The feud kicked off on McAfee’s podcast after the former NFL punter called Cole “kind of small.” McAfee then appeared on an NXT show, mocked Cole for his height again, and punted him into the end zone.
A match was signed for “NXT Takeover XXX” between the pair and McAfee looked solid in a losing effort. McAfee slowly became a recurring antagonist on NXT television, forming the Kings of NXT to feud with Cole’s team, the Undisputed Era.
It's GREAT to be GREAT

The rivalry culminated with a 4-on4 match at last night’s “NXT Takeover: WarGames” with the Undisputed Era coming out on top.
In many ways, McAfee stole the show, performing incredible moves for a guy with limited wrestling training.
Here are a few of McAfee’s insane moments from “NXT Takeover: WarGames” including a Swanton Bomb off the top of the WarGames cage.
