It’s a good reason. There is no one as powerful or influential in the wrestling world as Vince McMahon. After several decades in charge of WWE, McMahon is still the force in wrestling and someone who can change someone’s career in the blink of an eye. That is what he might be doing again with a younger star who has not been around long but already has a hit on his hands.

Austin Theory and Vince McMahon have interacted over the last two weeks on Monday Night Raw. On the November 22 edition, Theory revealed that he stole Cleopatra’s egg from McMahon and received a WWE Title match as a result. On November 29, Theory and McMahon watched the show together in McMahon’s office. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, this is due to Theory’s WWE Title match against Big E. being a hit, including with teenage viewers.

Theory could be the next big thing. Check out what he has been up to:

Opinion: This is one of those things that could go either way. It is great to see Theory getting this kind of a chance, but at the same time, McMahon’s handpicked stars can have a tendency to go south in a hurry. I’m hoping that it is the former in this case, as Theory really does seem like someone who has all kinds of potential. Said potential won’t matter if the fans don’t care though, and it is nice to see WWE giving it a shot like this.

What do you think of Theory? How will the McMahon segments help? Let us know in the comments below.
