Austin Theory remains one of the young and rising talent in all of WWE. While Theory had a streak of bad luck for the past few months, things have certainly turned around for the young star. In fact, Theory feels he is being set up to defeat Roman Reigns.
Theory failed to cash in his Money In The Bank briefcase on RAW a few weeks ago and that marked the beginning of a change in his character. Fans are clearly interested in what he does now. As Ringside News exclusively reported, losing the MITB briefcase as actually a great thing for Theory.
Theory won the United States Championship at WWE Survivor Series as well. While speaking with CityNews Ottawa, Austin Theory stated that he feels he is being set up to defeat Roman Reigns.
“The cocky, arrogant, douchy persona just really gets under people’s skin and it did its purpose. And having the Money in the Bank contract and the way that character was, there’s a little bit of a ceiling there just because when you look at Roman being so unstoppable and everything.
Whoever is going to beat Roman Reigns it’s gotta be someone that is really going to beat Roman Reigns and not just by some luck and I think the chapter that Austin Theory is headed now, is setting him up to build to being that qualifier to stand toe to toe with Roman Reigns.”
Austin Theory is set to feud with Seth Rollins as he will eventually defend his United States Title against The Visionary. We will have to wait and see whether Theory will end to beating Roman Reigns in the future or not.
