He won’t be there. Nick Khan was recently a guest on The Marchand & Ourand Sports Media Podcast where he discussed a number of topics. Among them was the status of Pat McAfee this weekend at WrestleMania 39.
Khan said the following:
We have no plans to have him there this weekend.
The world is his oyster. He’s 36 years old and look at his relevancy factor when you talk to young children. I have two young children, when I talk to them it’s often, ‘McAfee, McAfee, McAfee.’ That’s what’s in the wheelhouse for them. So, if you look at any of the traditional buyers, what do they want? They want a young diverse audience. What does McAfee bring? He brings a young, diverse audience. You notice he doesn’t get political, extreme, either way. He has Aaron Rodgers on, he treats him respectfully, develops that relationship, he becomes the go-to home of Aaron Rodgers. You see that with more athletes and Pat. He’s not looking to annihilate anybody or crucify them, he’s looking to have good content and his content has been terrific. So, he’ll determine, ultimately, where he wants his home to be and our hope is that he does more with us.
McAfee tweeted out the following:
A lot of wrestling chatter about me right now..I think about wrestling everyday..that dream isn’t done. My business is currently rather active and exigent…+ baby on the way…timing is everything. I still have MASSIVE plans for my journey to the WWE HOF someday. Believe that.

Well, that sucks. When he was doing commentary with Michael Cole, it was some of the best and most entertaining stuff on television each week. McAfee is a natural entertainer, and I hope to see him back in WWE soon!
