In an episode of The Pat McAfee Show, Pat McAfee discussed the aftermath of the incident in which AJ Styles cut his own on WrestleMania 38 star walking to the ring. McAfee claims that he was warned several times about not allowing the star to approach him after the incident.
McAfee stated that McAfee was walking to the gorilla, which is the last stop before going out.
Four producers said:
When you go out there the bottom of your entrance is like a Star, make sure to get to the middle, it is sharp on one side.
I was like ‘okay.’ But they were like AJ literally ran his face into it. He’s bleeding now.’ I was confused. Thank you very much.
“Then the next producer came ‘hey, when you go out there, there’s a slant. Make sure you get all the way to the middle.’ I’m like, ‘oh yeah, why’s that?’ Like, now I’m gassing. ‘Well AJ Styles just ran his face into it, so we need that not to happen.’ ‘Okay, thank you so much. You saved my life.’ So then I’m walking four more steps, another producer ‘hey, on your entrance, I don’t know if you’ve heard or not.’ ‘Yep, got it. Face thing? Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Wrestlemania 38’s biggest moment was when Jackass cast member Wee Man smashed Sami Zayn with an obscene scoop slam. Pat McAfee wondered if this moment made Wee Man one of the most powerful human beings ever.
Wee Man was standing there for a little bit.
I mean, that wasn’t a quick pick him up, put him down. That was a walking around (slam). Wee Man ate that table a few weeks ago at Four Seasons. Now he’s picking people up. Is he the most, is he, per capita, the strongest pound-for-pound, size-for-size, human of all time?”
One moment that was less memorable was when Rick Boogs sustained a leg injury in the opening match of Wrestlemania 38. Pat McAfee shared his feelings when Boogs was injured.
That was a pretty emotional moment in the back in the trailer or whatever,” McAfee said. “I don’t know what happened there. I think there was a little bit of a, I don’t know. I don’t know what happened. He’s done that like, I don’t know, probably 100 times. It’s a crazy game. Whenever I say that though, I thought to myself, ‘nosh-t, something can happen. Some freak thing can happen out of nowhere.
