Adam Cole vs. Pat McAfee is nearly official for the WWE NXT TakeOver: XXX event.
During Wednesday’s episode of NXT, McAfee made an appearance by doing commentary for the last 30 minutes of the show that included NXT Tag Team Champions Marcel Barthel and Fabian Aichner vs. Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish.
In the match, Cole and McAfee exchanged more words that led to Cole throwing water in the face of the former NFL punter. Eventually, they had to be separated, but McAfee ended up landing a punt kick to the face of Cole to “knock him out.”
This comes after the confrontation between Cole and McAfee on The Pat McAfee Show.
On Thursday, Triple H made an appearance on ESPN’s Get Up show where he talked about how McAfee always wanted to be a WWE star and now he’s giving him the chance to fulfill that dream. Triple H challenged McAfee to wrestle Cole in a match at this show. Now, McAfee has to accept the contest.
A lot just happened
