Austin Theory had a memorable run in NXT where he was part of Johnny Gargano’s stable, The Way. He would eventually make his way to the main roster and his fortunes increased from there. It seems Theory wants to break a record held by Brock Lesnar.
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. Many fans believe Theory is on the cusp of greatness as well.
Lesnar also beat up Theory on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW. While speaking to The Hindustan Times, Austin Theory stated that he wants to be the youngest WWE Champion in history. The record is currently held by Lesnar, who won it at the age of 25 after he defeated The Rock in 2002.
”As an eight-year-old watching WWE for the first time, it was always a goal of mine to win the WWE title. Especially the opportunity I have in Saudi Arabia at the Elimination Chamber, this is huge.
It is the biggest challenge I ever had, and this is everything that I’ve been working for. Everybody knows once you win the WWE Championship, your life change and this could possibly be me becoming the youngest WWE Champion in the history.”
Tommy Dreamer also recently urged Austin Theory to not blow his opportunity in WWE. We will have to wait and see how he will perform in the Elimination Chamber match on February 19th in Saudi Arabia.
