"When Pat Patterson was 17 years old, he was asked to leave his home after telling his parents he was in love . . . with a man. Moving from Montreal to the United States in the 1960s, barely knowing a word of English, he was determined to succeed in the squared circle. Back when homophobia was widespread, Pat lived in the super-macho world of pro wrestling."--Publisher's description.

Sure, classy person released his memoir after dozen of other wrestlers.
However, modest & grounded person did on his own time & terms.
Wistful, than bloodthirsty in that he not obsessed with wrestling.
He finally got a singing career of sorts in Karaoke bars.
However, the time wasting pranks wrestlers did to each other were funny.
