WWE News: Rocky Johnson's family felt 'love and respect' from Vince McMahon & Pat Patterson at his funeral


Rocky Johnson's best friend, Al Rosen, has cleared up reports that Vince McMahon and Pat Patterson behaved inappropriately at his funeral earlier this week.

Last week on Wednesday, WWE Hall of Famer Rocky Johnson sadly passed away at the age of 75. The Soulman will be remembered for helping to create a path for mixed-race wrestlers to succeed in professional wrestling.

The father of The Rock, Johnson passed away due to a blood clot in his leg travelling up to his lung, which caused a heart attack. Vince McMahon and Pat Patterson attended his funeral, which took place on Wednesday.

However, both Vince and Pat have been accused of being drunk and disorderly at the funeral.

Patterson allegedly called Johnson a 'motherf***er' before being dragged from the stage, while Vince reportedly said the best thing Johnson did was have kids.

Al Rosen, Rocky Johnson's best friend, called Hannibal to deny the reports that Vince and Pat were disrespectful at the funeral, stating that the Johnson family 'felt nothing but love and respect'.

Rosen said, via Ringside News: “Vince was short, but he was direct. He said probably what Rocky would have wanted someone to say about him.

"He was a talented, gifted worker and the best thing that he ever did — which he admitted to me hundreds of times — was marrying Ata and having a baby named Dwayne. He often spoke of his other two kids.

"He would say, ‘I want to be remembered as a father, as a husband, and as a friend and a worker.”


Rosen added that while Patterson wasn't exactly clean with his language, he wasn't disrespectful either during his speech.

He said: “Did Pat use ‘church language?’ Like if you and I were talking and I said ‘goddamnit,’ you wouldn’t think anything of it.

"He’s saying ‘Rocky did this goddamnit’ and ‘Yeah we did that, sh*t,’ but you know the preacher and the assistant preacher — People saying that he got pulled off the stage. No, that’s how stories get started. They turned the mic off.

"The guy sitting behind them turned the mic off and Pat said another sentence and walked off. No MFs or anything he was never disrespected. He said G-Damn.”

Looks like the Johnson Family was not offended by anything that happened at Rocky Johnson's funeral. They just felt love and respect.
