Pat McAfee made his WrestleMania debut Sunday night, describing it as “a dream come true”.
The former WVU kicker-turned-sports personality stole the show at the second night of the event in Arlington, Texas.
McAfee signed with WWE in 2019 as part of the media crew, stating it had been a lifelong dream. Last night, in front of 78,000 fans, McAfee got to live out his dream in the ring.
“Last night was a dream come true,” said McAfee. “Last night I had the time of my life.”
As a lifelong fan of professional wrestling, McAfee always envisioned what this moment would feel like.
“I’ve come through the curtain in my head probably ten million times. There was a time in my life where every time I walked through a door I acted as if I was walking into an arena full of people,” said McAfee. “You think about this moment forever.”
Twitter couldn’t get enough of McAfee’s debut, praising him for his performance.
McAfee expressed his gratitude for the WWE and his supporters during his show Monday afternoon.
“The fans that were in the stadium… thank you,” said McAfee. “I’m very, very thankful for the WWE universe yesterday in there.”
