WWE aired Friday Night SmackDown this week, and it was a very special Throwback episode. One pretty great segment was cut, and it’s pretty obvious to see why.
WWE filmed an intro for SmackDown with Pat McAfee looking like Vince McMahon. He even had The Chairman’s slicked-back Throwback hair. McAfee played it up for the camera and even did McMahon’s signature walk. You can check out the video here.
McAfee revealed that the segment was cut from the show almost immediately after it was filmed. It wouldn’t be a bit surprising if Vince McMahon was the reason behind this segment not airing on Fox.
Tonight was gonna be a memorable 1. I was prepared to have no voice for weeks.. Got the Bentley driven DAHN there. Shaved my face 4 the first time in my life.
Ideas got changed immediately after filming this
I’m thankful we got the clip. All in all fun night on #SmackDAHN
WWE has their own reasons for putting everything on air. They also have their reasons for cutting things. Obviously, Pat McAfee’s impression of Vince McMahon was just too hot for TV.
