Pat McAfee took very little time to become one of the best things about Friday Night Smackdown. This is because of his solid skills as a commentator and his energetic personality. McAfee and Happy Corbin will battle at SummerSlam, but they were also roommates long before feuding in WWE.

McAfee became a fan-favorite thanks to his passion for pro wrestling, among other things, and the way he can hype up any given moment in WWE. Fans certainly appreciate him for that as well. He also knows how to lay it on Happy Corbin with chants like “Bum Ass Corbin” that he orchestrates.

For the past few weeks, Pat McAfee and Happy Corbin have been engaged in a bitter feud as well. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Pat McAfee and Happy Corbin were roommates in 2009 for the Indianapolis Colts.

It hasn’t been brought up in the program yet although it did surface this past week with rookie photos of both, but the two were actually friends and roommates when both were rookies in 2009 for the Indianapolis Colts. A few years back McAfee noted that Corbin (Tom Pestock) lived in his house for the few months he was in Colts camp and they did a lot of stuff off the field together.


Pestock was a Division II All-MIAA Conference player who went undrafted and was cut twice in camp and never made the regular season roster. McAfee was a seventh round draft choice who made the team and ended up as an All-Pro punter in 2014 and was one of the best punters in the league most of his career.

The former punter is currently scheduled to square off against Happy Corbin in a match at SummerSlam. We’ll have to wait and see how the match will turn out to be.
