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.
Theory has been on a streak of bad luck as of late. He has lost to Drew McIntyre, Kevin Owens, Bobby Lashley and Johnny Gargano. While speaking on his podcast, Keepin’ It 100, Konnan criticized WWE over their questionable booking for Austin Theory.
“My theory on Theory (Austin) is I don’t know if Hunter doesn’t see the same thing as Vince because, bro, he has been taking a lot of losses, and this was a clean loss. Now, I talk about distractions and interferences which they do too much, but this was like a clean loss to Gargano. So I don’t know if they are gonna have him cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase and get him all his heat back and in the meantime, he keeps doing jobs. But it just seems that’s all he’s been doing.”
We will have to wait and see whether WWE will eventually improve Austin Theory’s booking or not. It seems unlikely for the time being.
