Pat McAfee not expected back on WWE commentary for the “foreseeable” future

During an interview with The Daily Star, Wade Barrett addressed his status as a WWE commentator on Smackdown…

“It’s as permanent as you can ever be in a role in WWE! Historically things have always been switched around and teams have been moved from here to there, and I’m not saying I’m going to be in the SmackDown hot seat for the next ten years or anything like that. But in terms of the foreseeable, it’s going to be me and [Michael] Cole going forward. Pat McAfee is always going to be a friend of WWE. He’s an incredibly talented guy and we’re all fans of his, too, but he has a lot on his plate.”

McAfee recently questioned his future with WWE and other ventures.
