Konnan recently discussed Austin Theory, the RAW Superstar who holds the coveted Money in the Bank briefcase, but still on a losing streak in WWE.
Theory was seen as the future of the company during the early stages of his main roster tenure. He even won the MITB bout and the United States Championship to solidify his place in WWE.
However, Theory has struggled on RAW with back-to-back defeats after former Chairman of WWE Vince McMahon resigned and Triple H took over.
On his podcast Keepin’ It 100, Konnan discussed how Theory lost to the recently-returned Johnny Gargano on WWE Raw last week.
The legend wrestler questioned whether Theory will soon be allowed to cash in his MITB briefcase, which might restore all of his credibility.
“Brother, he has been enduring a significant number of defeats, and this was a clean defeat, so I don’t know if Hunter doesn’t perceive the same way as Vince did. It’s my theory on Theory.”
“Even though they frequently engage in interruptions and disruptions, Gargano appeared to have won this fair and sqaure.”
“I’m not sure if they will have him cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase in so that he gets all of his gas back, but in the meantime, he will continue working like a jobber. Nevertheless, it appears that’s all he’s been doing ” told Konnan.

A few days back, Booker T also discussed Theory’s string of losses in WWE. However, he said that it was not something to worry about.
According to the erstwhile WCW Champ, even Triple H had to lose a number of matches in the initial stages of his career, therefore this is not a reason to be concerned.
“Just pause and consider this for a moment; Triple H was in the exact situation a long time ago. He was having so much potential back then.”
“They put him out there with the Warrior and he performed the job in how many seconds? I believe Austin Theory is in a similar position.”
“As a young man starting out and needing to learn the ropes in order to comprehend what this profession really is, truly and genuinely, I view Austin Theory in a similar situation to that of Hunter during the time when he was rising.”
