Vince McMahon Reportedly Set To Give Austin Theory Mega Push At The Royal Rumble

Vince McMahon

WWE Chairman Vince McMahon is set to give current Raw star Austin Theory a huge push at the upcoming Royal Rumble, according to a new report.

Austin Theory has been seen alongside Vince McMahon in backstage segments on Raw in recent weeks. The relationship began when McMahon made an appearance at Survivor Series in November with Cleopatra’s golden egg.

After the egg went missing, it transpired that the selfie-loving Austin Theory had taken the egg to capture a snap with the priceless memento. It appears that the WWE Chairman has taken Theory under his wing and was the one who revealed that the former member of The Way would be a part of the men’s 2022 Royal Rumble match.

WrestlingNews.co has now reported that a WWE source has indicated that Theory will last deep into the men’s Rumble match:

“Austin [Theory] is going to get time to shine in the Rumble match. Last I heard was he will be in the final 4 or 5 at the end of the match.”

Current odds for the men’s Royal Rumble match, according to SkyBet, have current WWE Champion Brock Lesnar as the favourite to win the match with Big E close behind him. Interestingly, AJ Styles and Omos are the joint third favourites to win the bout which will propel the winner to the main event of WrestleMania 38.
