Pat McAfee Defends Eliminating Himself From 2024 Men’s Royal Rumble Match



Pat McAfee has justified his abrupt exit from the 2024 men’s Royal Rumble match that saw the broadcaster eliminate himself.

McAfee, who was also on commentary, was the #22 entrant in the match but eliminated himself rather than face Omos.

Speaking after the match, McAfee argued his reasoning for eliminating himself made perfect sense. He said,

“All of a sudden, 22 up and I’m in the Royal Rumble, nobody gave me the heads up about that. I got my cowboy boots on. Michael Cole let me go in there, that was rude of him I thought we were friends. Then there was a thing in there, 7’3” it was like looking up at a statue of a being. I see little Bron Breaker barking at me, I’m like I’m not supposed to be here right now, I’m not prepared for this.

“Also, who would I be to take a main event spot at WrestleMania spot from somebody? I got my ass out there. Now I went back in thinking ‘Wait a minute, am I just gonna be a coward?’ Then I realized quickly, yeah I am.”

The 2024 men’s Royal Rumble match was won by Cody Rhodes who became the first man since 1998 to win back-to-back Royal Rumble matches.
