Austin Theory comments on spot with Kevin Owens and Randy Orton that was criticized by WWE fans

As seen during the March 15th 2024 edition of WWE Smackdown, Kevin Owens gave Austin Theory a stunner. Theory then jumped into the air and was hit with an RKO. The spot received some criticism online due to the timing being off. Twitter/X user @luisrha wrote that Theory “is usually a good seller but this was rough” while @cm_slagle wrote that it was “too much of an obvious jump.”

Theory commented on the spot in a video that was shared to his Twitter/X account…

“What do you mean what happened? I mean, the Stunner, I was dizzy, but then the RKO… I keep getting hit with these RKOs, so what did I think? Maybe I was a little dizzy, but, I thought I could just jump over it after the Stunner, but that didn’t work out.”
