• Former WWE Announcer Rants About Michael Cole’s Ridiculous Temper

During a recent edition of The Pat McAfee Show, WWE analyst Pat McAfee talked about Michael Cole being angry at him for wearing shorts at WrestleMania 35 and said he almost quit WWE after that altercation.

Below is what Pat said:

“[Michael Cole said] ‘I told you no shorts!’ I said you told me no jorts. He said ‘you look unprofessional, you look sloppy.’ He was like yelling at me in front of all these people that I looked up to.

He was like yelling. This wasn’t like a rib, or like a gimmick, you could tell there was actual panic.

I then walked back to where watch-a-long was happening and I grabbed my bag and I told the digital guy…I said ‘you can tell Michael Cole to go f*** himself. I am leaving. I am not getting punked and yelled at like a child in front of everybody.

You guys think I’m some schlub. This is a second job to me, I’m very lucky to be here, very excited to here but I’m not going to get yelled at like I’m a f***ing child.”

This story led to former WWE announcer Alex Del Barrio revealing his experience of working with Cole.

Alex revealed his story in multiple tweets and you can read them below:
