• Pat McAfee’s WrestleMania 39 Status

Last year at WrestleMania 38, not only did Pat McAfee did commentary, but he also had two matches.

He defeated Austin Theory and then had an impromptu match against Mr. McMahon, where he lost. He also had a beer drinking celebration with Stone Cold Steve Austin, where he got hit with a Stunner as well.

The sad news is that McAfee won’t be a part of WrestleMania 39 this weekend.

Below is what WWE CEO Nick Khan said during an interview on The Marchand & Ourand Sports Media Podcast:

“We have no plans to have him there this weekend. The world is his oyster. He’s 36 years old and look at his relevancy factor when you talk to young children. I have two young children, when I talk to them it’s often, ‘McAfee, McAfee, McAfee.’ That’s what’s in the wheelhouse for them.

So, if you look at any of the traditional buyers, what do they want? They want a young diverse audience. What does McAfee bring? He brings a young, diverse audience. You notice he doesn’t get political, extreme, either way.

He has Aaron Rodgers on, he treats him respectfully, develops that relationship, he becomes the go-to home of Aaron Rodgers. You see that with more athletes and Pat.

He’s not looking to annihilate anybody or crucify them, he’s looking to have good content and his content has been terrific. So, he’ll determine, ultimately, where he wants his home to be and our hope is that he does more with us.”

McAfee was last seen in WWE at Royal Rumble 2023, where he did commentary.
