Pat McAfee had his WrestleMania moment, not once, not twice, but thrice. The former NFL punter beat Austin Theory in a fun match, lost to Vince McMahon in an impromptu match, and got stunned by “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.
The SmackDown commentator described how Vince worked the crowd prior to accepting McAfee’s challenge for an in-ring confrontation. He also joked that the boss abused his power at the Showcase of the Immortals.
“You should’ve heard the stadium whenever he was thinking about it. Whenever he had that jacket on and he started tempting taking it off, man, there was like a, like a buzz raising in there and I was like, ‘is this, is this, is this?’
“So people need to know, like, the wrestling business. People understand what the wrestling business is, but there’s things that happen out there on a very regular occasion that are not like, you know, ‘hey, this is not how this is supposed to go.’
“And you just are, like, there’s people around that are like, ‘uh, hey, yeah. This is happening now,’ basically. You know, and I’m just like, ‘what the, alright’. I sat up on the ropes, you know?
“I sat up there for a second and I looked around and I saw 76-year-old Vince McMahon taking his shirt off. I’m like, ‘is this a movie right now? Like, this has to be a simulation’. And then obviously, Austin Theory attacked me from behind, Vince abuses his power, and that ref. What the f**k was he doing?”
McAfee pulled double duty as he did commentary and wrestled two matches on the second night of WrestleMania 38. The 34-year-old was seen drinking beer while lying down on the floor after he took the stunner from the Texas Rattlesnake.
