Rodgers is still going strong on the field. But after a time, the Super Bowl MVP (LVI) will also have to think about retirement, just like so many greats did before him.

However, Aaron Rodgers might follow in Pat McAfee’s footsteps after his football retirement. Pat McAfee is a former football punter and also a good friend of Aaron Rodgers.

But a few years back, McAfee retired. Now, he is currently signed to WWE where he does commentary during WWE SmackDown.

Apart from doing commentary, Pat McAfee has also competed in matches. And there were also plans of Aaron Rodgers joining McAfee in WWE back in 2020.

According to Sports Illustrated, following McAfee’s performance at NXT TakeOver: WarGames in 2020, there was an internal discussion about bringing back McAfee for more action.

The idea for Pat McAfee was to jump Adam Cole by aligning himself with his good friend and Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers.

Though that did not take place in reality, one might wonder whether WWE would once again try to get Aaron Rodgers in WWE following his retirement.
