Last year, former NFL star and sports podcaster Pat McAfee joined NXT and became an instant success in a feud with Adam Cole and eventually the Undisputed Era. McAfee wound up being one of the most natural talkers in wrestling and gave some of the best interviews in all of wrestling. He would also impress during his two matches as his natural athleticism helped as well. McAfee is now back in wrestling and he is getting some special treatment.
This week, McAfee debuted as a broadcaster on this week’s edition of SmackDown, replacing Corey Graves alongside Michael Cole. According to SI.com, WWE is aiming to avoid over-producing McAfee by letting him be himself more than most broadcasters. While McAfee is working for WWE, he will also be able to continue working on his other projects outside of the company.
