As seen on this week’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw from the BOK Center in Tulsa, OK, Austin Theory scored a clean pin over Finn Balor in just 6 minutes.
Paul Davis of WrestlingNews.co reports someone in WWE stated there are no long-term plans for Balor as a top star in the company. It was added that Vince McMahon is high on Theory and thinks he will become a main eventer within the next year.
The source stated, “Yea, Finn was moved into the spot that Jeff Hardy had. He’s just there now to help get over the younger guys. There was a pitch to make him heel but that was weeks ago and I haven’t heard much about it since then. Vince never saw Finn as more than just a mid card guy. Heyman would have pushed him to the moon but Vince just never saw it. 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.”
