“You know, it was a great match. Hell of a show, by the way. My guys and I ended up losing to the bastards that are The Undisputed Era and I’m not happy with that. This collar is only for precautionary reasons at this time. “
McAfee further stated that he injured his hip, back and possibly broken a toe during the game. When it comes to The Undisputed Era, he hinted that they may not be done with them or with NXT.
“We did not fall without a fight. Next time we get our hands on them, they will be the ones wearing the collar! “
Pat McAfee has impressed fans, critics and teammates with his impressive athleticism in both of his WWE matches. Add that to his phenomenal mic skills, and WWE definitely has a special celebrity talent in its back pocket for future events.
