While speaking with WWE Deutschland, Austin Theory talked about working with Vince McMahon. Theory revealed that there is a lot of pressure but loves it as a great learning experience.
“It’s amazing. I remember the first time I found out we were going to do anything together, work together. I was nervous because I’m like, there’s no, there’s no bigger like star in, I feel like in WWE than Mr. McMahon. And then it comes to sports entertainment as a whole, you know, he’s definitely the first on that Mount Rushmore.
To me, that’s like all going through my head when I gotta go, you know, sit down with him and we have to shoot this promo. And especially, you know, being live, it’s a lot of pressure. But I think over the time, like just learning from him and knowing what he wants and what he’s looking for, and just his, you know, mentorship and him helping mold me and understand, you know, how the WWE works, it’s, it’s awesome and I have no complaints about it whatsoever.”
As seen on this week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown, it was confirmed that Austin Theory will be duking it out with Pat McAfee at the Showcase Of The Immortals next month. We will have to see who will win the match.
