Austin Theory Comments On United States Championship Victory, Changes To His Current Character

Moments after defeating Bobby Lashley and Seth 'Freakin' Rollins at Saturday's Survivor Series Wargames Premium Live Event, new WWE United States Champion Austin Theory spoke with BT Sport, and discussed the "emotions" he felt in Boston. Check out the highlights below.

On winning the WWE United States Championship:

“It was a lot of emotions, I’d say. Being out there, you know, all the fans of Boston, Massachusetts going crazy. And being in the ring with Seth Freaking Rollins, being in there with Bobby Lashley, two names that are so well-known in the WWE. And me, you know, on the come up of going to be one of those top guys — this right here just puts that next stamp on that for me, and moves me up that ladder. So it’s — man, it just kind of blows my mind that I’m a two-time United States Champion. That’s awesome.”

On his current character shift:

“Yeah, I’d say it’s as wild as it has been for everybody else. You know, you go from being so used to something to a quick switch, and pretty much that quick switch changes everything. But for a good way, I feel like because for me, it was a chance for Austin Theory to evolve and go to that next level. And you know, I can’t take selfies forever and be a goofball. So it’s like finding that next chapter and what’s gonna get me to become a world champion, and I think we’re on the right track.”
