Vince McMahon gave a rare media interview this afternoon. McMahon’s much-anticipated sit-down with Pat McAfee took place. McAfee claimed throughout his broadcast that the interview wasn’t going to be scripted. Many believed that the whole thing was to set up a WrestleMania storyline.
It has been reported that Pat McAfee is booked for a match with Vince McMahon at WrestleMania 38. The bout would be mostly smoke and mirrors due to McMahon’s age. Vince is 76 years old.
McMahon finally took to the air to talk to the former NFL punter after all the anticipation. The two had a conversation that spanned a lot of issues. After a very interesting talk, Vince offered Pat a match on the grandest stage of them all.
“I know you love what we do and you’re a part of the team. Big time. People in the organization really enjoy you. Fans all over the world really enjoy you being you. You can’t find anyone, I imagine back in the day, Bob Costas standing up on a desk dancing around.
But, you’re you and that’s why it works. With that, I’d like to offer you an opportunity to actually wrestle at WrestleMania. In the ring. It would be the difference, though, when you played for the Colts. OK, you’re the punter, but now, in the ring, you’re going to be a linebacker.We’ll find some worthy opponent for you and put you in the ring.”
Pat McAfee said he was a little out of shape but was thrilled to accept. The deal is done. Pat McAfee is the latest celebrity to officially have a match at WrestleMania 38!
