Reason for Pat McAfee's Absence from WWE RAW

Reason for Pat McAfee’s Absence from WWE RAW – As noted, Pat McAfee missed the June 24 episode of WWE Raw, and the show opened with Michael Cole and The Miz welcoming fans at the commentary table instead of McAfee.

A family emergency is reportedly the reason for Pat McAfee’s absence. Despite the episode being held in Indianapolis, where McAfee resides and broadcasts The Pat McAfee Show, he wasn’t present on commentary. The Miz temporarily filled in for him, while Michael Cole handled the rest of the commentary solo.

PWTorch reported that McAfee missed Raw “due to a legitimate last-second family emergency.” McAfee has not publicly addressed the reason for his absence yet.

Speculation arose that, in storyline, the Wyatt Sicks might have been responsible for McAfee’s absence, following disruptions on The Pat McAfee Show caused by the group. However, Michael Cole downplayed this speculation at the start of Raw, stating, “My normal broadcast colleague Pat McAfee, not here tonight. I’m not going to read too much into that.”

Whether McAfee’s absence will be integrated into the Wyatt Sicks storyline remains uncertain. During the episode, a mysterious box containing a VHS tape was delivered to the commentary desk, featuring Bo Dallas/Uncle Howdy discussing Bray Wyatt’s death.

After his stint on commentary, The Miz participated in the main event, where he and R-Truth lost the World Tag Team titles to Judgment Day’s Finn Balor and JD McDonagh.

Earlier in the day, McAfee had hosted Paul “Triple H” Levesque on The Pat McAfee Show, where they discussed WWE’s new deal with Indiana Sports Corp to bring Royal Rumble 2025 and future WrestleMania and SummerSlam events to Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
