Austin Theory on being called to RAW
"I remember I was doing a leg workout on a football field, you know? Of course, Austin Theory is always working out," Austin said through a smile.
"But yeah, they called me and they said, 'Hey, we want you to come film Main Event' So, I was like, 'Okay' I get there and the Main Event match, the actual match, gets cut. So now they're just like, 'Just come back tomorrow and film it', and I say, 'Okay'
So, I show up the next day, I film Main Event. I'm like, 'Hey, do you guys need me for anything else?' They're like, 'Nope' "So, I go all the way home and get a call, 'Hey, you need to come to RAW.
I'm like, 'Oh, okay'," Austin recalled. "And then we do some RAW, and then right after that, they're like 'Hey, you're on WrestleMania now!' I'm just like, 'Alright'"
Austin also met the legendary Paul Heyman at the 10th Anniversary of Evolve. That show was aired on the WWE Network. Paul Heyman told Austin that they will meet again soon. Austin didn’t know that would be at WrestleMania 36.
"When we did have that show on the independents and Paul Heyman showed up, he told me before he left, 'I'll be seeing you very soon' I didn't know that would be WrestleMania 36," Austin said. "So, yeah, but people ask me how I feel, like were you nervous? But honestly man, I feel like you get nervous when you have time to...
It happened so quick, so I didn't really have the time to get all worried or, 'Oh man, what if this goes wrong? What about this? Like, there was just no time to think. It was just, yo, go do what you know." Austin Theory also revealed that he is still a huge wrestling fan and still he joined wrestling as he was a fan. Right now, he is still in the process of becoming one of the best in WWE.
