Following the fantastic angle on last night’s edition of NXT, WWE COO Triple H appeared on ESPN’s ‘Get Up’ show this morning to challenge the NFL’s official Punter Of The Decade to a match at NXT Takeover on Saturday August 22nd.

McAfee appeared on last night’s NXT to attack Cole following an earlier physical confrontation on McAfee’s YouTube show.

Now Triple H has officially laid down the gauntlet for the former Indianapolis Colt to face NXT’s longest reigning champion the night before SummerSlam.

The Game had the following to say to ESPN:

“There is one thing about Pat McAfee that everyone should understand; Pat grew up dreaming about being a WWE superstar. It is everything he thought he would ever be as a kid. He ended up in the NFL and one of the most successful and toughest kickers ever, but his dream was to be in WWE. The spotlight is really what he craves. It’s all about Pat McAfee. That’s a good thing, but in this situation, he is craving this spotlight and he is doing it by going after Adam Cole. He is in his head. Pat McAfee wants to be famous, I can make his dream come true. You wanna be famous? We have a big TakeOver on August 22, put your money where your mouth is. Pat McAfee vs. Adam Cole,”
