• Bruce Prichard Comments On Rumors Of Triple H Forcing WWF Hall Of Famer Pat Patterson To Retire
During a recent edition of Something To Wrestle podcast, Old School WWF Veteran Bruce Prichard was asked about rumors of Triple H forcing WWF Hall of Famer Pat Patterson to retire.
Below is what Bruce said:
“It’s complete bullsh*t.
I mean, I started to laugh when you said ‘Pat Patterson’s retirement’ because yes, he’s still around now.
And Pat, I think that the — okay, first Pat retired from being in the ring. Then Pat retired in the office. He got a big screen TV then. Then he came back, and then he retired again. Got a second big screen TV, and then he came back. And I told him the second time he came back, ‘Okay Pat.’ I said, ‘This is it. No more big screen for you. You’re gonna stay a while this time.’
So Pat had a tendency to, when he would be on the road for a while, he would get tired. He would just get burned out. And at this point in his career [in 2005], he was single. He was living life, and he couldn’t do that being gone as many days a week as it took to be on the road and everything. So he looked at it and just wanted to have more ‘Me time.’
And Pat was fed up with the business at that point. When I say ‘fed up with the business,’ he was fed up with the travel.
He was fed up with being at the building at 11:00 for the production meeting, and then having to do the show, and then talk about it afterward.”
