A new report has claimed that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon will give current Raw star Austin Theory a huge push at the upcoming Royal Rumble.
In recent weeks, Austin Theory has been involved in several backstage segments with Vince McMahon on Raw. Their relationship began when McMahon made a rare appearance at Survivor Series in November with Cleopatra’s golden egg.
When the egg went missing, it turned out that Austin Theory had absconded with it to grab a selfie with the priceless object. Since then, it seems that McMahon has taken a shine to Theory and was the one who revealed that he would have a spot in the men’s 2022 Royal Rumble match.
Now, a report from WrestlingNews.co has claimed a WWE source has indicated that the match will be a massive opportunity for Theory as he will be there until near the end of the bout.
“Austin [Theory] 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.”
Current SkyBet have WWE Champion Brock Lesnar as the favourite to win the match, with Big E also a possibility. AJ Styles and Omos are the joint third favourites to secure their place in the main event of WrestleMania 38.
