Speaking on AEW Unrestricted, AR Fox, a current AEW star who previously who trained Theory, weighed in on Theory’s current WWE run:
“We talk all the time and it’s just mind blowing. He’s happy to be there. It’s crazy. He got me front row tickets to his Mania match against Pat McAfee and he ended up getting a stunner by Stone Cold.
“We stood outside one arena where WrestleMania was being held one year and took a picture, and like five years later, he was on of the big billboards on that same arena. I’m just too proud. It’s just crazy.
“We still talk a lot and it’s always exciting when we talk. I’m kind of amazed because I knew he would do good, but he is doing really good. Main events, long main events where he’s in control of top guys and beating them up.
“I’m just like, you know, that’s pretty crazy if you think about it, and he’s closing segments a lot. Like, this is crazy.”
Theory will defend the US Championship in an Elimination Chamber match at this weekend’s premium live event.
