The departure of Vince McMahon was a strange situation in the world of wrestling. The man who started the whole story and made a great empire (WWE) had to leave the head of the company. WWE superstar Austin Theory spoke to BS Sports' Shakiel Mahjouri and revealed how he reacted to the news that McMahon was leaving.
“So to me, the first thing you think of is like, ‘Well then who’s in charge?’ As soon as I found out who the team was, Stephanie, Triple H, Nick Khan, and Bruce Prichard, I have a good relationship with all of them.
But I think the Mr. McMahon retirement got a lot of us because, you know, we’ve seen him forever. He laid the foundation. Literally, there’s all these Superstars because of Mr. McMahon. I think it was just kind of like, wow, like, that’s really happening.
So that’s kind of where it got me there,”- he said, as quoted by PWmania.com
Austin Theory on the new faces
Austin Theory believes that the new leadership of the company has experience in this business and that the company will not have any problems after the departure of Vince.
“But as far as creative and the future, no worries about that just because of the talent and being with Triple H before, and knowing his strategies and his creative power, and his direction of how he looks at things.
Not only having him, but we have Stephanie, we have Nick Khan, we have Bruce Prichard, and these are all eyes that are on the game in different ways. I think when it comes to that foundation Mr. McMahon has laid for us, okay, here’s these people to give us a bunch of creativity and here it is.
I think it’s no better time than now, especially even just speaking on the talent that’s involved now that’s on the roster. We have a hell of a roster. So it’s very exciting to know what the future is and it’s going to be very competitive”.
