In a recent tweet, McAfee gave Cole a “legit contract offer” to be the assistant of Ty Schmit and Bost0n Connor. Schmit and Connor are two hosts of the Pat McAfee Show. The analyst also added that Cole will receive, “$22,000 a year. No benefits but you’ll be able to build your resumé.”

Schmit cheekily replied, “Hey Cole, I just clogged the toilet.. going to need you to go snake that thing with your bare hands.” Even Adam himself replied with,I’ll think about it… I’m kidding… I hate you.” To this, Schmit called Cole a moron.

Adam Cole issued a public apology, and later Triple H tried to mend the rift between the two. However, Cole continued to ridicule McAfee, which ultimately led to a match at NXT TakeOver XXX.

Despite losing the match at TakeOver XXX, McAfee continued attacking the Undisputed Era and Cole. NXT General Manager William Regal sanctioned a War Games match between The Undisputed Era and Team McAfee. This time McAfee lost again after Kyle O’Reilly from Undisputed Era pinned Oney Lorcan from Team McAfee.
