Austin Theory has been pushed strongly since returning to the main roster last year during the Draft as Vince McMahon is very high on the young star.
WrestleVotes reported today that a WWE source stated he anticipates bigger things in the future of Theory as the WWE Chairman sees him as a young John Cena, WWE’s biggest star since Steve Austin and The Rock.
“Now that his push is in full effect, source states he anticipates bigger & bigger things for Theory. A person with direct knowledge states Vince “sees a young John Cena in Theory” and will “give the kid everything he needs to be successful.”
Although Roman Reigns is the current top star in the company, McMahon is looking to make new top guys. As previously reported, Theory and Bron Breakker are two of the names that are being looked at by management as stars that can carry the company at some point.
When Cena was coming up, Batista was also being groomed as a top star. They both won their first World Titles at WrestleMania 21 as Cena beat JBL to become the WWE Champion while Batista defeated Triple H to become the World Heavyweight Champion.
Theory has previously stated that he looked up to Cena when he was growing up and would want to retire him.
