Austin Theory Gets His Old Ring Name Back

Austin Theory

The changes keep coming in Triple H’s WWE with the news that Mr. Money In The Bank is set to get his first name back and become Austin Theory once again.

With the retirement of Vince McMahon and the rise to the top of WWE of Triple H, many changes have already taken place. Stars such as Hit Row, Dexter Lumis, Dakota Kai, Karrion Kross, Scarlett, and Johnny Gargano have all returned to the company with the atmosphere said to be more laid back and relaxed under the new regime.

One other change that was seen on Raw is that certain names might be reverting to their previous form. Matt Riddle had been known simply by his surname under a previous edict from Vince McMahon but as of Raw he officially has his first name back.

Mike Johnson of PWInsider has now confirmed that Theory will once again be known as Austin Theory going forward. The former United States Champion lost his first name after his run-in with Stone Cold Steve Austin at WrestleMania 38.

Another potential change could be in the works for a SmackDown star who had a change to their presentation on the show that will air on the 2nd of September.
