Austin Theory Discusses His Time Working With Seth Rollins

Once again, Theory's time in a group on the main roster was short as he left the group and returned to NXT in June.

Speaking on Table Talk, Theory discussed what he was able to learn for Seth Rollins during his short stint with "The Messiah."

"It was great," he said. "Any experience with someone higher up is always really good. It was a crazy time, how we were filming stuff so randomly, I knew I was doing WrestleMania, but it didn't seem like it because everything was going so fast. Wednesday, we're filming Raw, Thursday, we're filming WrestleMania, and it was 'boom, boom, boom.' It was, 'Hey, you're not in this group anymore, you're with Seth Rollins now.' Just getting to sit there and watch. He was always cool. Anytime I have a question or wanted to ask, he was always there and giving advice, but it was such a busy time and everybody was on their toe's and we were in the work mindset and constantly like 'let's get this done and do this.' It wasn't like how it would be being back on the road where we know what we're doing on Monday, Friday, and Sunday. (With a set schedule), there is more time to learn from somebody. I feel like if I did have more time with him, there would be more that I would learn. It was such a hectic time, but the experience was great. I wouldn't ever skip that moment and I'm a strong believer in everything happening for a reason. It was a great experience."

Once he went back to NXT, Theory joined another group, finding family with Johnny Gargano, Candice LeRae, and Indi Hartwell in The Way.

As for Rollins, he is currently set to compete in the Men's Money in the Bank ladder match on Sunday. You can view the full lineup for WWE Money in the Bank by clicking here.
