Pat McAfee to address Adam Cole confrontation on WWE NXT


After an angle that was shot on his radio show last month, Pat McAfee will appear on NXT tonight and continue his storyline with Adam Cole.

WWE announced this afternoon that McAfee will be on tonight's episode of NXT to address his confrontation with 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

The confrontation between McAfee and Cole from McAfee's radio show was recapped via a video that aired on NXT last week. McAfee, a sports media personality and former All-Pro punter for the Indianapolis Colts, officially began working as a contributor for WWE in 2019.

Cole lost the NXT Championship to Keith Lee at Great American Bash night two in July. On last week's NXT, Cole and the rest of Undisputed Era attacked Imperium's Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner after Barthel & Aichner defeated Ever-Rise. Undisputed Era's Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish are challenging for Barthel & Aichner's NXT Tag Team titles tonight.

Here's the full list of what's been announced for tonight's NXT:

  • Pat McAfee addresses Adam Cole confrontation
  • NXT Champion Keith Lee vs. Cameron Grimes in a non-title match
  • NXT Tag Team Champions Imperium (Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner) defending against Undisputed Era (Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish)
