Former champion claims to be the reason behind the crowd reaction to The Rock’s return on WWE SmackDown

    A former champion recently claimed to be the reason why The Rock received such a loud reaction during his return on WWE SmackDown.

    Last week on the blue brand, Austin Theory and Pat McAfee had a confrontation in the ring. Before things could escalate further, The Rock shocked the fans with his return.

    In classic Rock fashion, he made fun of Austin Theory, which prompted the former United States Champion to attack him. However, The Great One was able to take out Theory with a people’s elbow. Pat McAfee also hit his version of the people’s elbow.

    Following his return, The Brahma Bull took to social media to thank the fans for the warm reception. However, Theory replied to the Hollywood megastar and claimed to be the reason he received such a huge reaction.

    “I’m so grateful and humble that I could give you the loudest crowd reaction of all time. Also I don’t need you to tell me how talented I am I already know that. – Your favorite A-hole #AllDay #AustinTheoryLive

    Theory beat John Cena earlier this year at WrestleMania 39. Hence, a match against The Great One within the same year could be a huge deal for the former United States Champion.
