Former NFL Punter Pat McAfee will join Charly Caruso and Sam Roberts on the NXT TakeOver: New Orleans pre-show panel on Saturday 7th April – the eve of WrestleMania.

The former All-Pro, who spent eight years in the NFL, is no stranger to the black-and-yellow brand.

He served as a special guest ring announcer at an NXT Live Event in Indianapolis last month and even made his presence felt, helping Aleister Black defeat Adam Cole, with whom McAfee had traded barbs on social media.

The outspoken McAfee, a former recipient of the NFL’s “Walter Payton Man of the Year” award, currently hosts a Sirius XM radio show and “The Pat McAfee Show” podcast, as well as heads up Barstool Heartland, a branch of Barstool Sports.

NXT TakeOver: New Orleans will be shown live on the WWE Network on Saturday 7th April.
