WWE WrestleMania Backlash: Fans left baffled by strange Pat McAfee commentary line

Pat McAfee WWE The Fiend

The main event to WWE WrestleMania Backlash saw Roman Reigns and The Usos beat Randy Orton, Riddle and Drew McIntyre.

Many fans expected Drew McIntyre’s team to win, setting up a title match with Roman Reigns down the line, but it was the ‘Tribal Chief’ that led his team to victory.

However, during the match, fans noticed a strange line on commentary from Pat McAfee that had nothing to do with what was happening in the ring.

With the wrestlers on the outside, McAfee said “is that The Fiend in the front row?”, which really caught the attention of those watching at home.

McAfee said that he said because someone, who was dressed like The Fiend, was caught on camera by people watching at home.

The fan, who you can see at a closer angle below, does look a lot like he’s cosplaying as the former WWE Champion.

The line caught many people off guard, due to the sheer random nature of it, and the fact it wasn’t planned by WWE.

It’s not like someone was put in the front row by WWE, at least as far as we know, and it’s likely that the fan just did this off their own back.

The line added nothing to match, despite being utterly hilarious, especially considering Wyatt no longer works for WWE, having been released last year.

The reaction to the line has been interesting, especially as Wyatt begun trending on Twitter after McAfee’s commentary spot.

As you can see above, some have speculated that the line could be leading towards a Wyatt return to WWE, but at this stage, that seems highly unlikely.
