Austin Theory has worked hard to make himself one of the young and rising talent in all of WWE. He got his foot at the door thanks to Johnny Gargano’s stable, The Way, in NXT. His run on the WWE main roster as also seen a lot of success. There is also belief that he will be a bigger star than Sammy Guevara.
Theory then went on to win the Men’s Money In The Bank match and shocked everyone around the world. He even made history after winning the match. There are also those who have compared him to AEW’s Sammy Guevara.
While speaking on Jim Cornette’s Drive-Thru, Jim Cornette was asked who had a brighter future between Guevara and Theory. Cornette stated that it is definitely Theory, adding that Theory will be a bigger star between the two.
“Austin Theory, obviously [has a brighter future than Sammy Guevara]. Unless either one of them fuc*s up in some kind of personal way or suffers some kind of injury – which with Sammy’s style may not be far-fetched. But just taking into account who they are right now, what they look like going forward, Theory is already with the biggest company in the world and already they’ve decided – even though they don’t know how to do it anymore – they’ve decided they’re going to push him and try to make him a star.
Theory not only has Sammy on size and physique, but also his work. Sammy does all the insane stuff, but Theory, that’s what compelled me to watch him to begin with was that he’s got the basics down, he’s got the little things down, he has the body language and reaction, he’s a natural worker.”
RVD also believes it’s Austin Theory’s time to shine in WWE. He is also set to challenge Bobby Lashley for the United States Championship at SummerSlam. It remains to be seen whether he will win back his title or not. If anything, it seems Theory has a fan in Jim Cornette.
