SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Happy Corbin has publicly responded to Pat McAfee’s Summerslam challenge, but did not accept the match that McAfee proposed. In a video post on social media, Corbin ran down McAfee for calling him out this week on Smackdown when he wasn’t in the building and then asked him whether or not he’d say the same things if they were face to face.
“I’m in Kansas City and you knew that,” Corbin said. “You’re in Austin, in your safe place, standing behind your desk, standing on your desk, sitting in your chair, running your mouth. That’s what you do, though. You knew I wasn’t going to be in Austin, so you’re flapping your gums and putting my name in your mouth. Well Pat, let’s see how tough you really are when we’re standing face to face, punk.”
