• WWE Announces Interesting Angle For Tonight’s NXT
So there it is: the Adam Cole – Pat McAfee confrontation was a planned angle.
WWE has announced that McAfee will appear on tonight’s NXT to sort things out with the former NXT Champion:
Pat McAfee rolling into NXT tonight to address confrontation with Adam Cole
“Time to talk Bay Bay!
Pat McAfee is ready to clear the air with Adam Cole and is headed to NXT tonight hoping to do exactly that.
The last encounter between McAfee and Adam Cole resulted in a heated exchange and the former NXT Champion shoving one of the radio host’s producers. Triple H joined “The Pat McAfee Show” a couple days later and reiterated Cole’s apology in an attempt to ease tensions between the two.
Now, McAfee will take a mid-honeymoon break to try and relieve some of the drama from his professional life and bury the hatchet with Cole.
Will the former NFL Pro Bowler be able to mend the relationship, or will another war of words break out with the longest-reigning NXT Champion in history?
Catch it all on NXT tonight on USA Network at 8/7 C.”
Just heard some really interesting news. If he is that serious about fixing this, then count me in.
