According to Dave Meltzer, Pat McAfee has been withdrawn from WWE TV. Wrestling Observer Newsletter. According to Meltzer, this is WWE’s decision, not McAffee’s decision. I don’t know why WWE decided to pull him.
According to reports, he has no timetable for his return, although someone pointed out that the impression is this spring.
McAfee only wrestled twice in NXT, but his performance was well received. Steve Austin appeared on ESPN’s “Monday Tailgate” show last week and praised McAfee’s work.
“Hi, man, [McAfee] Austin said, “He went all out. You know, basically I think his language skills-he is lying to everyone. But he is not afraid to go there and put everything on the line, so you know, you don’t I would expect people who play football to be like that. But Pat McAfee̵
CM Punk also recently praised McAfee, saying that he is better than anyone in WWE.
“A lot of situations are related to the situation, but everyone in the show should feel embarrassed, and then USE said it feels better because @PatMcAfeeShow is better than everyone in the show.),” Punk tweeted. “The reason why he is fully committed to wrestling is zero. He is already the best in the game, not @RheaRipley_WWE.”
Last year, in an interview with Wrestling Inc., McAfee discussed how he trained professional wrestling during the NFL.
McAfee said: “I bought a wrestling ring in the third or fourth year of the league. I wore it in the barn and it was of no use except for the children of my friends who wanted to get in at the party.” “Once I retire, a guy named Rip Rogers used to train at OVW and lived 10 minutes away from my home. He would talk to me about rasslin. He would train me 3-4 times a week. I stayed healthy to see if I was willing to do it and if I could do it. I was kicked and chopped to pieces with bruises on my chest, but I was blown to death.”
McAfee wrestled in “Acquisition: WarGames 2020” last month. McAfee teamed up with Pete Dunne, Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch and lost to Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly, Roderick Strong and Bobby Fish in the WarGames competition.
