Pat McAfee

Pat McAfee might be a man with boundless energy but the busiest man in wrestling man have just gotten a whole lot busier.

After an eight-year career in the NFL with the Indianapolis Colts, Pat McAfee set about taking the world’s of sports analytics and talk show radio by storm.

The result has seen McAfee host his incredibly successful show, ‘The Pat McAfee Show’ on SiriusXM and YouTube, while also previously working for Fox Sports.

Following his retirement from the NFL, McAfee also began dipping his toes into the crazy world of WWE in 2018. This eventually led to him competing in the ring and becoming an on-screen personality. On April 16th 2021 McAfee became colour commentator for Friday Night SmackDown alongside Michael Cole.

Since taking the position the star has become a favourite among fans for his child-like enthusiasm and incredible natural chemistry alongside Cole.

However, with McAfee, football is never far away and it has now been reported by the New York Post that the star has become a full-time member of ESPN’s ‘College Gameday’ team. His first assignment will be the clash between Alabama Crimson Tide versus Texas Longhorns on September 10th.

The announcer has also agreed to do alternative broadcasts for select college football games on ESPN 2.

Unbelievably it seems that McAfee isn’t quite done there as he teased another announcement on social media.

“My life is dumb. If I was 2 die tomorrow, right b4 passing I’d be proud & dumbfounded of what I have been lucky enough 2 do. Massive announcement coming at some point this week.. truly Bananaland. Have a great night beautiful people. I appreciate u all more than u could imagine”

Pat McAfee’s most recent in-ring outing came against Happy Corbin at SummerSlam in July.
