WWE Star Reacts To Praise From Randy Orton

WWE Star Reacts To Praise From Randy Orton WWE

Following Randy Orton naming him the next breakout star, WWE star Austin Theory says he appreciates his praise.

Randy Orton is considered one of the most respected veterans on the WWE roster, so his approval and praise is something many of the young stars seek.

In a new interview with Adam Glyn, Orton listed names as WWE’s next breakout star with Austin Theory receiving the most praise.

During a recent interview on the Battleground Podcast, Austin Theory was asked about Randy Orton saying he’s keeping an eye out on him as a potential future megastar in WWE. He answered:

“Well, I know a thing about killing legends myself,”

“It’s Randy Orton. I mean, what has Randy Orton not done in WWE? A 14-time WWE Champion, a man with just a crazy resume and somebody that everyone in the locker room well respects.”

“Anytime you get words like that from Randy Orton, you better make sure you’re working and you’re pushing yourself because he ain’t wrong about anything he said.”

“He’s speaking the truth, and it is on my end to hold up that end. I appreciate what Randy said and this is just where my mentality is.”

Sending a warning to Orton on him and Kevin Owens potentially challenging him and his partner Grayson Waller for the WWE Tag Team Championships, Theory said:

“Coming down the road, if Randy’s there, I won’t have any sympathy, though.”

“Because, these Tag Team Championships — I know he likes running around with Kevin Owens, if they decide to come our way, Just remember Randy what you said. Remember all those things you said.”

“Because you said you weren’t where you were at when you were my age. So just remember that.”

Austin Theory and Grayson Waller, better known as A Town Down Under, are the current WWE Tag Team Champions on Friday Night SmackDown.
