Pat McAfee Annoys WWE Star Over ‘Fake’ Win

Pat McAfee Annoys WWE Star Over ‘Fake’ Win WWE

Michael Cole continues to use his social media to specifically chronicle the weekly happenings between Pat McAfee and WWE stars.

Namely, Pat McAfee seemingly consistently being cornered by GUNTHER and forced to explain himself for his comments!

Taking to Twitter, Michael Cole wrote alongside a photo of the pair:

“So @PatMcAfeeShow called @Gunther_AUT a “fake” king because of the controversial ending on Saturday.. the King of the ring overheard him and wasn’t pleased.

“Now Kiss Ass Pat is trying to talk his way out of it #ChopCity #WWERaw”

There was controversy attached to the final moments of the King of the Ring tournament as the pinfall that won GUNTHER the match, in theory, shouldn’t have counted.

His opponent Randy Orton clearly had one shoulder still elevated off the canvas, leading to a debate as to whether that was planned or not.

In the end however, Triple H made a statement noting that while there was clearly a gap between Orton’s one shoulder and the mat, the referee’s decision stands.

GUNTHER remains the 2024 King of the Ring, despite what McAfee says.

Also confirmed by Triple H over the weekend, the winner of both the King and Queen of the Ring would go on to get world championship matches at SummerSlam.

GUNTHER has made his intention for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship clear however what is not clear is who will be champ by the time SummerSlam rolls around.

There are two premium live events between now and SummerSlam including the Clash at the Castle on June 15 in Glasgow, Scotland – which sees Damian Priest defend against Drew McIntyre – and Money in the Bank on July 6 in Toronto.
