Austin Theory says he didn’t know Vince was Wrestling at WrestleMania 38 until night before

Vince McMahon wrestling Pat McAfee at WrestleMania 38 was very unexpected. Vince at a age of 70+ gave a phenomenal performance and eventually won the match, but Stone Cold spoiled the Vince celebration.

Austin Theory was in the latest episode Busted Open Radio where he talked about Vince McMahon, WWE, WrestleMania and more.

Austin Theory on working with Vince at WrestleMania 38

“The egg started everything. I just heard, ‘Mr. McMahon wants to film this segment with an egg.’ I heard about it, it was him arriving with the egg and the story was somebody stole the egg. Literally, that day they were like, ‘You stole the egg.’ ‘I stole the egg, alright.’ We filmed the segment with Vince and I was super nervous for that. ‘I stole the egg? $100 million egg? Alright.’ I’m trying to figure all this out and it’s my first thing with Vince. It was almost like anytime we filmed anything, it felt so fast. We’d do it and that would be it. Onto the next one. Especially, WrestleMania was interesting because we had no idea if we were going to have Vince in the match until like the night before. I remember that day showing up, I met Stone Cold for the first time. ‘Hey, how’s it going, Austin, nice to meet you.’ ‘Hey, nice to meet you, I’ll be seeing you later tonight.’ He got on the golf cart and kept driving. ‘What is going on?’ I got to Gorilla, he told me the business, that’s it. Went out there and he gave me that look,” (H/T: Fightful)
