According to Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE is dropping Austin Theory’s selfie gimmick. Theory did not have his phone with him during any of his three appearances this week on Monday Night Raw, when he was being presented as a more serious wrestler. He is also set for a feud with Seth Rollins, possibly with a match coming up between the two at Survivor Series.

Theory had a big night. Check out what he was up to this week:

Opinion: This is one of those changes that Theory probably does need to make if he is going to be elevated to the next level. At the end of the day, the selfie deal was a good idea but it is also the kind of thing that does not have the best shelf life. Theory has all of the skills that he is going to need so turning him more serious is the right way to go to make him a bigger deal. Now just get everything else right, which is the harder part.

What do you think of the idea? How far can Theory go in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
