Since signing with WWE Austin Theory has been on a rocket ship to the top.
After starring in NXT, Theory arrived on Monday Night Raw on a permanent basis in October 2021. Since then he has become a two-time United States Champion, while the biggest moment of his career arguably came at WrestleMania 38. As part of his storyline with Vince McMahon, Theory ended up in a match against Pat McAfee and was on the receiving end of a Stunner from Stone Cold Steve Austin.
It has also been reported that Theory is set to face off against another legend at WrestleMania 39. To make all of this even more impressive, the Georgia native is just 25 years old.
Speaking on the AEW Unrestricted podcast, Theory’s trainer and current AEW star AR Fox discussed his rise to stardom. During the conversation, Fox revealed that Theory got him front-row tickets for WrestleMania 38.
“It’s awesome, it’s insane. We talk all the time. It’s mind-blowing. He’s happy to be there. It’s crazy. He got me front row tickets to his Mania match against Pat McAfee, and he ended up getting a stunner from Stone Cold.
We stood outside one arena where WrestleMania was being held one year and took a picture. Five years later, he was on one of the big billboards in the same arena. I’m proud. It’s crazy, and we still talk a lot. It’s always exciting when we talk. He’s telling me, ‘I think I’m gonna be doing this,’ and all this stuff. I’m kind of amazed. I knew he would be good, but he’s doing really good. Main events, long main events where he’s in control of top guys, beating them up. He’s closing segments a lot.”
