Austin Theory remains one of the young and rising talent in all of WWE. He made the most of the platform given to him by Johnny Gargano’s stable, The Way as well. Theory. He addressed comparisons to John Cena as well recently.
Theory has been on a roll since being called up to the main roster again last year. He had a solid WrestleMania 38 moment with Steve Austin and then won the United States Championship.
Theory shocked the world after winning the Money In The Bank match. For a very long time now Theory has been taking shots at John Cena and even been compared to him.
While speaking on The Ringer Wrestling Show, Theory talked about the fact that many people call him the next John Cena. Theory stated that he feels he is doing different things than John Cena.
“I think as I see myself like and getting older and, you know, your mind changes and stuff like that, like I love the comparisons, there’s always gonna be comparisons because people want to always try to relate something to something. But, when you really look at the detail of stuff, I’m doing my own thing, you know. Like John Cena didn’t have any championships at 24 and he’s a, you know, 16-17 time world champion, you know, possibly and it’s like, okay, but over that process of a career, like, imagine me. But it’s like just doing different things and it’s like, like I said, always appreciative of comparisons and stuff like that, but definitely agree with, you know, being the, you know, not the next John Cena being my first me.
WWE might be delaying John Cena vs Austin Theory until WrestleMania next year. We will have to wait and see whether he’ll win back the United States title from Bobby Lashley at WWE SummerSlam this week.
