The 2024 Royal Rumble presented fans with a lot of surprises. One big surprise was the return of Pat McAfee who performed commentary duties for the show.
Another big surprise was the appearance of TNA Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace who entered the match in the number five spot. Grace performed quite well in the match and lasted 19 minutes before she was eliminated by Bianca Belair.
One thing that was evident during her entrance to the ring was Pat McAfee’s confusion. McAfee admitted on the Pat McAfee Show this week that he did not know who Jordynne Grace was during her entrance.
“Jordynne Grace. I had no clue who that was. As I was going through Gorilla to get up and out … I see her, and I’m like, because she had a title around her and she was facing away, I’m like, ‘Holy f**k. Who is jocked, absolutely jocked?’ Then I come out there, and they’re like, ‘TNA Knockouts Champion.’ It’s like, ‘Holy s**t.’”
Pat McAfee was announced as the new color commentator for Monday Night RAW this week much to the delight of the fans. It looks like McAfee will be a regular feature on WWE television.
