Will the theory undergo another WWE name change?

WWE Superstar Theory was forced to change his name after WrestleMania as his first name was removed as he was previously known and advertised as Austin Theory.

PWInsider is now reporting that Mr. Money in the Bank could be set to get his name back. According to a report via CageSideSeats, Theory is advertising under his full name for this weekend’s live events.

At the time of writing, it’s unclear if this is a bug or Theory has had its full name returned. The change could be a creative adjustment following Vince McMahon’s retirement from the company.

Why did Theory lose his first name on WWE TV?

Theory was known as “Austin Theory” until April of this year, when it was decided that in the future it would be known simply as Theory.

The former NXT Superstar used his real name. This apparently went against Vince McMahon’s edict that prevented former Indy stars from using their names or other stars from using their real names.

This affected many main roster superstars, including Pete Dunne, who re-debuted as Butch, and Tomasso Ciampa, who has since been known simply as Ciampa.

It is also possible that due to Stone Cold Steve Austin returning to WrestleMania, the company was pressuring him to make several more appearances and did not want to have two Austins on the show.

Theory has had some success since changing his name and is now Mr. Money in the Bank. Holding the coveted briefcase puts him in prime position to become World Champion in the near future.
