Adam Cole and Pat McAfee have been going at it quite a bit over the past few weeks, though it all came to a head during last week's NXT, in which McAfee kicked Cole in the face, knocking him out. That prompted Cole to call him out during tonight's episode, and that was after also calling him out on soial media, and it seems Cole's goading worked, as McAfee has accepted Cole's challenge and will now face the former NXT Champion at TakeOver XXX. McAfee couldn't just respond in typical fashion though, and you can see below he had some fun with the comeback.
McAfee posted a GIF of Cole with his face over top of Cole's, and from his words, he isn't scared of Cole in the least.
"You want me back in that #WWENXT arena next Wednesday
I’d love to.. The last time I was there, you ended up lifeless on the ground w/ @ShawnMichaels worried about your soulless, dumb, stupid body.
Can’t wait to dominate you and the whole wrestling community..AGAIN pic.twitter.com/JctoAABLrA— Pat McAfee (@PatMcAfeeShow) August 13, 2020

Now, to be fair, Cole wasn't expecting that kick from McAfee, so things could very well play out differently with both sides prepared during an actual match. Still, McAfee has no fear, so this match could end up being pretty bonkers once all is said and done.
