In an exclusive interview on Wrestling Republic’s Soul Sessions, Former AEW Star Alan Angels has stated that Mr Money In The Bank Austin Theory always knew he would become a top WWE star.
Alan Angels, when asked on Wrestling Republic’s The Soul Sessions about his experience wrestling Austin Theory, stated;
“We actually started training together in 2016, he started maybe like four or five months before I did. So at the WWA4, in Atlanta, Georgia, we started training together, and he’s great, we wrestled multiple times, and he’s just one of those guys where he always knew, and would always talk about “I’m gonna do this” “I’m gonna be in the WWE” “I’m gonna be World Champion”.”
He went on to say;
“He just knew, you could hear it in his voice, obviously he was very determined and very passionate about it, but it wasn’t even like that, he knew it as a fact”
Austin Theory and Alan Angels trained and wrestled together at WWA4 in Atlanta, Georgia. Angels made his last appearance in December 2017, while Theory’s last appearance was in September 2018
Alan Angels then debuted in AEW in April 2020, before becoming a member of The Dark Order, being designated the number “five”.
He made his last appearance on an episode of AEW Dark, losing to Daniel Garcia in a Pure Rules Match.
Meanwhile, Austin Theory debuted in the Black & Gold brand, NXT, in August 2019. He had a brief run on Raw in Early 2020, however by June 2020, he was relegated back to NXT, joining a faction labelled “The Way”, alongside Johnny Gargano, Candice LeRae, Indi Hartwell, and then later, Dexter Lumis.
He would return to the main roster in the WWE Draft in October 2021.
WWE Chairman Mr McMahon has since taken Austin Theory under is wing, offering him on screen career advice.
