Austin Theory made his WWE main roster debut on this weeks RAW episode after being pulled up from the NXT roster.
Austin Theory is a 6’1, 220 pounds 22 years old former professional bodybuilding and EVOLVE Champion. He was signed to a WWE developmental deal in 2019.
Vince McMahon decided to call up Theory after the young superstar caught his attention. Triple H and Paul Heyman also brought up the superstar potential Austin Theory has to McMahon.
Vince McMahon likens Austin Theory to a young John Cena who also was a body builder before signing with WWE. McMahon always looked upon WWE Superstars with good physics with more respect and consideration for more opportunities. For a young up and coming superstar, a comparison to The Rock, Stone Cold, Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker or John Cena is the highest compliment one could receive from the WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.
WWE is looking to groom Austin Theory into a potentially new generation WWE Superstar and plans have been discussed to get Theory mainstream WWE exposure in accelerated developmental speed.
United States Championship and Tag-Team Championship programs are being discussed for Austin Theory and the mid-card is the entry way for superstars to be tested and observed if they are ready for WWE Universal Championship opportunities.
As many of the great Attitude/Ruthless Aggression Era WWE Superstars have moved into part-time roles, Vince McMahon is looking for the next generation of WWE Superstars now more than ever for the company to have a strong future.
WWE needs a new class of fresh superstars and Austin Theory could be part of the first class. Stay tuned to Slice Wrestling for the latest updates.
