WWE NXT Roster Pays Tribute To Pat Patterson On Tonight's Show (Photos)

Tonight's "Takeover: WarGames 2020" go-home edition of WWE NXT on the USA Network opened up with a tribute to WWE Hall of Famer Pat Patterson, who passed away at the age of 79 this morning following a battle with cancer.

The show opened with Triple H and the rest of the NXT roster, including WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels and William Regal, standing on the stage for a tribute to the inaugural WWE Intercontinental Champion.

NXT then cut to a video package on Patterson's legendary career, which was set to "My Way" by Frank Sinatra. The show then came back to a "thank you Pat!" chant from the Capitol Wrestling Center crowd, while images of Patterson were displayed on the LED boards around the arena.
