Austin Theory received a huge push under Vince McMahon’s regime. Also, Theory became the United States Champion. However, Theory lost his United States Title after wrestling Bobby Lashley at Money in the Bank PLE. In the same premium live event, he became the youngest Mr. Money in the Bank in WWE.
Many fans thought Theory would be the next face of WWE. However, everything upside down when Triple H came to the power. A lot of times Theory attempted to cash in his MITB contract but every time failed. On the October 18th episode of NXT, he teased a cash-in on NXT Champion Bron Breakker.
There is an idea that he is the first guy to wait a full year, like the day of or, let’s say, the night of Money in the Bank next year. That’s the storyline, like ‘you have to cash this in two and a half hours. You have to cash this in 90 minutes.’ That type of thing. I know that idea is on the table.
