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 tremendously 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.
On this week’s RAW, Kevin Owens cut a scathing promo on Austin Theory before they engaged in a brawl. Speaking on RAW Talk after the show, Theory stated that he is tired of people underrating him.
“He [Kevin Owens] wants to unveil that I’m just handed opportunities. Let me take you back down memory lane,” said Theory. “The Elimination Chamber, I beat Kevin Owens to get into the Elimination Chamber. What happened there? I was the only man in that chamber left with Brock Lesnar. And then, when I became the youngest United States Champion, I defended against a man that [sic] has done so many things. So many championships, Finn Balor, I beat him straight up.
I’m tired of people trying to downplay my achievements like I haven’t busted my a**. I’m the future. And the future is right in front of you, and that is A-Town down.”
WWE might be delaying John Cena vs Austin Theory until WrestleMania next year. Theory will also feud with Owens on Monday Night RAW for the time being. It remains to be seen how the feud turns out to be.
