WWE Superstar Theory's name modification will not affect his rise to the top, based on Booker T.The WWE RAW Superstar's ring name was altered from Austin Theory to Theory on last week's program. The young superstar has actually utilized the Austin Theory name for a long period of time, returning to his tenure with EVOLVE way back in 2016.
While speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T stated that Theory would not be harmed by the elimination of his given name on WWE television. He thinks that the RAW Superstar will grow despite his name.
" Well, simply think of it for a second - the way he did it, it was sort of smooth. He said, 'Mr. McMahon thinks that the Austin thing is just not working for me.' We've got Steve Austin returning and after that we got Austin Theory - it's a mix-up there a bit. I do not see anything wrong with it, simply calling him Theory. I like Austin Theory [name], though, too.
I do comprehend why we don't want to have 2 people walking around with the same name. Even though Steve Austin is not going to be around on a regular basis or anything like that, I get it, I comprehend it. Is it something I would've done, as far as altering the name? I don't know. I doubt it. I don't know, maybe. It's one of those things," said Booker.
"I don't think it's going to hurt that man since Austin's talent. Simply enjoying what he does on a weekly basis, for me, I'm enjoying a young kid who understands the game. There's not many that comprehends the video game," said Booker T.
The legend thinks that Theory is discovering the ropes to getting to the top position in the business.
Why did WWE change the names of different super stars?
A current report has actually disclosed that Vince McMahon does not want his company's super stars to use their ring name in another promo if they leave the business.
The report claims that WWE Superstars will not be able to use their real names, even if it is just their given names.
This rule, obviously, excludes popular stars like Brock Lesnar, Cody Rhodes, and even the brand-new signee Gable Steveson, who is widely known thanks to his Gold Medal in men's freestyle wrestling at the 2020 Olympics.
