NXT TakeOver: XXX is set for SummerSlam weekend and Pat McAfee will get a match that he’s always wanted. Adam Cole is his opponent and the former NXT Champion doesn’t plan on taking it easy on the former NFL punter.
McAfee and Cole have thrown little jabs at each other in the past. Pat McAfee sometimes fills in for NXT commentary and a lot of fans have wondered if he’ll be back.
During WWE The Bump, Adam Cole was asked if he would have any problem with Pat McAfee returning to NXT commentary following NXT TakeOver: XXX. He said that as long as McAfee doesn’t try to drag him then they shouldn’t have any issues.
“I think as long as Pat keeps my name out of his mouth and stays out of my business I don’t think I’m going to have any problems with Pat McAfee whatsoever. I think after TakeOver: XXX and Pat hypothetically decides to come back to NXT if he’s not too embarrassed I think Pat will be very aware and know very clearly to not bring my name up in a negative light ever again, so I don’t think I’ll have a problem with it.”
Pat McAfee previously stated that he doesn’t plan on being terrible in the ring like Tyson Fury or “those Saturday Night Live guys.” We’ll have to see what he has in store. Cole didn’t take anything away from McAfee’s athletic ability, but Pat McAfee still isn’t a pro wrestler.
NXT TakeOver: XXX will be live this Saturday. We will have full coverage right here at Ringside News. It could be an exciting night for pro wrestling, and a busy one as well. Adam Cole is obviously anticipating an embarrassing moment for Pat McAfee.
