Pat McAfee is back in the fold as a full-time commentator on WWE, with RAW being his first show in a long time. He was a witness to Seth Rollins imploding Cody Rhodes to pick him as a WrestleMania 40 opponent and McAfee felt Rollins made a strong case.

During this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, Cody Rhodes more or less made it clear he was going after Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40. However, Seth Rollins intervened and made the case for him to be Rhodes’ opponent instead.

While speaking on The Pat McAfee Show, Pat McAfee shared his thoughts on his first night as a member of the WWE RAW commentary team, highlighting some key moments.

McAfee mentioned WWE Intercontinental Champion Gunther’s impactful slaps, emphasizing the intensity of those shots. McAfee acknowledged Gunther’s impressive title reign as the longest of all time. He also pointed out Seth Rollins’ compelling case for Cody Rhodes to challenge him for the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 40.


“Lot of slapping last night with Gunther. Those shots, you feel them. It’s like, ‘Who the hell…?’ I’m not taking one of those. He has [had the title for a long time]. Longest of all time. We’re talking about legendary runs right now. Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins last night made quite a case for the World Heavyweight Championship to be the one that Cody Rhodes [should challenge for]. Compelling case.”

The reason for Cody Rhodes not directly announcing his opponent for WrestleMania 40 has also been revealed. We have also reported what’s the plan for Seth Rollins’ WrestleMania 40 opponent as well.

Only time will tell whether Cody Rhodes will end up picking Roman Reigns as his opponent, as fans eagerly wait for his next move.
