Pat McAfee joined WWE SmackDown as a commentator in 2021 and quickly became very popular with the fans due to his amazing work. He also wrestled a couple of matches on the main roster and in NXT.

However, he had to take time off from WWE last year after he got the opportunity to be a part of the ESPN “College Gameday” panel. He last appeared on WWE programming at WrestleMania 39 earlier this year to defeat The Miz in an impromptu match.

During a Q/A session on Instagram, McAfee said that he’s not getting time to return to WWE, but the two sides are trying to work out something for him.

“This is going to sound like pandering or a cheap pop, and it’s not. Every day. Literally.

When I was in the NFL, I was envious of people who could do indie wrestling because I wasn’t allowed under my NFL contract, and I couldn’t jeopardize what was paying for me, [my] family, and friends to have a much better life.

I got an opportunity to wrestle and do the WWE life, and it was an honor and a dream, and I had the time of my f**king life in there. Loved it every single moment, but now my business has got to a point where I’m very lucky for this and fortunate for this.

We’ve worked our a$$ off, but I’m incredibly busy, and we’ve got 15 employees over here that are having babies and building houses.

It’s a tough thing to deal with mentally because, emotionally, I want to be there, but I just can’t timing-wise. We will figure it out.”
