Austin Theory: Bio
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 he was 23, in just a short but sweet four years.
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 before quickly moving to Raw and briefly joining forces with Zelina Vega, Andrade and Angel Garza. After being booted from their ranks, Theory was quickly recruited by Seth Rollins as The Monday Night Messiah's newest disciple.
Now back in NXT, Theory continues to ascend. By the time he’s 30, Austin Theory may well be running this place.
