Pat McAfee recorded a Vince McMahon parody for the Throwback SmackDown. That segment was supposed to open the show, but they cut it. Thankfully, fans got to see it a little later on.

During the Pat McAfee Show, he detailed what went into creating that big for SmackDown. It’s a shame that millions didn’t see it on Fox, but at least they uploaded it online later on.

This segment also caused Part McAfee to shave his face for the first time in years. Now he hates having a babyface and says he looks twelve without his stubble.

“On Friday, to commit to a bit of being Vince McMahon on SmackDown Throwback, I was bullied into shaving my face. Michael Cole was one of the leaders of that bullying. I thought it was Be A Star. Michael Cole goes, ‘You could commit and shave your face.’ Cole had an awesome look as well, which didn’t make it to air. He had the frosted tips and he committed to 1999 Michael Cole. We had the wig, which was too small for my head and it felt like my forehead was in a rear-naked choke. We had the suit, the tie, I wore dress shoes for the first time.”

“A lot of people in WWE were like, ‘this is awesome. We’ll remember this and you doing it for the character and the bit.’ I shaved, it looked terrible. I got makeup on, we shot a bunch of sh*t. I did an entire Vince McMahon thing. Immediately following, literally, as soon as I walked off-screen, Foxy [McAfee Show Video Producer Evan Fox] gets a text from someone that works at WWE [saying] ‘hang tight.’ I go, ‘Oh, Vince is coming?’ No, that’s not the case. They come out and everything has been canceled. I walk back into the building and everyone who was motivating me to shave my face, they heard about what happened, and were like, ‘Sorry, so sorry, it’ll grow back.’ FOUR DAYS! NOTHING! THAT BEARD WAS OLDER THAN JESUS F*CKING CHRIST! I look like I’m twelve.”

We’ll have to see if the real reason why that bit was cancelled ever comes out. It might be quite an interesting story, because Pat McAfee nailed his impression of Vince McMahon to a tee.
