WWE: Former NFL Punter Pat McAfee to Face Adam Cole at 'NXT TakeOver: XXX'

Former Indianapolis Colts punter and current sports analyst Pat McAfee is about to get into the ring with one of the best wrestlers in the world. On Saturday, Aug. 22, McAfee will face Adam Cole in a match at NXT TakeOver: XXX. Triple H laid down the challenge on ESPN's Get Up and both seen ready to do battle.

"Let me make this crystal clear for everyone, especially you @PatMcAfeeShow ...Hunter is the one who can make this match happen, but I will be the one kicking your a— at #TakeOverXXX...if you’re as bad as you think you are, accept. I dare you," Cole wrote on Twitter. McAfee saw Triple H lay down the challenge and accepted very quickly on Twitter.

The question is why is the match happening? It started when Cole appeared on The Pat McAfee Show last month and the former NXT Champion cursed out McAfee when after being called small. McAfee then appeared on NXT this week to iron things out with Cole. Everything seemed okay until McAfee called Cole small again towards the end of the show. It led to them going after each other and ended with McAfee kicking Cole in the head.
