Colts: Pat McAfee blew everybody away in his WWE debut

Former Colts punter Pat McAfee put on a show in his WWE debut.

Fans in Indianapolis will be thrilled to hear that Pat McAfee realized his childhood dream this weekend. His career has sure been a whirlwind after retiring from the NFL.

The former longtime Colts punter made his highly anticipated WWE debut on Saturday night. As we’ve seen through the years, first-timers don’t always make a seamless transition to the violent sport.

Amazingly enough, McAfee beat the odds and put on an absolutely electric performance. When you have wrestling legends like Triple H shouting you out on Twitter, well, let’s just say that the former eight-year NFL veteran should take a bow.

Part of what made McAfee so compelling from a viewership standpoint during his NFL career — not many punters can say that — was his tremendous athleticism. For obvious reasons, he rarely had the chance to put it on display.

However, we NEVER would have guessed that the 33-year-old had a backflip of this enormity in him. It wasn’t a perfect landing, but who are we to judge? That was freaking awesome.

That wasn’t all McAfee had in store for WWE fans, either. Would you believe us if we told you that he broke out the front flip to take everyone down while they were arguing outside of the ring?

Feast your eyes on this delicious aerial takedown, folks.

Did anybody else get the urge to want to try that move out after watching it?

The WWE should seriously considering having McAfee perform more regularly after his riveting debut. Maybe he can dual as a ringside announcer and occasional fighter. The fans would love it!

If you need us, we’ll be watching these clips on loop for the next several hours. Please do not disturb.
