Despite having feuded with him on Monday Night Raw, Austin Theory has admitted to learning one crucial thing from Dolph Ziggler.
Mr Money in the Bank Austin Theory had a bit of an issue with Dolph Ziggler before SummerSlam. The two settled their issue on the 15 August edition of Monday Night Raw when they squared off in the main event. After a back-and-forth battle, the 25-year-old hit Ziggler with the A-Town Down for the win.
In a new interview with WrestleRant, Theory revealed the one crucial thing he learned from Ziggler. ‘The Showoff’ apparently taught the young upstart that it’s sometimes better to slow down and take in the crowd:
“With Dolph [Ziggler], really learned just getting the crowd and just taking your time.”
Regardless of Ziggler’s advice, the 2022 Mr Money in the Bank hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down. Since debuting on the main roster, Theory has become the youngest United States Champion and almost cashed-in his briefcase at SummerSlam to become the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
Theory’s momentum has now been slowed down by Kevin Owens and his former mentor in The Way, Johnny Gargano. He’s set to go one-on-one with Gargano on 10 October during the season premiere of Monday Night Raw.
