Pat McAfee has issued a challenge to Happy Corbin to face him at WWE SummerSlam on July 30. 

McAfee made the challenge on this week's SmackDown episode, playing off an angle shot on the prior week's episode where Corbin and McAfee had a verbal confrontation, and McAfee led the crowd in laughing Corbin out of the arena. 

Michael Cole stated during SmackDown that Corbin will respond to McAfee's challenge on next week's episode. 

McAfee has wrestled a total of four matches for WWE, including two on the same night at WrestleMania 38 this year. McAfee made his WWE in-ring debut in NXT in 2020, wrestling twice for the company that year. 

McAfee's WWE in-ring debut came in NXT with a singles match against Adam Cole at TakeOver: XXX, and he followed up by competing in the WarGames match at TakeOver: WarGames.

At WrestleMania this year, McAfee defeated Austin Theory, then lost to Vince McMahon in an impromptu match immediately after the Theory bout. 

SummerSlam takes place on Saturday, July 30 at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee. 

Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar in a Last Man Standing match for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship is the only match officially announced for the event to this point.
