Waller Reacts To Theory’s Confrontation With Journalist, 2024 Elimination Chamber Card



WWE is currently in Perth, Western Australia, for the 2024 Elimination Chamber pay-per-view event this Saturday at Optus Stadium. The event has four matches, with two chamber matches scheduled.

In a discussion with Austin Theory, The West Australian’s editor-in-chief, Anthony De Ceglie, called wrestling “fake,” leading to a staged “altercation” between the two men.

Theory’s ally, Grayson Waller, who had his own confrontation with an Australian morning show host last month, tweeted,

“Might need to organise a Tag Match soon

A Town Down Under vs Dumb Aussie ‘journos’”

Meanwhile, during an interview with The West Sport, Austin Theory took credit for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s return to WWE.

Theory believes that The Rock was inspired by their encounter in the ring on the September 15th, 2023 episode of SmackDown that ended with the former United States Champion taking the People’s Elbow.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On what it felt like being in the ring with Rock: “I guess you really have to ask the Rock what that felt like. He went out there with Austin Theory, and i was out there with Pat McAfee doing my own thing, but The Rock came out because The Rock wants to be popular again. He got 150 million views with Austin Theory, at the time. It’s probably like 200, 300 million now. For me, it was just another day at work but for The Rock, look what it’s done for him. I mean, it promoted him to being with the board of directors at TKO. He’s really inspired by me. He’s done a lot of things and look at him now. There’s a whole bunch of controversy that he stole Cody’s story. Am I responsible for that? I mean, I did inspire The Rock. Austin Theory inspired The Rock. You hear that? We all know it, we all know it.”

On if he was nervous about the segment: “I was just nervous that Dwayne would feel like he was just so overshadowed by me. I was thinking he would feel that. But, I went out there and made him feel like somebody, I made him feel special and I think that’s what got his feet under him again and now he wants to come back and play WWE superstar. That’s the thing, he wants to play WWE Superstar, Austin Theory lives being a WWE superstar. There was no room for nerves. Rock got to come be a part of Austin Theory Live, on my show, SmackDown — and I put him in his place. I told the whole world, it doesn’t matter what the Rock says. It doesn’t.”

It was announced at Thursday’s WWE Elimination Chamber: Perth Kickoff event that Asuka and Kairi Sane will defend the Women’s Tag Team Titles against Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell on the pre-show for the pay-per-view event.
