Report: Vince McMahon expected to launch WWE WrestleMania 38 program with Pat McAfee

The program could "most likely" lead to a match at WrestleMania 38.

A new report indicates that a program between Vince McMahon and Pat McAfee for WrestleMania 38 is expected to be launched.

Post Wrestling reported tonight that the two will start a program which will include WrestleMania 38. When asking their source if their involvement at the show was going to be billed as an official match, Post Wrestling was told “most likely”.

It was announced on tonight’s SmackDown that McMahon would be appearing live on the Pat McAfee show on YouTube this Thursday at noon eastern. It will be his first live interview since his interview with Stone Cold Steve Austin back in 2014.

McMahon, 76, last had a match at WrestleMania XXVI in 2010, where he lost to Bret Hart in a no holds barred match. He also engaged in a brawl with CM Punk in 2012 and took a headbutt from Kevin Owens in 2017.

McAfee originally started as an announcer for NXT, and later had a match with Adam Cole at NXT TakeOver XXX in August of 2020, with Cole getting the win. That was followed by a WarGames match, with The Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Bobby Fish, Kyle O’Reilly, and Roderick Strong) defeating Pat McAfee, Pete Dunne, Oney Lorcan, and Danny Burch. Last April, McAfee moved to the SmackDown brand, where he became a color commentator alongside Michael Cole.
