Austin Theory comments on working with Vince McMahon and facing Pat McAfee at Wrestlemania 38
In an interview with TVInsider.com, Austin Theory commented on working with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon…
“For me, there has always been the stigma of Vince McMahon that he is not nice or one-way about stuff. That it’s his way or no way. From what I’ve seen and my experience, he is on another level. All the hats he wears. He is so invested in everybody and somehow makes everything work. I think that’s so crazy to see him doing it for that long and staying that sharp. If I have a question or see anybody have a question, and they want to talk to him, they always get an answer. They always get a conversation. I think that is so cool to really see the passion he still has for what he does. It hasn’t left him at all. For me personally, it is cool to know this man’s a billionaire and still working like he has a grand in his bank account.”
Theory also said the following regarding his upcoming match against Pat McAfee at Wrestlemania 38 and the pressure to deliver in a high-profile situation…
“Whether you are prepared or not, it’s going to show. You are swimming with sharks. I think there is no level after WWE. This is it. For me, I don’t get too much into my head. I’m pretty confident in what I can do. You can only be the best version of yourself. That’s where I keep my head. Who knows how this finally ends? I’m just excited. I expect the unexpected. I’m coming in with my head up and staying confident.”
WWE’s Austin Theory on His ‘WrestleMania’ Showdown With Pat McAfee
Austin Theory is getting an opportunity of a lifetime sitting under the learning tree of Vince McMahon. Over the past few months, the WWE kingpin has taken an interest in the 24-year-old protege. One could liken it to Yoda and Luke Skywalker. Or maybe more Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine?
