    In his new memoir Accepted, 75-year-old gay wrestling legend Pat Patterson writes about his long career in the WWE – all of which was spent in the closet.

    But if WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon has anything to say about it, gay wrestlers like Patterson won't have to hide their true selves as part of the WWE anymore.

    Speaking at a Beyond Sport United event, McMahon told NBC OUT that her company is committed to LGBT inclusion moving forward.

    "We will integrate LGBT characters into our programming," she said backstage. "And I do think there will be an opportunity to integrate some of those storylines in the near future."

    Vince McMahon is a notorious pickle sniffer. This isn't surprising.

    Vince wanted to do a storyline where Stephanie and Shane and he were in an incest relationship. True Story.

    It would be more shocking if they introduced a hetero storyline.

    This would be like if Slayer hired on a full on flaming homo to replace Jeff or Dave.
