McAfee spoke with CBS 4 in Indianapolis to discuss being a part of the Colts' Kickoff concert on September 1st and during the interview McAfee went over his working relationship with WWE's NXT brand. Pat stated that it is a very interesting endeavor and it is going to be fun to see what happens next as he continues his working relationship with the company.

"I would like you to know that, that is a very interesting endeavor,” McAfee said. "It is one of the reasons why I retired whenever I was younger, I’ve always been a fan of the WWE sports entertainment and the fact now I have a working relationship with them is very beautiful--that one is going to be a fun one to see what happens."
