The reigning SmackDown star has been unstoppable, defending his gold against formidable opponents like Bobby Lashley, Seth Rollins, Edge, and John Cena, with a recent triumph against Sheamus on SmackDown, thanks to a well-timed interference by Pretty Deadly.
A picture of Austin Theory with his prized United States Championship was recently posted on Twitter. He claimed to be the biggest superstar to have held the championship in the caption, mentioning that he has been the champion for 185 days.

In a memorable comeback on RAW a few months ago, the Leader of the Cenation, John Cena, encountered Theory, who boldly challenged him for a title bout at The Grandest Stage of Them All. Cena’s scorching promo on the champion showcased his fierce determination, ultimately accepting the challenge. Recently, on Notsam Wrestling, Cena disclosed the backstage words he shared with Austin Theory before their electric segment, fueling the anticipation for their clash.
John Cena said, “Fans can see through the BS if you don’t believe in your character. It’s what I said to Austin Theory, ‘Dude, you are young, you are athletic, you will work for this company, you’ll do interviews, you’ll go X, Y, and Z. I don’t believe what you do when you’re out there, I don’t. I said it to him personally before I said it publicly” (an article from sporstkeeda.com reported)
