Buying or Selling the Latest on CM Punk, Drew McIntyre’s Contract and More WWE Rumors | News, Scores, Highlights, Stats, and Rumors
Austin Theory and Grayson Waller are two of the most interesting names in pro wrestling right now.
The former just had a huge run as United States champion and was repeatedly in a spot to rub shoulders with the likes of The Rock, while the latter has had his own “show” and rubbed shoulders with the likes of John Cena and Edge.
According to Fightful Select (h/t Ortman), WWE officials view both guys as having “high upside” for the future.
And in the case of Waller, that might just be true, although he is 33 years old already. It feels like it could be a sell on Theory, though, based on the idea that perhaps he’s already peaked. WWE badly mismanaged his time with the Money in the Bank briefcase, and the irrelevance of the U.S. title even after he dropped it hasn’t done him any favors.
The writeup did mention Baron Corbin when referring to Theory, which isn’t the worst role in the world to have in a company like WWE. Corbin is greatly trusted to be put in big spots but not actually spotlighted—his biggest feats with the company have also been winning a briefcase and the U.S. title a single time.
