The WWE Universe took to social media to share their thoughts on the old photo of Austin Theory with Gigi Dolin that is going viral.
Prior to joining WWE, Austin Theory was a major star on the independent circuit. The former United States Champion performed for Evolve Wrestling from 2017 to 2019.
He made his debut for the promotion against Darby Allin and soon acquired the AEW star’s ex-wife Gigi Dolin (fka Priscilla Kelly) as his valet. Gigi was instrumental in Theory’s rise to stardom on the independent circuit.
Recently, Twitter user @WrestlinRealest posted some old photos of the pair before they moved to the Stamford-based promotion, exposing their on-screen relationship.
Fans were left stunned by the revelation that both the current stars were once together. Many people shared their views in the reply section.
@WrestlinRealest yeah tbh it was really really cool. He kept losing and it woke up the animal in him. That’s how he broke through and became a star!!
While Theory joins the Stamford-based promotion in 2019, Gigi arrives in 2021. She is currently a part of the NXT roster and is part of Mandy Rose’s Toxic Charm.
Austin Theory has been showing a new side to WWE lately
Austin Theory experienced tremendous growth in WWE during his second stint on the main roster. Vince McMahon took the youngster under his wing, with the then WWE Chairman taking on the role of Theory’s on-screen mentor.
Theory soon defeated Finn Balor to become the youngest United States Champion in company history. He lost the title to Bobby Lashley after a short run. However, that same night, he won the Money in the Bank ladder match, making him the youngest Superstar to win an MITB contract.
After several failed attempts to cash in on Roman Reigns, Theory decided to take on Seth Rollins for the United States Championship. However, his plans were foiled by Bobby Lashley as he eliminated the 25-year-old after the bell, allowing Rollins to retain the title.
Since failing to cash in on the Money in the Bank contract, Austin Theory has displayed a newfound aggression. The former NXT star said that he has made a deal for the future of the company and now his time has come. He even defeated Dolph Ziggler in a singles match last week.
