Pat McAfee took his revenge at SummerSlam

During the runup to SummerSlam, as the rivalry was simmering, Corbin struck McAfee with a low blow. The wrestler decided to take revenge in kind during SummerSlam.

“But when I saw that beautiful blonde hair flop after I delivered that right on Corbin’s jaw and he knocked him out of the way. I saw an opportunity to maybe bend the rules a little bit. Cuz it’s only illegal or whatever against the rules if you get caught. And there’s no way Charles gonna be able to see it,” said McAfee during the backstage interview.

Charles Robinson was the referee during the match. And who doesn’t like Robinson? Even McAfee does.

“I think there was a chance to really take advantage of Charles. The ref, who’s been a legend, I’ve been watching him since I was a kid. So having him officiate a match I was in, especially against a guy who used to be my friend, was a dream come true in its own right.”
