Pat McAfee WWE Return Date Revealed WWE

We now know when we can expect Pat McAfee to make his return to WWE after his departure for College GameDay.

McAfee served as an announcer for SmackDown alongside Michael Cole from April 2021 until September 2022 when he left for the College GameDay role and was replaced by Corey Graves.

The Cole & Graves team on SmackDown ended up only lasting a month, as WWE announced a major shakeup to its announce teams on October 6.

The new teams, starting with tonight’s October 7 SmackDown, are:

  • Raw – Kevin Patrick & Corey Graves
  • SmackDown – Michael Cole & Wade Barrett
  • NXT – Vic Joseph & Booker T

Of course, McAfee is still absent because the football season is still going on, but according to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, he is set to return to the SmackDown position in January.

The Observer says McAfee will “rejoin the team”, although it isn’t clear whether this would make the SmackDown team a three-man team, or whether his return will actually lead to another set of changes.

We’ll keep you updated, but the good news is that we know Pat McAfee will be coming back in just a few months’ time.
