Austin Theory had a rare opportunity handed to him when Vince McMahon decided that he wanted to take him under his wing on television. This resulted in plenty of backstage segments as Theory was pushed as Mr. Money in the Bank, and they also had plenty to do on the road to WrestleMania. Now that Vince McMahon is gone, Austin Theory is doing his own thing, and thriving. Still, he has memories of working with Mr. McMahon that won’t go away.
During their Vince McMahon and Austin Theory’s time together, a Cleopatra Egg was introduced. This was a tie-in for The Rock’s “Red Notice” film that was a cross-over promotion at the time.
While speaking to Fightful, Austin Theory joked about that egg. He is still waiting for his own replica, but he’ll settle for a prop and not the actual $100 million thing.
“I have not gotten my golden egg. I haven’t. I don’t know how it hasn’t happened. Dude, I need my golden egg. If you interview me next year and I don’t have it, it’s a big problem.
“Give me my egg. It was a $100 million egg. I just want a prop replica.”
Austin Theory has a huge test ahead of him at Elimination Chamber, where he will put the United States title on the line. This will be a big match for him, and it could lead toward another huge WrestleMania for the young WWE Superstar.
We’ll have to see if Vince McMahon ever returns to rekindle his mentorship with Austin Theory, or whether Theory will get one of those eggs. In the meantime, keep checking back with us at Ringside News.
