VOC NATION: Gerald Brisco talks about his relationship with Pat Patterson, raising his son Wes

Posted on 1/15/121 by VOC Nation WWE Hall of Fame Member Gerald Brisco was a guest on the
latest edition of Brisco and Big Ace, which is hosted by his
son Wes. Gerry talked about Wes relationship with both
Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage, Xavier Woods going out of his
way to help Wes, and his friendship with Pat Patterson.
Here are just a few highlights:

On Wes getting engaged: Well I was shocked. I knew it
would take a fine woman, but I didnt think that he would
capture such a fine woman. Congratulations to him and (Red
Velvet) and I look forward to being a grandfather He wasnt
an easy guy to deal with that weekend; he was a real pain in
the (butt), and I know what a pain in the (butt) is because
Ive raised him all my life, and hes been a pain in the
(butt) since he was a little, bitty, baby boy.

On the time Wes punched Hulk Hogan in the groin: One day
we heard a bunch of motorcycles coming down our driveway.
We looked out the window and there was Hulk Hogan and Brutus
Beefcake (After spending some time out back by the lake)
were walking back toward the house and (Hulk) looked down
at Wes and said hey Wes, do you like wrestling? Wes said
oh yeah I like wrestling, I can throw a good punch too.
So he reared back Hogans (tall) and Wes is (short) he
reared back and he hits Hogan and hits him right smack dab
in the (darn) crotch. He knocked the breath out of Terry.

On Randy Savage being a great friend: Macho Man, God rest
his soul, what a great guy he was. Him and Wes, from the
time Wes was just a baby to whenever Macho Man left us, him
and Wes were really tight and really good friends. I was
really proud of that. Macho Man was a really strange cat as
you know, he didnt make a lot of friends. He really had
something special for Wes. Anytime Wes was in school and
Wes needed somebody there to come and talk, hed ask me and
Id say OK lets call Randy Randy of course couldnt turn
it down, so here come Randy and Miss Elizabeth to Wes
school. So Wes was over with all the guys and girls and
especially the teachers.

Wes Brisco on Savages passion for kids: I think Macho Man
really enjoyed talking at schools because when he retired,
all he did was worked with special needs people. He pretty
much donated the rest of his life to helping out special
needs kids and being there for them. I think he always had
a heart for kids and always enjoyed the aspects of kids.

On Xavier Woods: Ill always be grateful for Xavier Woods
because Xavier really took Wes under his wing. Xavier had
come from TNA and had already experienced a high level, and
he was able to pass that knowledge willingly on to Wes and
elevate Wes not only in the ring but (also) mentally.
Thats what I really appreciate. Its great when a guy
takes the time and teaches you how to be a better tag team
partner, but when he takes the time and teaches you how to
be a better business man, thats helping the business (and)
helping everybody elevate their selves. Thats what Xavier
did for Wes and Ill always be grateful for that.

On being part of the Stooges with Pat Patterson: What made
that so good was that it was so organic. It just kind of
grew on its own. Nobody planned on it being such a hit, the
Stooges getting over so much Pat and I had such great
chemistry together, and we worked off of each other. Pat
was just a hilarious guy to be around; you could not be
around Pat without laughing Pat was a dear friend, and
hell be missed. He was so giving to Wes when it came to
knowledge and all that stuff It broke my heart when he
