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 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. He eventually lost the title as well, but that didn’t stop his momentum.

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.

Speaking with Shakiel Mahjouri of CBS Sports, Theory noted that he’s “pretty confident” that a match with Cena could happen at WrestleMania.


To have that moment with him, the person that — I had to put in my own work — but somebody that got me to the dance mentally, it takes the words out of my mouth to think of that actually happening.

It’s so weird to meet somebody and pretty much have to explain to them, ‘I modeled my whole life after you.’ It’s one of those things as a kid getting bullied, my dad not being in my life a lot. Cena, I could watch him and just escape. It was the connection to his personality. That’s something I learned from him. He told me, ‘Don’t ever think people go out there and want people to connect to their performance. Nobody will connect to your performance unless they connect to your personality. I started thinking, even with that process through NXT to finally being drafted to Raw officially, it was a time to figure stuff out. How can I connect to them with my personality? This is a world in WWE where everybody can kill it in the ring. Everyone can go hard in the ring. So what’s going to set you aside from killing it in the ring? I learned that from him

WWE might be delaying John Cena vs Austin Theory until WrestleMania next year. Theory will also feud with Johnny Gargano on Monday Night RAW for the time being. It remains to be seen how the feud turns out to be.
