Del Wilkes was Born December 21, 1961 and is an American retired professional wrestler, better known by his ring name, The Patriot. Over the course of his nine-year career, Wilkes wrestled for the American Wrestling Association, the Global Wrestling Federation, All Japan Pro Wrestling, World Championship Wrestling, and the World Wrestling Federation.

After leaving the WWF, Wilkes retired due to torn triceps. Since leaving the business, Del admitted that he had used steroids and cocaine during his career, starting with his college football days. He spent nine months in prison in 2002 for forging a prescription due to his addiction to painkillers. As of July 2007, Del has since quit drugs and is a car salesman in Columbia, South Carolina at Dick Smith Nissan where he also resides with his wife Cathy. In a July 25, 2007 interview with WACH reporter Justin Kier, Del discussed his career, steroid use, the Chris Benoit tragedy, and various other topics. Kier's last two questions involved saying goodbye to the fans and giving advice to youngsters in the wrestling business. Del urged young wrestlers to "learn from our mistakes." He said that 50 people who he once worked with in the wrestling business are now dead.
