Pat McAfee is Training to Become top of the WWE Pile


When WWE announced that Pat McAfee would be stepping between the ropes to take on Adam Cole at NXT TakeOver XXX, expectations for the former football player’s chances against a pro wrestling great were far from high. Talking exclusively to Muscle & Fitness back in August, Cole told us of his disdain for McAfee, predicting an easy win against a man who at that time had no previous match experience in WWE.

While Cole made good on his promise to defeat the former NFL placekicker, it was far from the easy win he’d promised and during his scintillating WWE debut, it became clear that McAfee was taking pro wrestling seriously. Not only did the former 8-year veteran with the Indiana Colts turn up in great shape, but in a major surprise that fans are still talking about many months later, McAfee flew around the ring like an established WWE superstar.

It’s widely understood that, barring a few exceptions like Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey, few athletes make a quick transition from other sports to the larger than life world of WWE. Years of training are required to master the timing, moves, and charisma required to become a pro wrestling star and yet the 33-year-old from Plum, PA has wowed critics from the first moment he set foot in the ring. Pat also brought the same passion to the steel cage where he came breathtakingly close to picking up his first victory at NXT TakeOver: WarGames.

Teaming with Pete Dunne, Danny Burch, and Oney Lorcan, pro wrestling’s hottest new prospect took it to all four members of The Undisputed Era in a wild affair that saw our man performing a death-defying moonsault that sent Roderick Strong crashing through a table. As if that was not enough, he then took out the entire opposing team with a flying senton from the very top of the WarGames structure. Muscle & Fitness sat down for an exclusive interview with one of WWE’s most talked about characters to get the lowdown on his progress so far.

    May I simply say what a relief to discover a person that truly understands what they are talking about on the internet. You certainly realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you are not more popular given that you definitely have the gift. Kasey Walther Meta

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone! Tatiania Bruno Danell
