Report on how WWE plans to utilize Finn Balor and Austin Theory moving forward

As seen during the January 17th 2022 edition of WWE RAW, Austin Theory scored a clean victory over Finn Balor.

Paul Davis of noted that he was told the following from a source in regards to how WWE views Theory and Balor at this point…

“Finn was moved into the spot that Jeff Hardy had. He’s just there now to help get over the younger guys. There was a pitch to make him heel but that was weeks ago and I haven’t heard much about it since then. Vince never saw Finn as more than just a mid card guy. [Paul] Heyman would have pushed him to the moon but Vince just never saw it. Austin is going to get time to shine in the Rumble match. Last I heard was he will be in the final 4 or 5 at the end of the match.”
