Pat McAfee has publicly apologized to Aaron Rodgers for any controversies that may have arisen due to the quarterback’s appearances on “The Pat McAfee Show.” McAfee expressed his gratitude and apologized for any negative consequences that may have resulted from the platform’s discussions, specifically mentioning the recent “darkness retreat” conversations. Rodgers told McAfee he used psychedelic tea.
McAfee’s apology came after reports emerged that some individuals within the league or team believe Rodgers may be more trouble than he’s worth, ahead of his upcoming four-day retreat. In response to McAfee’s apology, Rodgers acknowledged the hot water they had gotten themselves into but also appreciated the opportunity to speak candidly on the show.
It is possible that Rodgers’ discussion of his use of psychedelic tea during the offseason may have contributed to the controversies surrounding his appearances on “The Pat McAfee Show.”
The former NFL star joked that even though the nonsanctioned showdown received this poor accolade, it is a night he’ll remember for the rest of his life. McAfee adds that you should “never trust a rattlesnake,” a reference to Steve Austin giving him a stunner after he helped him fight McMahon off.
Pat McAfee took a break from his role at the company last year to host College GameDay. Prior to his departure, he concluded his feud with Happy Corbin by defeating him at SummerSlam 2022 on the blue brand. Fans have been eagerly waiting for his return, and according to Wade Barrett, McAfee remains a friend of WWE. Barrett, who shed light on his role as a commentator, mentioned that while things can always change in WWE, his position is currently as permanent as it can be. Barrett also stated that McAfee is a busy man but is expected to return in various roles in the foreseeable future. However, for now, he will not be taking over the SmackDown hot seat.
