Pat McAfee was feeling in the mood to brag after Pete Dunne gave the Kings of NXT the advantage in their upcoming WarGames match against the Undisputed Era. On last night’s show, Dunne defeated Kyle O’Reilly in a match that saw a masked man that appeared to be McAfee interfere. McAfee posted to Twitter denying that it was him but praised the man as well as Dunne, writing in a series of posts:

“That was absolutely definitely not I on #WWENXT… w/ that being said, big thanks to whatever freak athlete went out there & did the right thing by knocki’ ol’ cauliflower off that ladder THAT A BOY @PeteDunneYxB, we’re basically GUARANTEED to win WARGAMES now”

“YOU’RE DAMN RIGHTTT That masked man just might be the best athlete I’ve ever seent.. Wish he would’ve taken off his mask. That’s a shame.. anyways HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO EVERYBODY BUT THE #UE #WWENXT #PATisNXT”

“WHOA WHOA WHOA…where’s the holiday spirit @AdamColePro?? This morning I wake up wildly thankful for.. Family, friends, being alive, and DEFINITELY that incredibly fair ladder match last night that saw THE GUY @PeteDunneYxB bring home THE DUB Wish I could’ve been there”
