Update On Plans For WWE Star Leaving The Company? WWE

Pat McAfee’s career extends far beyond his role in WWE and details of the direction of his future plans may have now been revealed.

With McAfee explaining that, with a baby on the way and the success of his business, he still has plans to be in the WWE Hall of Fame one day, a potential future in ESPN is likely to be a concern.

ESPN are currently in the process of laying off staff, with a New York Post report saying that there will be “no sacred cows”, suggesting that any job could be a risk, regardless of the role.

The cuts, per the New York Post report, are set to be “finalized in the next four to six weeks” with department heads being asked to look for efficiency savings.

The New York Post reported that Pat McAfee “is exploring moving to a network that could have him step away from FanDuel in the midst of a four-year, $120 million contract” and cited ESPN as a possibility despite the current round of job cuts.

McAfee had cast doubt over his own WWE future in the event of the company being sold, suggesting it would depend on who bought the company.

WWE CEO Nick Khan suggested that the sale could talk place in around three months in a recent interview with CBS.

Pat McAfee is one of the subjects in a lawsuit from NFL great Brett Favre over comments made relating to the footballer’s alleged role in a $77m welfare fraud scheme.
