Pat McAfee has a weekly presence in NXT and his Brand is running roughshod over the roster. His time in NXT has been eventful, but he doesn’t know if a WWE main roster run would be as effective.

While speaking to Busted Open Radio, Pat McAfee explained that he has neve read a book in his life. That would make reading scripts on the WWE main roster difficult. He learns by heading, and McAfee said that his time on the WWE main roster wouldn’t work as well.

“Yeah, probably not. I’m in such a good situation where I can say that. I have a business, I have 10 employees, my guys and I go to work every single day trying to do our show and we have a merch business that does really well. Literally, everything I’ve said in promos is true. I’m in a very lucky situation for everything I’ve been in and I understand that a lot of professional wrestlers aren’t. I’m in a situation where I don’t want to say I can pick and choose, but it really is – if something gets pitched to me that I’m not 100 percent cool with, I am very much in a situation where I’m like ‘Nah, it’s OK, I appreciate that, and we’ll see if something else happens down the road.’ And I’m not a good reader.”

“I’ve literally never read a book in my entire life – that’s not something to brag about obviously and I don’t think kids should do that – it’s just not something I can do, it’s not my thing. I’m more a visual, I can hear things learner. When you hear about the script reading thing, I don’t think I’m that good of an actor that I could pull that off. So, I don’t think it would be good for them, and I don’t think it would be good for me……even though that is a bigger platform for the moment, that doesn’t feel like it would be good for me or for them to be a part of.”


Pat McAfee will battle alongside his Brand stable at WarGames against the Undisputed Era. That match could feature some very unpredictable moments. Don’t expect Pat McAfee to show up on the WWE main roster unless they give him a lot more leeway with what he’s able to say.
