Pat McAfee is squirming about a potential Royal Rumble appearance – and fans are all saying the same thing
A worried looking Pat McAfee caught the attention of fans as he discussed the upcoming WWE Royal Rumble.
This weekend’s star-studded show will already feature the likes of Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, Austin Theory and Bobby Lashley.
However, the identity of the surprise attendees remains a hot topic, and after broaching the topic during Wednesday’s edition of The Pat McAfee Show, fans have suggested that McAfee might be “up to something.”
During the show, McAfee and company were asked to guess the identities of this weekend’s surprise attendees, and co-host AJ Hawk was quick to speak up. Ask McAfee: “Did you get a spray tan?”
While McAfee immediately denied this, Hawk continued to tease the issue, asking if he was “making a program?”
McAfee immediately looked more fidgety with a crooked smile on his face and asked, “Me?” before explaining that he was “trying to figure out how to deal with it.”
McAfee later admitted he was planning to check out the Royal Rumble, going on to say that he’s “still in good hands, I think with everyone in WWE, which is good news.
“I still love wrestling and WWE. I’m still a fan of wrestling and WWE. Apart from that, a lot is happening in my life right now.”
Having recently completed his first season as a full-time college GameDay analyst, McAfee’s busy schedule will still be filled with his daily talk show.
Meanwhile, work is just as busy as he and his wife Samantha are expecting their first child in May.
But despite his busy schedule, McAfee is not closing the door on an eventual return to WWE.
He later elaborated, “Honestly, who knows what the future holds for me and WWE?
“The doors are still open on both sides, I haven’t had the conversation yet. I loved it… I really enjoyed my time there.”
But fans didn’t buy it, with one commenting on the clip: “Pat’s up to something! [eyes emoji] he’ll be watching, he said, but from where?!”
Another wrote: “Nice job bypassing the markers. Until Saturday.”
While one said: “I still think Pat shows up… he’s good at playing people [laughing emojis]”
McAfee, who has had stints as a commentator and wrestler in WWE since 2018, resigned from WWE last September after taking on the role of analyst at College GameDay.
