Hand it over. Winning a title can be the kind of change that makes all the difference in the world for a wrestler’s career. A wrestler becoming a champion for the first time often suggests that the promotion is moving them up to the next level and that there is some hope for your future. That being said, winning a title for the second time is an even more positive sign and that was the case this weekend.

This weekend at Survivor Series 2022, Austin Theory defeated Bobby Lashley and reigning champion Seth Rollins to become the United States Champion for the second time. Theory held the title for about two and a half months earlier this years, with Lashley and then Rollins taking it. The title win comes after Theory declared his intent to become more serious and violent.
It has been a road for Theory. Check out the title match and what Theory had to say after winning:
Opinion: This was the only result that made sense as there was no reason to have Theory make his big declaration about his future and then fall apart in the big match. Theory needed the win to move forward after his pretty weak time as Mr. Money In The Bank. Yes he has been here before, but this is a different Theory, which is what he needed to happen for a long time.
