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 last week’s RAW, Theory lost to Kevin Owens. Afterwards, Johnny Gargano attacked him with the Money in the Bank briefcase.
While speaking on his Jim Cornette Experience podcast, Jim Cornette stated that he believes Austin Theory might have angered a higher up.
The one undisputed thing that poor billionaire Vince was doing when he lost his mind was trying to push Austin Theory and make him one of the next top guys. He was the handpicked protege of the Chairman, he was in all the promos. Even if some of the creative was caca, they were trying. Apparently, Austin Theory has pi*sed somebody off. I don’t know what the issue is. Especially Triple H being more inclined to push guys that can work and look like stars, more serious and less of the goofy stuff that Vince was into. Theory can’t beat a fu*king rug no more.
“Something’s going on. Either just because there’s backlash because he was Vince’s guy or he pi*sed somebody off. Nobody that has any knowledge of pro wrestling can overlook that this guy’s work is tremendous for his age and his personality and promos for his level of experience of being that young. Something else is going.”
We will have to wait and see what will become of Austin Theory in the coming weeks.
