Update on Plans for Monday Night’s Raw Involving Pat Patterson & Bret Hart
Plans as of yesterday for Monday’s Raw in Montreal is for Pat Patterson’s appreciation segment not to air live, similar to Shawn Michael’s appreciation night.
Patterson, who is from Montreal, has been affiliated with WWE since the late 70s and his run with Bob Backlund for the title, and has worked as an announcer, booker, agent, head of talent relations and several other jobs. He’s the guy who came up with the Royal Rumble concept after being involved in Roy Shire Battle Royals in the 60s and 70s and is regarded as one of the greatest at coming up with finishes in the history of wrestling.
Focal points of tomorrow’s show are expected to be Bret Hart’s appearance and CM Punk, Paul Heyman and John Cena on-going storyline.
