Pat McAfee NXT Status Update
Former NFL player Pat McAfee has been working for WWE’s NXT brand since this past July. During his time on the brand, McAfee has been primarily involved in a feud with Adam Cole and the Undisputed Era and last wrestled for the company at their NXT TakeOver: WarGames 2020 event earlier this month.
Dave Meltzer reported in this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE officials recently made the decision to pull McAfee from NXT television for at least the next several months. Meltzer reported that McAfee had no input in the decision nor was given an exact time frame for his NXT return.
McAfee reportedly was given the impression by WWE officials that he would likely be returning at some point during Spring 2021.

Ronda Rousey Comments on Toughest Aspect of Her WWE Career
Digital Spy held a recent interview with Ronda Rousey and one of the topics discussed included Rousey’s thoughts on the toughest aspect of her WWE career.
“I love wrestling but I think it was maybe Sarah Rowe (Sarah Logan in WWE) who told me this, she wrestles for free but they pay her to travel. The hardest part I think was just not being able to lay down horizontally, you know. Taking a bunch of hard bumps, your back hurts and you just want to lay down. All I wanted to do between shows is lay down with my legs up and traveling you’re just sitting upright all the time and my back would kill me. So the actual act of traveling I do not miss it all, it was the absolute worse.
My bottom vertebrae in my back is actually broken in half. So that has something to do with it. But traveling on a broken back is the absolute worst. I love being home on my extra firm Tempur-Pedic mattress every night.”
