On January 29, Austin Theory participated in the Royal Rumble by entering with number 3 but was eliminated by AJ Styles. In the next episode of Monday Night Raw, Theory got the better of Kevin Owens, securing a seat in the Elimination Chamber match that will take place this Saturday in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia).
The 24-year-old from McDonough was brutally assaulted by Brock Lesnar on Raw last night, certainly not the best approach to pay-per-view on stage this weekend. As if that were not enough, the alliance between Austin and Vince McMahon seems to have ended.
In the latest edition of 'Legion of RAW' on Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo threw yet another dig at Vince McMahon and his collaborators.
Latest update on Austin Theory
"Am I wrong or the plot between Austin Theory and Vince McMahon hasn't developed anymore?" - began Russo.
“Based on what happened at the Royal Rumble, it seems clear to me that Theory has been labeled a loser and that Vince McMahon has walked away from him. The segments of the last two months were thrown away in an instant” - he added to the dose.
Vince highlighted the company's inability to create new global icons: "Who have legends like The Undertaker and John Cena passed the baton to? These champions did not help the young talents to emerge. They just disappeared.
Taker has moved away from wrestling for age reasons, while Cena has now become one of the most popular actors in Hollywood. When Vince McMahon needs big stars for WrestleMania or an event in Saudi Arabia, he offers them a bunch of money and they get back into the ring.
Often and willingly, they take the place of athletes who work full-time. The same concept is also applicable to The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin”. Russo finally commented on Mickie James’s return to the Royal Rumble: “WWE just wanted to be forgiven for the way they treated her when she was released.
I'm referring to the story of the garbage bag where his stuff was put”. Brock Lesnar was present on this week's RAW to confront WWE Champion Bobby Lashley inside the ring. Also present in the ring were Lashley's other opponents for the Elimination Chamber match, including Austin Theory.
Theory, who has lately been acting like a try-hard on the red brand to appease WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, ended up jumping on Lesnar from behind. However, Theory visited Suplex City and later got dropped with an F-5 as the rest of the superstars cleared the ring.
