 Gene Rayburn  and Richard Dawson  Relationship 

Gene Rayburn and Richard Dawson had a famously combative relationship, both on and off the set of The Match Game. The two men had very different personalities, and they often butt heads with each other.

Hate Friendship Game

Rayburn was a notoriously difficult interviewee, and Dawson was known for his quick wit and sharp tongue. The two men often traded barbs back and forth, and it was all in good fun. However, there were times when things got a little too heated between them.

In one famous incident, Dawson called Rayburn a “son of a bitch” after he made a joke about Dawson’s wife. Dawson was so angry that he threw a punch at Rayburn, but fortunately, he missed.

Despite their disagreements, Rayburn and Dawson were actually good friends. They respected each other’s talents and they enjoyed working together. They even appeared on each other’s shows from time to time.

Death And Mourn

Their relationship was so strong that, when Rayburn passed away in 1999, Dawson was one of the first people to publicly mourn his death.
