I thought that the Patriot was played by Kurt Angle (looked like the same physique and it's the same entrance music). But I was reading a Bret Hart column and he mentioned that he was honored that Kurt said that Hart was his favorite wrestler, but said he had never met him before. Did someone else play the Patriot? I do remember that Hart and the Patriot had a feud for a while.
This is one of the hundreds of "Patriot" questions I've received. Everyone is asking the same type of questions, so I figured I'd answer this and hopefully it will answer everyone's question.
First of all, The Patriot character was played by Del Wilkes, in the WWF and WCW. In the WWF, Del Wilkes use to go under Kurt Angle's current theme song. To my knowledge, no one else played The Patriot character in the WWF or WCW, it was always Del Wilkes. Hope this answers everyone's question.
