Corey Graves has given praise to a surprise name in the Royal Rumble.

The surprises at the 2024 Royal Rumble started early when Pat McAfee made his way to ringside to call the action alongside Michael Cole and Corey Graves.

While Cole knew his favorite announcing colleague would be part of the show, he neglected to tell Graves, who was less than impressed with the news and traded barbs with McAfee throughout the night.

However, the star has now broken character on social media to give his true feelings on McAfee for one time only and explained how much fun he brings to the broadcast.

“I will admit this publicly once and only once.

Nobody has more fun when @PatMcAfeeShow is on the other side of the desk than I do.

What a night.


Pat McAfee Not Told He Would Enter WWE Royal Rumble

One of the biggest surprises of the night came when Pat McAfee’s music hit during the Men’s Royal Rumble match. The star was entrant number 22, but even McAfee didn’t know it was coming.

Despite it being unexpected, McAfee still put down his headset and made his way to the ring, where he was met with stares from Bron Breakker and Omos. Seeing the giants in the ring, McAfee still got in, but he immediately had second thoughts and eliminated himself by climbing out over the top rope and returning to the announce desk.

In an interview after the show, McAfee joked that he had decided to be a coward for the night rather than face the two monsters in the ring.
