Austin Theory is one of the young and rising stars of WWE and had a solid start as part of Johnny Gargano’s stable, The Way. His first main roster run wasn’t anything to write home about but that was rectified eventually. He also told Vince McMahon he wants to be the face of WWE.

It has been an eventful few months for young Theory, as he had a WrestleMania 38 moment with Steve Austin. He then became the United States Champion, the youngest in history, as the company is clearly pushing him.

While speaking to Ryan Satin on Out of Character, Theory was asked if he believes he could be the face of WWE. The young WWE Superstar said that he told Vince McMahon he wants to be the face of the company.

“I think so. I don’t know what that level is because I’m on my way up and slowly starting to see how different things are and is a lot of evolution for Theory as a character and me, in my life, being ready for that. The way things are going, I feel I’m at a steady pace, but at the same time, there are some things that happen that put you on a new level. Honestly, I try not to get in my head too much because, at the end of the day, these are big accomplishments and this is the WWE. This is what I dreamed of my whole life.


At the end of the day, I know myself and I know my work ethic and I plan to only get better. I want to give this everything I’ve got and I don’t want to hold anything back. I also want to enjoy every single moment, I’m not in a hurry. I want to enjoy the process because you only get one shot at this, one shot at life. For me, that sounds awesome. To be fair, I’ve envisioned myself being the guy and that’s a huge step to take. I’m on my way, for sure. Right now, I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing. My ears are open, my mouth is shut, I’m going to keep going

Theory was also called the best in-ring worker of the next generation. Austin Theory also wants to defend his WWE United States Championship against John Cena. We’ll have to see if he will become the face of WWE one day or not.
