Austin Theory has been engaged in a storyline with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon ever since Survivor Series concluded last year. It also featured him getting slapped by Vince McMahon. It seems Jim Cornette is not a fan of Austin Theory’s current booking in WWE.
Theory has had a worthwhile run on the main roster so far, as he defeated Jeff Hardy, faced Big E for the WWE Championship and is now involved in a storyline with Vince McMahon.
While speaking on the Jim Cornette Experience, Jim Cornette talked about Austin Theory’s storyline with Vince McMahon. Cornette believes that Vince McMahon’s idea for Theory just isn’t working and that no one on McMahon’s team can tell him his ideas aren’t working.
“I believe somehow Vince McMahon sees this is portraying to the fans that he has taken Austin Theory under his wing because he likes the ‘Ruthless Aggression’ and/or ‘The Attitude’ or whatever the other marketing slogans that the kid has. However, McMahon will be showing him tough love and bring it out in a forceful manner, force him to get to the top. That is just what Vince is telling himself and telling other people.
As it’s coming across, I genuinely believe that there is no one there that has the capability to tell Vince McMahon, ‘Well, that may be the idea, but in execution, it’s not coming across.’ So that’s what I think is going on.”
Tommy Dreamer also recently urged Austin Theory to not blow his opportunity in WWE. It remains to be whether Theory will truly benefit from his storyline with Vince McMahon or not.
