Reigning WWE United States Champion Theory is reportedly being considered as the next face of the company.
Theory has had a major push since returning to RAW last year and has shared screen time with Vince McMahon.
Speaking on the Out of Character podcast, Theory said talks have taken place with the WWE Chairman about being the next face of the company:
“I wanted him [McMahon] to know that this was never a second choice for me. This was always the only thing. Nothing against college or stuff like that, you can do that at anytime. For me, I never had a plan B. It was this or nothing. I was so heavy believing in myself at a very young age.
“Could this be the big build-up to get me ready for someone like John Cena? I’m gonna be honest, there are a lot of huge attractions, but I don’t think it gets any bigger than John Cena. Whether you’re a fan or not, you can’t deny his work ethic and what he’s done for WWE. To me, being in that position where I could possibly be the face, just thinking of how much work there is, it’s insane.”
Theory is rumored to face Cena at WWE SummerSlam 2022 on July 30.
