Pat McAfee to wrestle WWE owner Vince McMahon at Wrestlemania 38?

Written by Doug Rush

On Thursday, Pat McAfee is set to have WWE owner Vince McMahon on his show this Thursday.

At first, we all thought it was to promote Wrestlemania 38, which will be two nights on Saturday, April 2 and Sunday, April 3. But apparently, there’s more to it from reports.

So Vince McMahon, who is 76 years old and hasn’t wrestled a match in 12 years, is going to have a match with a former NFL player in Pat McAfee?

We got that right?

Now, this is all speculation until the show happens on Thursday. But clearly, all eyes are on the show.

If this is the case, it wouldn’t be the first time McAfee worked a program in WWE, as he worked a program and eventually wrestled Adam Cole when he was a part of NXT.

Stay tuned for The Pat McAfee Show on Thursday at noon.
