McAfee began appearing on WWE programming as a pre-show analyst for NXT TakeOver events. He was loudly praised for his feud against now AEW star Adam Cole and moved over to the main roster. He’s currently scheduled to face Happy Corbin in a match at SummerSlam. We’ll have to see what’s next, but he’ll be around for years.
