He was asked about his preferred opponent if McAfee had one more chance to step inside the ring. According to Pat McAfee, he would like to battle Triple H if he steps inside the ring again.

“You know. Triple H pushed me pretty hard at that NXT arena, didn’t he? He did, didn’t he? That first push was like, ‘Okay. He’s trying to back me up.’ The second push was like, ‘Excuse me pal.’ We’ve had conversations since then, obviously, to handle the business of the match [against Cole], but I’m thinking deep down inside there whenever he was pushing me, there must have been a thought of, ‘If this guy falls down on his a**, I’m completely okay with it.’ I don’t know how to feel about that. I don’t know how to feel about that.”
