The All Mighty is coming for Theory’s United States Championship at WWE Money in the Bank!
Theory may be self-centered and selfie obsessed (and believe us, he is that), but Mr. McMahon’s hand-picked protégé is all business from bell to bell. He possesses a full arsenal and a win-at-any-cost attitude that has proved very effective since he captured the United States Title.
Angering Bobby Lashley, however, is not wise no matter what kind of streak you’re enjoying. After refusing to give The All Mighty a title opportunity, Theory was quite literally kicked out of the ring with tremendous force by the former WWE Champion.
When Lashley beat him in the first-ever Theory Invitational Pose-Down, the nefarious titleholder blinded his adversary by squirting lotion in his eyes and knocked him out of the ring with a dropkick.
Fueled by fury, Lashley reemerged to blind Theory the following week and hit him with an earth-shattering Spear of retribution before going on to defeat Chad Gable, Otis and Theory himself in a Gauntlet Match to finally earn the right to challenge for the U.S. Title at WWE Money in the Bank.

Since making his shocking return to Monday Night Raw Mustafa Ali has done nothing but jump through hoops to get his opportunity at Theory and his United States Championship.
After rolling up The Miz in his return match, the A-Lister and Mr. McMahon’s prized protégé have undermined Ali at every turn. First by joining forces to gang up on Ali in a 2-on-1 Handicap Championship Contender’s Match, then by abusing his power to make The Miz a special guest referee in bouts against Ciampa and Veer Mahaan.
Despite the odds, Ali did not let up in his pursuits for Theory and the United States Title finally earning his one-on-one match after Theory jumped Ali in a title opportunity match for the disqualification victory. After thoroughly pummeling Ali, Theory granted him his title match right then and there, picking up a fairly quick, if not controversial, victory. WWE Official Adam Pearce soon revealed, however, that WWE Chairman himself Mr. McMahon believed that Theory should defend his title against Ali in a fair fight at WWE Hell in a Cell.
Can Ali teach Mr. McMahon’s protégé a lesson in determination or will Theory come up with a new scheme to retain his title?
Find out at WWE Hell in a Cell, streaming live on Sunday, June 5, at 8 ET/5 PT on Peacock in the United States and on WWE Network everywhere else.

Theory looks to bring United States Title back to Mr. McMahon in showdown with Finn Bálor
Theory has once again used his mentor’s pull to secure a title opportunity, receiving a United States Championship Match with Finn Bálor on Monday Night Raw.
Theory has scored back-to-back pinfalls on the United States Champion in a pair of chaotic Six-Man Tag Team Matches but has yet to defeat Bálor in singles action with their previous meeting ending in a disqualification thanks to Damian Priest’s interference.
Can Mr. McMahon’s golden boy become just that after dethroning Bálor for the United States Title? Tune in to Monday Night Raw at 8/7 C on USA to find out!
Pat McAfee will return to the squared circle on WrestleMania Sunday against a dangerous Superstar looking to prove himself to Mr. McMahon, Austin Theory!
During his first live interview in 15 years on “The Pat McAfee Show,” WWE Chairman Mr. McMahon personally invited McAfee to compete at The Showcase of the Immortals, responding to the former NFL player’s tremendous connection to the WWE Universe.
McAfee first left his mark in a WWE ring when he made a series of memorable appearances in NXT. This included his fearless showing inside the unforgiving double steel structure of NXT TakeOver WarGames 2020. Since putting his gear on the shelves, the outspoken personality has endeared himself to fans as the color commentator on Friday Night SmackDown.
McAfee did not have to wait long to find out his opponent. Just one night after Mr. McMahon’s offer was extended, Austin Theory emerged to belittle the SmackDown commentator. After claiming that the WWE Chairman was simply setting up McAfee to get beat up at The Show of Shows, Theory informed him that he was his WrestleMania opponent. He then promised to beat McAfee to a pulp and slapped the headset right off his head.
