It was previously reported that 76 year-old Vince McMahon is expected to be involved in a storyline with Smackdown announcer Pat McAfee leading up to Wrestlemania 38 and there will “most likely” be a match.
Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com confirmed that McMahon vs. McAfee is listed on the internal schedule for Wrestlemania and McMahon’s upcoming appearance on The Pat McAfee Show will be an angle to set up the match. Meltzer added that “while he [Vince] will be advertised for a match, we’re told it will be complete smoke and mirrors event.”
If Vince officially has a match, it will be his first one since he competed against CM Punk during an episode of WWE RAW in 2012. WWE still has around 20,000 unsold tickets available for each night of Wrestlemania and that is why the company is reportedly looking to utilize as many big names for the event as possible.
As of last night, Vince McMahon vs. Pat McAfee was listed as a match on the internal schedule for WrestleMania.
