Austin Theory On Being Slapped By Vince McMahon: "It Doesn't Get Bigger Than This"
A new protege
Vince McMahon appears to have found his latest pet project and the 76-year-old WWE chairman took Austin Theory under his wing on the November 29 edition of Monday Night Raw.
The pair initially appeared on-screen together the week prior after Theory revealed he was the Superstar who stole Cleopatra's egg. McMahon was ultimately impressed by Theory's honesty and invited Austin to watch Raw with him on Monday after giving a short update on his irritable bowel syndrome.
McMahon then taught Theory lessons throughout Raw before concluding that Austin should always expect the unexpected followed by a slap to the face from the chairman of the board.
Speaking about working with McMahon on After The Bell, Theory noted: "It doesn't get bigger than this."
"When you think wrestling, and Wrestling God, it's Vince McMahon. When I'm sitting there and talking to him, it's like, 'Wow, it doesn't get bigger than this.' I probably watched the video of getting slapped 100 times," Theory said.
Theory then described what the slap from McMahon was like, adding: "I would say, just don't upset Vince McMahon. He's got some hands."
If Theory can expect more slaps across the face from his boss remains to be seen.
