RAW Superstar Austin Theory recently sat down with Shakiel Mahjouri of CBS Sports to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked about the recent regime change in WWE, Theory said he had no worries about it because he’s worked alongside Triple H before in NXT.
“The first thing you think of is, ‘Well who is in charge?’ As soon as I found out who the team was — Stephanie, Triple H, Nick Khan, Bruce Prichard — having those people, I have a good relationship with all of them,” Theory said. “I think the Mr. McMahon retirement got a lot of us. We’ve seen him forever and he laid the foundation. Literally, there are all these superstars because of Mr. McMahon. I think it was like a, ‘Wow, that’s really happening.’ That’s kind of where it got me.
“As far as creative and the future, no worries about that just because of the talent and being with Triple H before. Knowing his strategies and his creative power and the direction he looks at things. And not only having him. We have Stephanie, we have Nick Khan and we have Bruce Prichard. These are all eyes that are on the game in different ways. I think when it comes to that foundation that Mr. McMahon laid for us, here are these people to give us a bunch of creativity. Here it is. I think there is no better time than now. Especially just speaking on the talent that is involved on the roster. We have a hell of a roster. It’s very exciting to know what the future is and it’s going to be very competitive.”
Theory went face to face with John Cena on an episode of WWE RAW earlier this summer. When asked if Cena would be who he’d like to step into the ring with at WrestleMania, Theory confirms this is the case and is pretty confident it could happen.
“You know what? I will say that I’m pretty confident that could happen. For sure. And I want that to happen.”
