WrestleMania is coming up and sometimes things can change on television due to the show of shows. That seems to be the case once again.

WWE taped Main Event ahead of Monday Night RAW. One of the matches for the show featured Austin Theory and Apollo Crews in singles action. WWE dropped the match from the main event broadcast.

The company filled the vacant slot with replays from the previous RAW and SmackDown. The company did not reveal any reason as to why they cut the match from the Main Event broadcast.

Several outlets, however, reported that a change in WrestleMania plans prompted officials to cut the match from the broadcast. The plans were reportedly tweaked after WWE filmed the Theory versus Crews match.

Theory has been getting major push of late. He was the last participant to be eliminated by Brock Lesnar inside the chamber at the 2022 Elimination Chamber pay-per-view event in Saudi Arabia.

The 24-year-old was also Lesnar’s surprise opponent at the WWE Live Event last night at Madison Square Garden (MSG). Theory is set to take on SmackDown announcer Pat McAfee at Mania 38.
