Pat McAfee was pulled from WWE NXT television. This was not his call, but the black and gold brand will have to go without McAfee for now. This is not something he’s too happy about either.

The former NFL player also received veiled offer to join Retribution. Let’s see if he takes Mace up on that invitation.

McAfee previously tweeted out about getting fired on Christmas. He wasn’t too happy rehashing the subject on The Pat McAfee show recently.

“Hey Benny Butz, get off my ass, dude. I tried to get some sun, son, but Indiana doesn’t have any for like five or six months, what do you want from me? I’m super caucasian, I become red easily. I have a tanning bed in my house, but I got third-degree burns from the first time I laid on it. My entire body looked like a goddamn zebra for six months. I can’t use it, so I use the spray tan. My first match, NXT TakeOver 30 against Adam Cole, I made some rookie mistakes and I should have been undefeated after that match. Maybe I got too dark of a spray tan. I didn’t go to my spray tan machine, I went to another one down in Florida and maybe that one was cooked a little too much. Maybe, when I was sweating, it was falling onto the canvas. Maybe everything that guy is saying is close to accurate, but that doesn’t mean I should have to read on the internet, all day Christmas, that NXT has just written me off of television for the rest of my life. F*ck you, Benny Butz!”


Pat McAfee has a lot of in-ring talent, and plenty of skills to spare on the microphone. Odds are he will be back in NXT eventually, but his abilities could also catch the interest of the WWE main roster eventually.
