• The Next John Cena In WWE Revealed
Anyone that has watched RAW over the past few months knows that Austin Theory, now known as just Theory, is ‘the chosen one’.
Soon after debuting on the WWE main roster last year, Vince McMahon took Theory under his wing, appearing in multiple segments with him and even taking selfies with him.
Theory defeated Finn Balor on last week’s RAW to win the United States Championship. This makes Theory (age 24) the youngest US Champion in WWE history.
According to Wrestlevotes, Vince sees a young John Cena in Theory:
“Now that his push is in full effect, source states he anticipates bigger & bigger things for Theory.
A person with direct knowledge states Vince sees a young John Cena in Theory and will give the kid everything he needs to be successful.”
Will Theory be the next Face of WWE after Roman Reigns? We’ll find that out in the next few years for sure.
