Pat McAfee Comments On His WWE Future
Pat McAfee addresses his future with WWE
Amid uncertainty around his WWE future after signing a multi-million dollar deal to bring his show to ESPN, Pat McAfee has revealed he and WWE management are discussing his return.
"My relationship with WWE is, I don't want to say stronger than it's ever been, but actually stronger than it's ever been and we are all very much talking about how I get back into the universe because I love it. I love it, I think I'm good at it, I think I'm supposed to be in there. I understand why people are doing things, I think that's why commentating was a good spot for me alongside Michael Cole, the greatest of all time. Getting stunned by "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. I lived out dream, after dream, after dream over there. I love that place. Our relationship is very strong. We're working. We're all trying to figure it out," McAfee said on the SI Media Podcast.
McAfee previously served as a commentator on Friday Night SmackDown but he stepped away from that role in September 2022 to join ESPN College GameDay. McAfee was a guest commentator for January's Royal Rumble pay-per-view and he returned again at WrestleMania 39 to defeat The Miz in an impromptu match.
