Why would you wear shorts at your job's biggest event? That's pure stupid.

Im glad they got it all worked out and all sides seem fine with how everything went but I just dont like how Cole or Pat handled themselves during this.
Cole was out of order, hence the apology but McAfee was entirely in the wrong - he was told "no jorts" and decided to be super fucking pedantic and work suit shorts? At WWE's biggest event of the year?

Clearly a huge dick.

If Michael Cole tried to punk me in front of everyone I'd fucking walk out too!

Agree with the both but the last. When you're getting dressed down and humilliated in front of everyone like that, you're probably not gonna be thinking straight and you're just concentrating at restraining yourself. When the dust cleared and Pat could clear his thoughts for a bit, he probably realized that he didn't need to take any of this shit and he'd rather just quit.

This is why there should be WWE uniforms.

They arent jorts technically but I do get your point and agree at the biggest event of the year, a little more professionalism is to be expected.

I may be different. I have had people who dont have authority over me attempt to dress me down in front of co workers before. I dont wait until its behind closed doors, I just reacted and spoke what I wanted. Nothing was unprofessional and there was no yelling, I just dont like him telling someone else to go tell Cole to go fuck himself, stand up for yourself you go tell him.

If someone has an issue with how Im doing things, there are ways to address that and yelling at someone in front of their co workers is not the way to do it. A boss doing it is one thing but just another co worker, naw.

Not something you make public if you accept the apology and want to move on with things. Did he just decide to tell this story or was he asked about it because it leaked elsewhere? If it's the former it's wholly unprofessional in it's own right and done for the sole purpose of embarrassing Michael Cole who you said gave you a legit, heartfelt apology.

McMahon and WWE value McAffee because he has MSM crossover potential and probably want him for SDL because he's an ex-NFL'er and SDL wants to go more sports-based.

Re: Pat McAfee Almost Walked Out Of WWE WrestleMania After Michael Cole Yelled At Him

I mean, you think it would be common knowledge to not wear shorts on their biggest show of the year, much less at all when your supposed to look professional for the most part.

I mean yeah it's kind of a dick thing to call him out for.....but they're fucking shorts. Again, common knowledge.
