Austin Theory has been a blue-chip prospect for a long time in WWE. The current WWE United States champion is having the best run of his career and is gearing up to battle the Franchise Player, John Cena at WrestleMania 39. With Theory set to square off against his so-called childhood hero, he seems confident and claimed himself to be the most important thing going in WWE today.

Austin Theory has been credited for his amazing rise to the card, which began as Vince McMahon’s handpicked protege. It further transitioned into Theory becoming a two-time United States champion and winning the Money in the Bank ladder match.

However, Austin Theory was confronted by the Face that Runs the Place, John Cena a few weeks ago in his hometown of Boston. After verbally burying ‘The Now’, Cena accepted his challenge for showdown at WrestleMania.

Austin Theory was asked about his perspective on Cena’s statement that even if he wins at WrestleMania, he’ll ultimately “lose” because of the pressure that comes with defeating a legend of Cena’s stature. He spoke about the same and called himself the most important thing in the WWE landscape, in recent interview with Chris Van Vliet.


“Yeah, I get it. I get it because he wants everybody to believe that I don’t have it, that I’m screwed. But that is a man that says that because when he looks in my eyes, he knows that I have everything. I do. He has a legacy, he has so much. Everybody knows John Cena, he’s the top of the top. I think when he looks at me and sees that I’m 25 and he sees that the level that I’m on and the things that I’m doing and the level that I’m growing at, it can’t be touched. It really can’t be. So you have to look me in my eyes and tell me that if I beat you, that I lose everything. But we all know that’s wrong John.. why?

Why if it means nothing does he even want to have this match? He wants to have this match because I’m the most important thing in the WWE. It’s clear as day. There’s a lot of people that wanna sit there and [disagree with that], but then they’re gonna have to go ‘Okay, Theory’s the guy.’

They’re gonna have to. It’s just where we are man. So, him saying that me winning means I’m gonna lose everything, okay. I can’t wait to lose everything when I show up on Monday Night Raw, my show, holding my title because that’s inevitable. All of those people that he says don’t believe in me, I could care less. Guess how many people believed in me when I was 8 and told them I wanted to be a WWE superstar.

Guess how many people laughed at me when I was twelve sitting at the table in school when I told them I wanted to be a WWE superstar. I don’t need people to believe in me and I’ve always shown that. If I don’t believe that, I don’t think I’d be where I’m at [being] 25 today. So, it is what it is. WrestleMania 39, it’s my night. It’s my show and I’m gonna own that and show that. That is All Day and that is inevitable.”

Fans and critics have wanted to see Austin Theory compete against a 16-time World champion John Cena for a long time. The seeds were planted during Cena’s 20th-anniversary show and have come down to a high-stakes United States title match between the two on the Grandest Stage of them All.
