Pat McAfee announced that he is an official WWE employee. “I can officially say I’m a @WWE employee,” McAfee wrote on Twitter. “A real lifelong dream coming true thanks to @MichaelCole and @TripleH.. This opportunity means the world to me.”
Powell’s POV: McAfee has been working as a panelist on the NXT pre-shows. There’s no word on whether his role will expand beyond that. McAfee is the former punter of the Indianapolis Colts. He also worked as a color commentator for an NFL and college football game last year.
