– Austin Theory talked to Vince McMahon about Vince’s appearance on The Pat McAfee Show.
Theory reminded Vince that last time Vince did a similar sit-down interview 20 years ago, he got mad at the interviewer and almost got physical, thus scaring the interviewer away.
However, Theory speculated what if McAfee doesn’t scare away and jumps McMahon? Theory said he could appear on the show with Vince to protect his boss.
Vince said it’s not that kind of show and left. Theory then said “but it could be”.

As we have noted before, this is expected to lead to a WrestleMania 38 match, which will either be Pat McAfee vs. Vince McMahon or Pat McAfee vs. Austin Theory.
– Finn Balor def. Damian Priest (c) to win the United States Championship (After the match, Priest said fans carried Balor to this victory. Priest said fans never showed any appreciation for him during his Title reign, but that’s fine because he’s going to win the Title again and not care what the fans thing. Priest then attacked Balor and turned heel. He hit the Razor’s Edge on Balor on the announce table)
