Austin Theory was a favorite of Vince McMahon’s, but it seems that he is in good hands after WWE’s big shift in power. Obviously, Mr. McMahon’s retirement was a shock for many, but Austin Theory was happy to hear who got the company’s reins.

While speaking to CBS Sports’ Shakiel Mahjouri, Austin Theory opened up about McMahon retiring. This was, of course, a shock, but he wanted to know who was taking command next. When he found out who was placed in control, Theory was very happy about it.

“So to me, the first thing you think of is like, ‘Well then who’s in charge?’ As soon as I found out who the team was, Stephanie, Triple H, Nick Khan, Bruce Prichard, I have a good relationship with all of them.”

“But I think the Mr. McMahon retirement got a lot of us because, you know, we’ve seen him forever. He laid the foundation. Literally, there’s all these Superstars because of Mr. McMahon. I think it was just kind of like, wow, like, that’s really happening. So that’s kind of where it got me there.”


“But as far as creative and the future, no worries about that just because of the talent and being with Triple H before, and knowing his strategies and his creative power, and his direction of how he looks at things. Not only having him, but we have Stephanie, we have Nick Khan, we have Bruce Prichard, and these are all eyes that are on the game in different ways. I think when it comes to that foundation Mr. McMahon has laid for us, okay, here’s these people to give us a bunch of creativity and here it is. I think it’s no better time than now, especially even just speaking on the talent that’s involved now that’s on the roster. We have a hell of a roster. So it’s very exciting to know what the future is and it’s going to be very competitive.”

We’ll have to see what’s next for Mr. Money in the Bank. Odds are he will continue receiving a spotlight, because Austin Theory was also someone Triple H loved using in NXT as well.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
