WWE featured Pat Patterson’s memory in full focus during SmackDown this week. They also brought Gerald Brisco and Sgt. Slaughter onto the stage for the 10-bell salute. This was a touching tribute, and a very special occasion.

We have been asked by fans if Gerald Brisco coming back to SmackDown was a sign that WWE re-hired him. Ringside News can report that is not the case.

We were told that “no one is back.” Both Brisco and Slaughter were brought in for the 10-bell salute and for sit-down interviews. Brisco’s sit-down interview was quite emotional, and you can watch it here.

Pat Patterson’s passing was a very sad loss and many might not even fully realize how much of an impact he had on the entire pro wrestling business. His old friends Gerald Brisco and Sgt. Slaughter were able to make it to the ThunderDome for a special tribute.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
