Speaking on The Pat McAfee Show (per Fightful), WWE Raw announced Pat McAfee gave his thoughts on The Rock replacing Cody Rhodes in facing Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40.

The match is expected to be made official this Thursday at the WrestleMania Kickoff event. Here are the highlights:

On the fan reaction to the change: “Wrestling fans are incredibly pissed off that Cody Rhodes was supposed to get the job done, finally. There is a title, the one that Roman Reigns has, that Dusty Rhodes was handed in Madison Square Garden and then taken away. Everything Cody has been doing, he’s been trying to get the title back into his family, seemingly going to have to wait another few months while The Rock, the biggest star in the world, the biggest star on planet earth will be taking on his cousin Roman Reigns for the Head of the Table conversation, which has been chatted about forever. I love Cody Rhodes, I love The Rock, I love Roman Reigns. I’m very torn on this entire thing. The internet was not happy.”

On not knowing anything: “I’m bummed out, I still don’t know what’s going to take place between now and WrestleMania. We’re all pretty bummed out for Cody, but also very pumped this is a Rock-Roman situation. I don’t know what’s going to happen. Obviously, in WWE, you can never know what’s going to take place. Certainly got people pissed off on a Friday.”
