Pat McAfee Reveals The Phrase That Gets Him Yelled At

Pat McAfee

Pat McAfee has revealed the one phrase that is guaranteed to get him yelled at while he’s on commentary.

Since joining the SmackDown announce team in April 2021, Pat McAfee has become a huge hit with fans. His puppy-like energy and enthusiasm for the in-ring action has endeared him to the WWE Universe, while his occasional unorthodox turn of phrase has lent itself to many a comedic moment.

Who can forget his in famous “P*ss missile” comment back at Hell In A Cell?

However, not all of McAfee’s one-liners are always well received by those backstage. For decades WWE commentators have told stories about being yelled at by Vince McMahon and other members of the production team and the former NFL star has now revealed that he’s no exception.

Despite once comparing Vince McMahon’s instructions to “hearing the voice of God” McAfee says there’s one phrase that is guaranteed to get him yelled at; “future Hall of Famer.”

McAfee made the admission on a recent episode of the Pat McAfee Show with Seth Rollins, where he referred to his guest as a future Hall of Famer.

“Ladies and gentlemen, WWE Future Hall of Famer….by the way, I actually get yelled at every time I say, ‘Future Hall of Famer’ for this person. They’re like….it’s not always Vince (McMahon), it’s somebody that drops in, ‘we don’t know if that’s true or not.’ It’s an amazing time. I try to sneak that in at least once a show to see how many Hall of Famers I can put in there,”

Back in the ring, Seth Freakin’ Rollins is currently heading for a WWE Championship showdown at Elimination Chamber. After missing out on becoming Universal Champion at Royal Rumble, Rollins was added into the upcoming Elimination Chamber match for the WWE Title.

Rollins will be competing against AJ Styles, Austin Theory, Brock Lesnar and Riddle to dethrone Bobby Lashley.
