Former Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee made his WWE debut over the weekend in a match against Adam Cole at NXT TakeOver: XXX.
Cole went over by pinfall after hitting a Panama Sunrise. To the surprise of many, McAfee held his own and looked really good in doing it. McAfee detailed the whole experience in a lengthy piece by ESPN, where he explained he has no further WWE commitments binding.
“And then I got to Sunday, obviously, and I woke up. Neck was sore, back was sore, foot was sore. I got flipped on my head,” McAfee said on how he felt after the match “To be completely honest, I’m not 100% sure what’s going to happen. I’m not under contract to do anything else with Mr. H. I assume he and I will talk about this at some point because I heard his comments in the press conference afterward, which were very nice.”
“But for me, all I was worried about was that match at NXT TakeOver: XXX and then I’ll let everything else kind of sort itself out. And I think that’s where I’m at right now. I feel good. If I never get in the ring again, I’ll be very thankful for the opportunity and I’ll be proud of it. If something pops up and it’s right and my wife doesn’t mind, because I did miss some of the honeymoon for this whole thing and she’s been incredibly cool. There’s a lot that goes into it. To be honest, I just started thinking about it within the last 24 hours, and have no idea what the future holds.”
