Pat McAfee, in the opinion of many, over delivered in his wrestling debut against Adam Cole at NXT TakeOver XXX.
On the most recent episode of WWE After The Bell, Pat McAfee told Corey Graves he would consider having a match against NXT founding father, Triple H, especially after the way Triple H treated him following McAfee punting Adam Cole and knocking him out cold.
“Triple H pushed me pretty hard at that NXT arena, didn’t he? That first push was like, ‘Okay. He’s trying to back me up.’ The second push was like, ‘excuse me, pal.’ We’ve had conversations since then, obviously, to handle the business of the match and everything, but I’m thinking deep down inside there whenever he was pushing me, there was a little bit of a thought of, ‘if this guy falls down on his ass, I’m completely okay with it.’ I don’t know how to feel about that. I don’t know how to feel about that,” said McAfee.
After defeating McAfee at TakeOver, Adam Cole now once again sets his sights on the NXT Championship. He will compete in a 60-Minute Iron Man Fatal 4-Way against Finn Balor, Johnny Gargano, and Tommaso Ciampa on a special Tuesday edition of NXT. That monumental match will go down on September 1st.
