SmackDown Superstar Austin Theory has received a strong push on the WWE main roster.

He won the United States Championship, Money In The Bank contract and defeated John Cena at WrestleMania earlier this year. He also successfully defended the United States Championship against WWE Hall of Famer Edge earlier this year.

Theory has been very active and has had 65 matches so far in 2023. Meanwhile, World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins has had 63 matches so far.

Speaking on WWE’s After The Bell podcast, Theory said that he’s the actual workhorse of WWE, despite fans giving Rollins the title of the workhorse of the promotion.

“To me, it’s almost crazy being told that I don’t believe in myself. When clearly, let’s use John [Cena] for example, I’ve seen John Cena, he was in the middle of the ring on RAW, and look where I am? I got to Monday Night RAW. I’m on SmackDown now. How are you gonna tell me that I didn’t believe in myself? Who is 26 years old that’s done the things that I’ve done in the WWE? And people always have something to say.

I mean, let’s take it back to the Money In The Bank contract. When I lost that, my career was over, and then look what I did. I had the greatest United States Championship run of all time. And if I decide to go and grab that title again, then I will, but maybe I’m focused on the ‘Head of the Table’? Maybe the workhorse Seth Rollins?

That’s a funny one too, calling him the workhorse, but look at how many times I defended the United States Championship. Look up how many matches Austin Theory has had in 2023. I’m sure it’s more than Seth Rollins.

But those are the things that people don’t wanna realize because they know how great I am.”

Theory is set to challenge Rey Mysterio for the United States Championship in the future, likely at the Payback premium live event.
