Just weeks ahead of Wrestlemania 38 in Arlington, TX, WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon will do a live interview this afternoon when he appears live in studio on the Pat McAfee Show. He is set to appear on the show shortly and will have up-and-coming WWE superstar Austin Theory with him.
It’s rare for the longtime sports entertainment mogul to do these type of interviews but it makes sense considering the growing partnership between McAfee and the WWE. The retired NFL punter has been a mainstay on WWE television for the past few years, currently serving on the Friday Night Smackdown announce team along with Michael Cole. He has used his very podcast to advance storylines storylines in the past, getting into an altercation with Adam Cole in July of 2020 which led to a match at NXT Takeover XXX. The presence of Theory probably indicates something being set up for Wrestlemania.
We’ll provide live updates from the interview. You can stream the interview via Pat McAfee’s YouTube channel below.
