Former NXT champ Adam Cole has been a trending topic since Thursday night when he suddenly became enraged and stormed out of an interview with Pat McAfee.
It all went down on the Pat McAfee Show on Thursday where Adam was a guest and things got intense after Pat says Cole is nowhere near HBK when it comes to people comparing them.
Pat says he wasn’t trying to offend since Adam looked annoyed, to which the WWE star replies, “You can say you’re not trying to offend me, but it is offensive what you are saying.” McAfee continues to poke at Cole until it gets way too much for him.
“I know that you’re just trying to do your job and that’s fine. I took some time out of visiting my family to come and do your show, but you’re being a total dick right now,” Cole says back.
“And I find it so ironic, that of all people to say that I surrounded myself with really great talent and that’s the reason I succeeded, of all people you? What, a punter? You being on a team that literally did everything,” he continues. “You just happened to kick a football every now and then. And all of a sudden you feel like you’re really, really important. Of all people to say that to me. That I surround myself with super talented people and that’s the only reason that I was successful. You’re a psycho.”
McAfee responds by saying he was the player of the decade in his position in the NFL while pointing out that Cole retained his title many times due to interference from the UE and calls the wrestler “kind of small.”
This set Cole off causing him to shove the microphone to the ground. He then gets up and says, “Fuck you, Pat! Seriously. I’m sick of your shit! I come all the way here. Take time away from my family to come to do your stupid fucking show and you’re going to continue to disrespect me!”
The blowup starts around 2 hours and 7 minutes into the show:
