At just 25 years of age, Austin Theory has an impressive list of accomplishments in WWE. Formerly a member of The Way in NXT, he made his way to the main roster in October of 2021 and quickly found a role as Vince McMahon’s protégé after it was revealed that he’d stolen the then-WWE Chairman’s precious Cleopatra’s Egg. Vince McMahon would continue to teach him lessons in the coming months, but he also gave him opportunities, such as a WWE Championship match against Big E and also a place in the men’s Royal Rumble.
Austin Theory‘s star continued to rise as he defeated Finn Balor in April to become the United States Champion. After a number of successful title defenses, he lost the championship to Bobby Lashley at Money in the Bank on July 2nd, but his night took a turn for the fortunate when Vince McMahon declared him as a surprise entrant into the men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match, which he went on to win.
Theory has achieved all this with a cocky attitude and a love of selfies that he uses to humiliate fallen opponents or just to have a good look at himself as he makes his entrance.
Austin Theory praises fan tribute
It was that entrance a fan paid tribute to in a recent video from viral TikTok star Ebuka Dikeh. In the video, Dikeh recreated Austin Theory’s entrance perfectly, although it was in a car park rather than the arena’s Mr. Money In The Bank is used to.
Theory retweeted the video, saying the entrance was “ALL DAY”.
Now that is ALL DAY🚀 https://t.co/abocEfBnTa

Ebuka Dikeh is well-known for his wrestling videos
This isn’t the first time Dikeh has gone viral with his recreations of WWE entrances. Earlier this year, he and some other fans made their entrance as The Bloodline, complete with replica WWE Championship belts.
Not only did the video go viral but The Tribal Chief himself, Roman Reigns, gave it his personal seal of approval since Dikeh acknowledged him. Paul Heyman, however, smelled a lawsuit.
