Pat McAfee Believes NXT Suits Him Better Than WWE Main Roster

Former NFL punter and current leader of the Kings of NXT Pat McAfee recently spoke to Busted Open Radio to discuss all things pro-wrestling, including whether he thinks he would be as successful on the WWE main roster. Highlights are below.

Doesn't think he would do as well on the main roster:

Yeah, probably not. I’m in such a good situation where I can say that. I have a business, I have 10 employees, my guys and I go to work every single day trying to do our show and we have a merch business that does really well. Literally, everything I’ve said in promos is true. I’m in a very lucky situation for everything I’ve been in and I understand that a lot of professional wrestlers aren’t. I’m in a situation where I don’t want to say I can pick and choose, but it really is – if something gets pitched to me that I’m not 100 percent cool with, I am very much in a situation where I’m like ‘Nah, it’s OK, I appreciate that, and we’ll see if something else happens down the road.’ And I’m not a good reader.

Jokes that he's never read a book and how he's a visual learner:

I’ve literally never read a book in my entire life – that’s not something to brag about obviously and I don’t think kids should do that – it’s just not something I can do, it’s not my thing. I’m more a visual, I can hear things learner. When you hear about the script reading thing, I don’t think I’m that good of an actor that I could pull that off. So, I don’t think it would be good for them, and I don’t think it would be good for me……even though that is a bigger platform for the moment, that doesn’t feel like it would be good for me or for them to be a part of.
