Some people just get it, and it didn’t take Austin Theory long to become the kind of Superstar who travels the world, racks up championships and finally makes it to WWE. In fact, he did it all before his 23rd birthday, in just a short but sweet four-year career.
Theory is a study in rapid, meteoric ascent, appearing across Progress, EVOLVE and CMLL from 2017 to 2019, where he rubbed shoulders and threw hands with future NXT and WWE Superstars like Keith Lee, Lio Rush and Mark Andrews. In 2019, he defeated future NXT and NXT UK fixtures Roderick Strong and Fabian Aichner to win the EVOLVE Championship. So strong was Theory’s reputation that he signed with NXT while still holding that title. He’s only just begun to get his feet wet on the black-and-gold brand, but if history holds, he won’t take very long to learn the ropes. In fact, Theory stood out so much after his arrival that Zelina Vega chose him to join forces with Angel Garza to challenge for the Raw Tag Team Championship at WrestleMania 36.
By the time he’s 30, Austin Theory may well be running this place.
