Pat McAfee Says He Had No Idea Steve Austin Moment Was Going To Happen
A spontaneous moment it seems for Pat McAfee
Pat McAfee had an eventful WrestleMania 38 as not only did he commentate on the majority of SmackDown's matches, he defeated Austin Theory at The Showcase Of The Immortals before losing an impromptu match to Vince McMahon. The former NFL punter then briefly drank a steveweiser with 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin before he received a Stunner from The Texas Rattlesnake.
Speaking about his WrestleMania experience on his show, Pat McAfee revealed he didn't know the Austin moment was going to happen.
"I did not know that was happening, that whole thing I had no idea that was happening. Us chugging a couple of beers together? [In Stone Cold voice], 'Hey kid, I'ma go this way, you go that way' it was awesome," McAfee said.
The SmackDown commentator also revealed his confrontation with McMahon didn't happen as it "was supposed to go."
"You should have heard the stadium whenever he was thinking about it, whenever he had that jacket on and he started tempting taking it off, man there was like a buzz raising in there, so I was like is this...is this...? So people need to know, like the wrestling business. People understand what the wrestling business is, but there's things that happen out there on a very regular occasion that are not like, you know, hey like this is not how this was supposed to go, and you just are, like there's people that are around that are like 'oh hey yeah, this is happening now' basically, you know and I'm just like, what the? Alright," McAfee added.
"So I sat up on the ropes, you know, I sat there for a second and I looked around and I saw a 76-year-old Vince McMahon taking his shirt off, I'm like 'is this a movie right now?' Like this has to be a simulation and then obviously Austin Theory attacks me from behind, Vince abuses his power, and that ref, what the f**k was he doing?"
