Color Steve Austin as impressed with Pat McAfee.
McAfee has quickly taken to the world of professional wrestling, not only earning praise for his skills on the microphone, but also for what he's pulled off in-ring.
Speaking to ESPN, one of the best of all-time on the mic Steve Austin gave McAfee the "Stone Cold stamp of approval."
"He puts it all on the line and is going for it. His verbal skills, he's slaying everybody. He's not afraid to go out there and put it on the line. You wouldn't expect that from a guy who goes out there and kicks a football. Pat McAfee is badass and is doing a really good job. I give him a solid A," said Austin when asked to grade the former Colts punter.
Austin was also asked to grade former WWE 24/7 Champion Rob Gronkowski and San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle, who has done an impression of The Rock. Austin gave Gronkowski a "B+" because the 24/7 Title isn't the same as winning the WWE Championship according to Austin and gave Kittle, "An A for effort, a B+ overall" for his Rock impression.
"Stone Cold" isn't the only former WWE Champion who enjoys the work of McAfee as CM Punk recently took to social media to praise the leader of the Kings of NXT. You can view Punk's comments by clicking here.
