• Backstage News On Who Called Up Austin Theory To The WWE Main Roster

After United States Champion Andrade got injured and got taken out of the RAW Tag Team Championship match at WrestleMania 36, he was replaced by NXT wrestler Austin Theory.

According to the Wrestling Observer, RAW Executive Director Paul Heyman made the decision to call up Theory to the WWE main roster.

Original plan was for Theory to only be a substitute for Andrade in the title match at WrestleMania 36, but he ended up impressing WWE officials with his performance and is now a permanent member of the RAW roster.

On this week’s episode of RAW, Theory defeated Akira Tozawa. He’ll now face Aleister Black in a Money In The Bank qualifying match on next week’s RAW.
