What are WWE's new plans for Austin Theory?

Austin Theory has just won the United States Championship at Survivor Series: WarGames, a victory that certainly helps to relaunch his character. Austin had received a big push between late 2021 and early 2022, as well as becoming Vince McMahon's protégé.

After the resounding retirement of the latter last July and the advent of Triple H as the new head of the creative team, Theory's status had radically changed. The latter had suffered several defeats and many experts feared that he was now burned.

According to the latest rumors, Theory is expected to face John Cena at WrestleMania 39. The 16-time world champion is expected to return to action next year at the 'Showcase of the Immortals', which will be held a stone's throw from Hollywood.

The 2023 edition of Mania is also expected to host the great returns of The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin.

What's next for Austin Theory?

According to what was reported exclusively by 'Ringside News', John Cena has already spoken with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon about his eventual return to WrestleMania 39.

“WrestleMania is always WrestleMania and next year it will be held in Los Angeles. John should be there, even if he is still too early to be unbalanced” - he reads. Recently, the 'leader of the Cenation' was asked if he thinks he can win another world title: “My days in the ring are not over yet, so never say never.

At the same time, I am a realistic person and I know where my career is. It won't be easy to win another world title. The top of the mountain is reserved for young people. In all likelihood, I will remain a 16-time world champion." Cena does not remember with pleasure the beginning of his career: "I often limited myself to doing the homework during the shows and that approach almost led to my dismissal.

I will always be grateful to WWE for making my debut in a historical arena against an absolute legend like Kurt Angle, but at the time I was neither ruthless nor aggressive. I was quite submissive and passive, I acted like I was a fan catapulted into the ring." Austin Theory does not believe his WWE gimmick is too similar to the character that Tyler Breeze used to portray.

“You see stuff online where people are like, ‘It’s ripping this off, it’s ripping that off.’ To me, it’s a different way of doing it and I’m going about it a different way. Anything that people might have seen before or think they might have seen before, they don’t want to get along with it because they’re like, ‘Well, it’s already happened.’ But I think what I do is totally different”.
