The team for BroBible sent the following quotes:

“For instance with Pat McAfee came in and did his deal with Adam Cole. At the beginning, I was like, ‘Man, I’ve never seen a kicker get into a fight. What does this guy know about going out and throwing hands?’ I watched him go out and work and perform, but then I watched the work that he put into it. And then I watched the respect and the love that comes from him inside. That’s not something that you can teach someone. That’s not something that’s pretend. And then he went out and did a hell of a job and I’m like, ‘Wow, man.’ He won me over. But at the beginning, I didn’t feel that way about him. When it fits, when it works, go with it.”
