After The Undertaker’s legendary 25-match WrestleMania winning streak, it looks like former NFL punter Pat McAfee is the one taking the baton ahead. McAfee has now won consecutive WrestleMania bouts after his surprise appearance this year. However, he had some aid from his own corner of the sporting world. The NFL sent in an angel to rescue Pat.

San Francisco 49ers tight end and wrestling enthusiast, George Kittle, played a pivotal role in the host of ‘The Pat McAfee Show’ clinching the win against The Miz. Pat described the experience on his show on Monday, still reeling from the exuberant affair at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.

Pat McAfee recounts exhilarating WrestleMania affair

80,497 people witnessed the circus show as the hosts of WrestleMania 39, Snoop Dogg and Michael Gregory Mizanin, also known as The Miz, discussed the possibility of an impromptu matchup between the Miz and former Indianapolis Colts punter and WWE guest commentator, Pat McAfee. It was Snoop’s idea, and The Miz wasn’t on board.

McAfee said that leaving three people high up in the WWE hierarchy, nobody knew of the surprise cameo. Miz was certainly against the idea, even attempting to walk away, inviting taunts from the crowd. However, Pat, who has been a lifelong fan of the wrestler since his X-Factor winning days, was there to do a job.

I’m so thankful to the people at the WWE. And I’m actually a fan of The Miz. I didn’t like that there were over eighty thousand people chanting, ‘Tiny B-lls, Tiny B-lls,” Pat McAfee said. “So I just saw an opportunity. And I enjoyed the opportunity because it was gonna showcase the Miz too. And Snoop Dogg was out there. So it all just kinda came together perfectly,” he added.

George Kittle flattened The Miz before McAfee took his turn

Football players stick together. In that tiny window, when The Miz attempted to walk away from the proposed battle, he encountered George Kittle in the front row as the Niners TE also taunted him for refusing to fight. The Miz wasn’t having it and shoved Kittle back into his seat. And that was that. The 29-year-old NFL star from the Bay Area quickly took off his jacket before pouncing over the guarding fence, pounding his chest, and taking The Miz down with a clothesline demolition.

McAfee, who punted 575 times during his NFL career, made good use of his professional talent and punt-kicked The Miz, winning another WrestleMania matchup. Pat defeated Austin Theory last year before WWE Chairman, Vince McMahon, handed him some pounding.
