Why Austin Theory Returned On NXT; Backstage News On Investigation

WWE’s internal investigation into allegations of inappropriate conduct by Austin Theory has been concluded and Theory returned to WWE NXT on August 26.

Before the #SpeakingOut movement, Theory had been set for a big push on Raw, but WWE decided that after all of the controversy, it was best to bring Theory back with a soft return.

Theory had been accused on social media by an underage girl of sending inappropriate messages of a sexual nature on Snapchat back in 2018. The accuser admitted she did not have the alleged messages saved.

WWE concluded there was no evidence a crime had been committed and Theory has been allowed to return. There is some concern that other accusers could come forward at some point, so the company was uncomfortable bringing Theory back with an immediate big push on one of the main rosters.
