During tonight’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, it was announced that Austin Theory is now only going by “Theory”.
During a backstage segment on this week’s Raw, Theory stormed into the offices of Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville, demanding a shot at the United States Championship. Pearce and Deville told him he was deserving of the opportunity and called him Austin while speaking. Theory then told them that his new ring name will now simply be ‘Theory’. He explained that he and Vince McMahon felt that he’d outgrown the name Austin.
Theory is set to take on Finn Balor next week for the WWE United States Championship.
