WWE saw a main roster call-up recently and this week it was made official. Austin Theory is now a RAW Superstar after spending a few weeks performing on Monday Night. He also received a WrestleMania match in the process.
Vince McMahon is still the deciding force in WWE. He had some help picking Austin Theory. During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained that Austin Theory received a main roster call-up thanks to Paul Heyman.
“This isn’t Vince, this is definitely Heyman and [Austin Theory] was brought up because they needed a guy for WrestleMania and they were impressed enough. It is too early, way too early, but those are the breaks. They liked the idea of the 3 person stable with Zelina Vega, Andrade, Angel Garza, and Austin Theory.”
Austin Theory has a lot of potential, but he didn’t spend much time in NXT. Now he will get a chance to learn even more in front of millions as a RAW Superstar. WWE certainly placed him in a stable with enough talent around him.
