Things with Austin Theory could be more serious than initially believed.
As we reported last week here at eWrestling.com after the news was first broken on Twitter by Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Theory has been off of television in recent weeks because he has been suspended by WWE.
Meltzer wrote via Twitter on August 3rd that Theory has been off of WWE TV due to an "unannounced suspension of sorts."
While specific details are still not very clear, the situation involving Theory could be more serious than originally believed, according to an update reported on Saturday by Lennard Surrao of Sportskeeda.com.
Regarding the Theory situation and "unannounced suspension of sorts" reports, Surrao shared the following update from Tom Colohue (@Colohue) of the Dropkick DiSKussions podcast (full podcast embedded below):
"This is a situation that is very much personal to Austin Theory. There is a lot of moving parts to it. So I have to be careful with what I say. He has been gone a while with no mention because to put it simply; the WWE still aren’t sure whether he will have a job by the end of it. However, it could be that he simply comes back, gets back on TV even as early as two weeks from now and it all be forgotten about. There are many possible outcomes; at the moment, he is suspended."
It's worth noting that Austin Theory was one of the many WWE Superstars accused of sexual misconduct during the #SpeakingOut movement.
Whether or not this is the reason he has been taken off of television remains to be seen, however based on the reports making the rounds, as well as many of the details and comments being made, one could very well find themselves drawing such a conclusion.
