After WWE Money in the Bank went off the air, Happy Corbin attacked Pat McAfee at ringside.
McAfee was down, but he wasn't out as he made his way over to UFC 276 following Money in the Bank to sit next to Triple H, Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, and Nick Khan, albeit sporting a neck brace.
Speaking on The Pat McAfee Show, McAfee detailed the attack and the injuries he suffered as a result.
"Everyone saw my neck brace, that was out of precaution because a scumbag had attacked me immediately following Money in the Bank going off the air on Peacock. Michael Cole and I were just sitting there having our usual nightly wrap-up, 'that was a fucking good night.' Before we can even get our headsets off and get out there, as the entire world was celebrating, some scumbag, by the name of Bum Ass Corbin, literally attacked me from behind the barricade, like a horror film. Drags me over, hits a Fox exec right behind us and a consultant next to him. I actually kicked them both in the whole process of that. Sorry bout it," he said.
McAfee recapped the night including Liv Morgan winning Women's Money in the Bank match and then cashing in to win the WWE SmackDown Women's Championship and Austin Theory winning the Men's Money in the Bank ladder match.
"Out of nowhere, I'm swooped up by a scumbag. I'm out there, losing my bearings, I'm getting wailed on with punches. Throws me over the barricade, hit my head on the side of the commentary table that was blown up by Omos. Got cuts on my head from that thing because there is metal where the bolts go. Still bruised on my head. I'm staggering in there, this big sonofabitch, who is a bum ass, former Gold Gloves boxer, obviously incredibly tough, former teammate of mine, roommate of mine, a man who has become a terrible human, has me by the hand, WITH MY ROLEX! Pulls me in, boom, I'm upside down all of a sudden, holy fuck, right into the ground. Thought I had a T1, T2. My larynx potentially in trouble as well. I'm 240 pounds, when your body is upside down and flipped around right onto your face, there is going to be some bad outcomes. There was a little precautionary there because I could not move my neck after. I was in incredible pain, any budge would hurt like hell. Turns out, no fractures, but I did have a severe case of whiplash, so I will still be rather stiff," said McAfee.
The good news for McAfee is that he will get his match against Corbin at WWE SummerSlam.
"With that being said, Happy Corbin, Bum Ass Corbin, did accept my SummerSlam challenge, so it is on. Once this neck heals, I'm gonna go in and beat that guy's ass. This foot right here is gonna end up, up the ass of Bum Ass Corbin!"
McAfee was without a neck brace on Tuesday's show.
