WWE will sometimes call an NXT Superstar up to the main roster following WrestleMania. This year the call-up seems to have happened early for Austin Theory. There was a time when fans weren’t sure if he would go back to NXT. It appears that he is there to stay.
Austin Theory took on Akira Tozawa this week on Raw. Zelina Vega’s stable of Theory, Andrade, and Angel Garza also received a lot of focus this week. They appeared several times throughout the night. Andrade was also featured in the main event match against Drew McIntyre.
For some reason, Austin Theory’s profile on the official WWE website has not been updated yet. It still shows that he is an NXT Superstar. They will probably do that very soon.
Next week, Austin Theory is in a Money In The Bank qualifying match against Aleister Black. NXT Superstars typically don’t received MITB qualifying matches.
It appears that Austin Theory is on Raw now. Let’s just see how long it takes for WWE to switch his profile over to reflect that. They have a lot of things going on right now in the company.
Theory was also inserted into the Raw Tag Team Title Match at WrestleMania. He teamed with Angel Garza in a losing effort versus the Street Profits when Andrade was injured.
