WWE is always looking to add more talent and it seems they are adding another one to the company. WWE has had great success with some superstars making a transition from other sports. The Rock is arguably the biggest superstar in all of sports entertainment and he came from football. Ronda Rousey came from UFC and is doing well in WWE.
Former NFL player Pat McAfee has signed a multi-year contract with WWE to talk on kickoff show panels and other digital content for WWE. Here is what McAfee said on his podcast recently.
“WWE has formally offered me a multi-year contract. Who knows what we’re going to be doing over there, they just want me to come make some content. And we’ll see where it goes.”
While it seems Pat will not be wrestling, he will still be a notable name in the company. Perhaps this is all due to WWE moving to Fox Sports. We will have to wait and see what happens.
