Pat McAfee is a vociferous color commentator with no boundaries. McAfee is an outspoken, charismatic, oddball of an individual that’s beloved by many. At Backlash, McAfee made a Fiend reference that’s been trending lately.
During Charlotte and Ronda Rousey’s SmackDown Women’s Title bout, a youngster was spotted in the crowd wearing a Fiend outfit. McAfee acknowledged his presence by asking if The Fiend was sitting ringside, but Michael Cole chose to ignore him for fear of repercussions.
The brief reference made fans believe The Fiend is returning to WWE. Ringside News covered Windham Rotunda’s asking price for a future wrestling run. Rotunda hinted at possibly retiring from wrestling due to personal reasons. He was their top-earners with a $4 million salary. We’ll cover any updates related to Rotunda.
McAfee’s remarks is generating positive fan feedback. His bold attitude at the announce table proves he’s not afraid of taboo subjects in WWE. We fear McAfee’s WWE days our outnumbered due to his senseless remarks. Regardless of where he goes, he’ll be commemorated for his goofy, and vociferous attitude.
Pat McAfee is known to go off the cuff on commentary, so it’s unlikely that line was fed to him. As for The Fiend, sadly he didn’t really appear at WrestleMania Backlash, but that won’t stop fans from keeping their hopes alive.
