Before tonight’s show, McAfee had tweeted that he and Cole had a productive personal reconciliation. Clearly, this was intended to swerve the audience (and, in storyline, Cole) into a false sense of security:
Hey @AdamColePro.. I’m thankful for the opp to chat.
I feel like the convo was something that doesn’t happen often anymore..2 people have a miscommunication, they talk about, can agree to disagree about some things & they move forward.
How you doin?

It’s presumable (though not yet booked) that these two gentlemen will wrestle at NXT Takeover on August 22nd.
