The feud between Adam Cole and Pat McAfee continues.
Months after their clash at NXT TakeOver XXX and their memorable battle in a WarGames match, the two rivals continue to take shots at each other.
On the latest episode of WWE’s The Bump, Cole called McAfee an “embarrassment” during a conversation about his time on NXT.
“Pat McAfee, again, the fact that he has tricked so many people into working alongside him kind of blows my mind,” said Cole. “That was a really, really big issue for me, but again, my hatred for Pat was so strong that again, it could have been anybody and I was laser-focused on Pat the whole time.”
Cole commented on Pete Dunne’s alliance with McAfee, and when “The BruiserWeight” didn’t respond to a question about it, Cole took another jab at the SmackDown commentator.
“I wouldn’t want to talk about that embarrassment Pat McAfee either, I don’t blame him,” said Cole.

Later the same day, McAfee responded to Cole’s comments. On Wednesday’s episode of “The Pat McAfee Show,” the host invited Cole to WWE Friday Night SmackDown so they could have a face-to-face conversation.
“Hey Adam Cole, pal, hey listen, you’re talking to Mr. Friday Night now,” said McAfee. “Come over to Friday, pal. Alright, you can make the rules, I guess. You’ve just been living around, doing whatever you gotta [do.] Come over to Friday, pal. Say what you gotta say and eat another boot to the f——- mouth. I hate that guy, Adam Cole.”
McAfee then shared his hope that Cole will get “decimated” by Karrion Kross during the Fatal 5-Way match at NXT TakeOver: In Your House.
“This Sunday he’s somehow just bullied and waltzed his way into an NXT Championship shot at In Your House Sunday night or something like that,” said McAfee. “I hope he gets killed out there. I hope he gets decimated by Karrion Kross. I hope so. He deserves it.”
