Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"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. In this fascinating and revealing memoir of revolutionary talent, pioneer, and creative savant Patterson recalls the trials and tribulations of climbing to the upper ranks of sports-entertainment - as a performer and, later, as a backstage creative force. Many in the WWE Universe know Pat Patterson as a ring legend, the prestigious first holder of WWE's Intercontinental Championship, a WWE Hall of Famer, and one of Vince McMahon's "stooges" during the Attitude Era. But Patterson is no stooge. He has long been one of Vince McMahon's trusted advisors. Still active in WWE today, Pat delivers his no-holds-barred story of going from unknown to WWE luminary." -- Provided by publisher
