Theory: “I ultimately want to defend the United States Championship against John Cena”

Theory was this week’s guest on “After The Bell” where he discussed his quick rise in the WWE, how much Finn Balor has helped him, and being compared to John Cena.

Theory was asked if he thought he would be so hot this early in his WWE career:

“I always knew that I would achieve a lot because I was so dedicated at a young age to getting to WWE, but the details of what’s happened since December, of course I couldn’t see that exactly.”

“But just how crazy the events have been that have really catapulted me from where I was in December to where I am now, I did not see that happening. But it’s awesome,” he said.

Theory talking about how much Finn Balor has helped him:

“When it comes to live events, I’ve worked with Finn the most on live events,” Theory shared.

“Man, that dude has helped me so much. Just the knowledge and understanding of not having to do this or do this at this time and listen is cool.”

“MVP is somebody that’s a heavy influence on me. He always gives me heavy words of wisdom. He’s very good at motivating me, but at the same time, if I ever have a question or just curious about something, that’s definitely somebody I can go to.”

On being compared to John Cena:

“It’s just wild. That’s who got me into WWE. At first, I wasn’t crazy about sports entertainment. But I think I was just attached to that character, John Cena, and how it motivated me.”

“Now to see that come to light and interact with me where I’m at in my career, it’s just amazing, especially what he did say on Twitter. I just thought that it was very interesting, but at the same time very motivating. So I’m very grateful for that.”

“You know, it’s WWE. We never know what could happen. I feel like we do have a feeling what could happen pretty soon though.”

Theory was asked what he would like to do next:

“I ultimately want to defend the United States Championship against John Cena.”
