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



By Paul Davis, April 10, 2019


Pat McAfee almost walked out of WrestleMania 35 on Sunday night after an argument with Michael Cole.

McAfee noted on his podcast that he wore a tuxedo and he was specifically told no jorts so he wore tuxedo pants and turned them into shorts.

McAfee had previously been part of the NXT TakeOver pre-shows but this was his first time doing a Kickoff show for the main roster and it just happened to be for WrestleMania, WWEs biggest show of the year in front of 80,000+ fans.

McAfee said Vince McMahon didnt say a word to him during rehearsals because he looked busy but Michael Cole called him on the phone panicking with the entire McMahon family in the guerilla [position] with Superstars and celebrities in the area.

McAfee recounts Cole telling him, I told you no shorts! I said you told me no jorts. He said you look unprofessional, you look sloppy. He was like yelling at me in front of all these people that I looked up to.

He continued, He was like yelling. This wasnt like a rib, or like a gimmick, you could tell there was actual panic, McAfee said.

McAfee said he felt like he could have been told earlier because he was wearing the outfit for about 10 hours and it was 45 minutes before the show when Cole yelled at him.

I then walked back to where watch-a-long was happening and I grabbed my bag and I told the digital guy I said you can tell Michael Cole to go f**k himself. I am leaving. I am not getting punked and yelled at like a child in front of everybody. You guys think Im some schlub. This is a second job to me, Im very lucky to be here, very excited to here but Im not going to get yelled at like Im a f**king child.

McAfee said the digital guy quarantined him in a room for kids and he took of picture of himself at how ridiculous he looked in the room.

McAfee says he was told that Vince McMahon was shown a photo of Lebron James wearing a short suit and Vince McMahon said, yea, Im hip, Ive seen it.

I guess Vince said he loved it, McAfee said.

McAfee said Cole later apologized. They come back, Michael Cole comes back and gives me one of the realest apologies Ive ever got in my entire life.

He said Cole told him its been a long and stressful week and he was worried about McAfee ruining the gig for himself because he didnt think McMahon would react well because it would have been the first time McMahon would have seen him on TV.

McAfee said he thanked Cole for the apology.

He looks ridiculous and Lebron looked ridiculous in the capri pants too. No guy will ever make dressing up like a woman look "cool"

To be fair to Cole, he does look stupid in that get up.

Although I find it hysterical that the thought that Vince might flip out has got them so wound tight, haha.

I'm not even going for a joke here. If he walked out, would ANY fan of the WWE even care? Seriously, what the hell does this guy do anyway. First time I said, who the hell is that guy? was at Fastlane with that Watch Along thing they did. Never seen him before on WWE.

P.S. - During WM, I was at a WM "party" , at least a dozen people. When he appearance on screen, half the people in room started laughing. And those were the girls. The guys, were, who's this tool?

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

So many wrong reactions in my eyes to this...

- yes the outfit is ridiculous and I will never consider anyone who wears this as fashionable/cool/hip/whatever

- why does Cole have to yell at him in front of everyone? Pull him to the side real quick and have a quiet chat about your issues and concerns, dont dress him down in front of everyone

- why would you quit over this as Pat said he was ready to do? Why would you not stand up for yourself and tell Cole to "go fuck himself" in front of everyone after he yelled at you in front of everyone...this kind of makes him look weak to me.

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.
