Pat McAfee loves when he can get a good laugh out of Vince McMahon while he commentates on WWE SmackDown.
During a recent episode of The Pat McAfee Show, McAfee said, unlike countless others who have been in his position in the past, he enjoys having people like Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn in his ear. Stating he knows when he’s done something good when he gets a trademark Vince McMahon laugh inside his headset:
“The internet says a lot of things about a lot of people who’ve probably been around WWE for like 30, 40 years. I guess there’s a lot of pent-up potential stories and happenings that could go through there,” Pat McAfee said. “They’ve been all very nice to me, and I’m very thankful. Other people probably experienced something different. I’m just gonna tell you — Bruce Prichard is f-cking awesome. Kevin Dunn, also awesome he’s in my ear every single show, and by the way, Vince McMahon in my ear? Awesome!
“I don’t ever see him in real life anymore. I just hear him *does a Vince laugh impression.* That’s when I know I’ve really done it, like when I almost got my head ripped off. You know at the end of [SmackDown,] because that thing is clipped to my sport coat and it was wrapped around his foot, so I mean it was like dragging me a little bit I’m like ‘Well I’m not gonna deal with this at all,’ and I go running and I put the other one on as soon as I put the headset back on there is a pretty good [Vince laugh] in my ear.”
Pat McAfee also went in-depth about some of the requests Vince McMahon will ask from him during SmackDown. Such as asking questions on the air or cutting off Michael Cole:
“There’s other things where sometimes I feel like he is in a groove where he’ll just ask me a question in the middle of the show, and he wants me to answer it live, obviously. Then sometimes Cole will be in the middle of something or even a wrestler will be speaking, and he’s like, ‘Cut them off!’ and I want to tell Cole, I think there’s something much better that could be separate. It’s coming from a voice inside of my brain right now, though. I want to let you know it’s awesome. It is amazing. I enjoy the hell out of it.”
