Pat McAfee Addresses Criticism Of The Rock Taking Cody Rhodes’ WrestleMania Spot

Pat McAfee addressed the ongoing controversy regarding the fan reaction to The Rock returning to WWE to replace Cody Rhodes against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40.

The new WWE Monday Night Raw color-commentator brought up the topic on the latest installment of his “Pat McAfee Show” program.

“Wrestling fans are incredibly pissed off that Cody Rhodes was supposed to get the job done, finally,” he began. “There is a title, the one that Roman Reigns has, that Dusty Rhodes was handed in Madison Square Garden and then taken away. Everything Cody has been doing, he’s been trying to get the title back into his family, seemingly going to have to wait another few months while The Rock, the biggest star in the world, the biggest star on planet earth will be taking on his cousin Roman Reigns for the Head of the Table conversation, which has been chatted about forever. I love Cody Rhodes, I love The Rock, I love Roman Reigns. I’m very torn on this entire thing. The internet was not happy.”

McAfee continued, “I’m bummed out, I still don’t know what’s going to take place between now and WrestleMania. We’re all pretty bummed out for Cody, but also very pumped this is a Rock-Roman situation. I don’t know what’s going to happen. Obviously, in WWE, you can never know what’s going to take place. Certainly got people pissed off on a Friday.”
