Theory Wins The United States Title – After several months of trying to impress Vince McMahon, Austin Theory (now known as Theory) has won the WWE United States Champion. Theory defeated Finn Balor to win the title on tonight’s RAW.
After the match, Theory celebrated in the ring with some of the heel roster and then he went to the stage to celebrate with McMahon.
Theory is being pushed as the next big star and Vince McMahon reportedly believes that he can be the next John Cena. Theory is on a similar path as John Cena. When Cena started in WWE, he lost matches on TV for months and was eventually booked to win the United States Title, which was considered a stepping stone to the World Championship.
This is Theory’s first title reign on the main roster. Balor began his first reign back on the February 28 RAW show by defeating Damian Priest. He held the strap for 48 recognized days. Balor won the title from Damian Priest back on the February 28 RAW, and while he has defended the title at non-televised WWE live events, this was his first TV title defense.
