This superstar is none other than the newly crowned United States Champion, Austin Theory. While he already showed multiple signs of having an extended feud with Cena, there has been no confirmation.

But his actions at Survivor Series 2022 may be just the spark that Triple H is intending to leave for a part-time wrestling return for Cena in the future.

In a show-stopping match against two of the best Raw superstars right now, Seth Rollins and Bobby Lashley, Austin Theory picked up a surprise victory. As you might remember that Theory won the same title prior to this year.

After winning the title for the first time, he shouted it out loud that he was going to challenge Cena, but that didn’t happen last time. But he won it again and now the question remains, will Cena return?

Cause I don’t. I’m better than him! I’m gonna show each one of you, Seth Rollins, Bobby Lashley, you’re all the same. And me? I’m going straight to the damn top.
