The New York Post reported the following today about WWE special attraction wrestler & commentator Pat McAfee:

“The Pat McAfee Show is moving to ESPN in a multimillion-dollar deal that he is expected to begin in the fall, The Post has learned.

In the process, McAfee appears as if he will walk away from his four-year, $120 million contract with FanDuel.

He is in the second year of the agreement.

The amount ESPN will pay McAfee is not fully known yet, but it is more than eight figures per year, according to sources.

The move comes with Disney in the midst of layoffs that will see 7,000 jobs eliminated, including those at ESPN.”

McAfee recently became a father. Below is what he tweeted about it:

“Today’s a day that @MrsMcAfeeShow and I have been dreaming of.. I can’t wait to see where this foot gets to go beautiful girl. WE LOVE YOU.

Baby and Momma are both healthy.

Momma and I are floating with joy. This is amazing. Thanks for all of the good vibes.


McAfee was last seen on WWE programming at WrestleMania 39 Saturday, where he defeated The Miz in an impromptu match.

Pat has noted in interviews that he is unsure about his future in WWE as a full-time commentator.

Along with being a Father now, he’s also busy with his daily radio show and ESPN’s College Gameday.
