Pat McAfee has been on WWE's payroll for several years now and currently plies his trade behind the announcer's table on SmackDown.

The former NFL star is expected to step into a much bigger role heading into WrestleMania. Both Brad Shepard and Ringside News are now reporting that the commentator could step into a huge storyline that may begin as early as tonight on SmackDown.

WrestleMania is around six weeks away and there are already three official matches for the show, could McAfee's WrestleMania feud become apparent tonight on SmackDown?

McAfee will return to the commentary table for tonight's event after sitting out WWE's trip out to Saudi Arabia last weekend, so it appears to be the perfect time and venue to set up a WrestleMania feud.

Pat McAfee feuded with Adam Cole during his run on WWE NXT

This wouldn't be the first time that McAfee has wrestled, as the former NFL punter was part of a feud with Adam Cole while he was a member of the NXT roster.

McAfee received rave reviews for his in-ring ability and stole the show when he took on Cole at NXT Takeover XXX. The two men were part of a deeply personal feud that saw Cole take the fight to McAfee on commentary several times.

Though there is no news on who McAfee will be paired in the ring against at WrestleMania, it's clear that the star has natural wrestling abilities. The charismatic commentator could steal the show once again if he's allowed to.

McAfee has been outspoken in his opinion throughout his run as a commentator on SmackDown. He could easily rub a star the wrong way tonight in order to spark a feud that could take him all the way to WrestleMania.
