Corey Graves Furious About Austin Theory's Failed WWE Money In The Bank Cash-In

Graves was not happy with how the failed cash-in unfolded

WWE commentator Corey Graves is not happy with Austin Theory's failed cash-in attempt from last week's episode of Raw. 

Theory became just the fifth person in history to fail to successfully cash-in the Money in the Bank briefcase when he lost to United States Champion Seth Rollins (with help from Bobby Lashley) in an impromptu match at the end of the show. 

Speaking on his After the Bell podcast, Graves let it be known that he thought it was a poor creative decision: 

"I'm furious with how it all played out. I was furious as it was unfolding before our very eyes... as a real human being and as an on-air character, Seth Freaking Rollins and Austin Theory are two of my favourites. I think the world of Austin Theory and I truly believe what Mr. McMahon was saying six months ago — that this guy could be the guy. And I understand that things change and, you know, the path, everything has changed."

Theory has frequently lost matches since Paul 'Triple H' Levesque took over as WWE's head of creative, following McMahon's retirement. 

Though he was upset with the failed cash-in, Graves looked at the bigger picture when it comes to Theory's situation:

"Let it play out. Austin Theory didn't get fired. Austin Theory didn't get beaten and thrown into a dumpster and pushed off the stage. Austin Theory didn't have a limousine explode... if Theory doesn't do something massive between now and Survivor Series, maybe it's time to worry."

With only twelve days before now and Survivor Series, Theory better get a move on...
