Pat McAfee is one of the best promo-cutters in NXT right now. Although he’s still green, wrestlers such as CM Punk and Stone Cold Steve Austin have liked his work a lot.
Recently, Wrestling Observer Newsletter‘s Dave Meltzer reported that McAfee isn’t going to return to NXT until spring next year. It is WWE’s decision to keep him off the television and the reason is unknown at the moment.
“We’re told McAfee will be off TV for a while. It was WWE’s call, not his. No exact time frame was said, but we’re told he was given the impression it’ll be the spring.”
The former NFL punter faced Adam Cole at NXT TakeOver: XXX in a match that delivered way beyond what fans expected from it.
The match was so good that WWE later booked a program where Pat led The Kings of NXT against The Undisputed Era at WarGames 2020.
