Austin Theory worked hard to establish himself as one of the most gifted young stars in WWE. He got his first break back in NXT thanks to Johnny Gargano’s The Way and soon found himself on the main roster as Vince McMahon’s protégée.

Austin Theory improved a lot under the tutelage of Vince McMahon, as he saw great success in the past several months or so. This is especially the case now that he is Mr. Money In The Bank.

Johnny Gargano also came back on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW. He promptly took out Theory with a superkick. While speaking to Steve Fall of NBC Sports Boston, Theory discussed Gargano’s return. Theory claimed that Gargano is simply jealous of him.

“You know what, when the crowd was chanting ‘Who’s your daddy’ like they always do, part of me wanted to say, ‘Papa John’, but something just didn’t seem right. I think we all seen what it was. The thing is that a guy that took me under his wing and showed me the ropes and helped me out, and I admitted that, I admitted that to the world. Then, he shows up on my show though, somewhere where I’ve been paving the road.


Somewhere where I’ve done things that he hasn’t done. We all heard on Raw all of the achievements and all of the dreams he [has], [well] I’ve already done them. Why would you not wanna learn from me now? Is it because of the age? It’s very rude and as we seen how it turned out, you said it yourself, it’s jealousy. It clearly is. He already knows that the mountain that Theory is on, he’ll never be able to climb it. That’s just reality. I guess I’m going to have to show him the way.”

It seems the plan is for Johnny Gargano to feud with Theory for the time being. With Triple H at the helm now, it is likely both stars will hugely benefit from the feud in the long run.
