The Rock Thanks Pat Patterson

The Rock took the time on Instagram this week to honor WWE legend Pat Patterson:

#TBT 2013 becoming #WWE Heavyweight Champion for the 8th time. First person to congratulate me backstage was WWE Hall of Famer and close family friend Pat Patterson – one of the greatest mentors I’ve ever had in the world of sports entertainment.

At 23yrs old I called Pat and told him I was training to get into the business. He said “What business?”. I said “the wrestling business”. He said with great clarity, “Why the f–k would you want to do that?”. He eventually agreed to come watch one of my ring workouts in Tampa, and after the session I said “Do you think I have what it takes?”. He simply said “Just keep working”. He immediately went home and called Vince McMahon and said “Vince you gotta see this kid, I think he can be great one day”. One week later I had my very first tryout match for the WWE in Corpus Christi, TX in front of 15,000 people.

Pat has been instrumental in creating some of the greatest storylines (Rock vs Austin, Rock vs HHH) and matches of my entire career and I’m forever grateful for his guidance and knowledge. He’s also responsible for dropping the greatest lines ever… in this picture he literally said “My God Rock when you won the title tonight the people went f–kING BANANA!” For some reason he always forgets the “s”. #PatPatterson #Legend #Mentor #Grateful.
