough guys, It was tough."

"I gave my life to the business. I don't regret nothing," Patterson said, adding, "and for the rest of my life I want to be happy."

Patterson is the second WWE star to come out as gay. Last August, Darren Young told a TMZ cameraman he was gay in an airport.
