Austin Theory added to Team RAW at Survivor Series

Nov 15, 2021 - by Staff

Austin Theory has replaced Rey Mysterio on Team RAW at the WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view.

Tonight’s Survivor Series go-home edition of RAW saw Bobby Lashley defeat Mysterio in the main event. Rey was looking to get payback on Lashley for how he returned last week and defeated Dominik Mysterio, to take Dominik’s Team RAW spot. Adam Pearce watched the Rey vs. Lashley match from backstage and later announced that due to the well-being of Rey and Team RAW, he had to pull Rey from the team, with a replacement to be announced at a later date. Theory then hit the ring and dropped Dominik from behind with the ATL. Pearce was posing for a selfie as officials tended to Rey and Dominik when Pearce came back out to the stage. Pearce said he liked Theory’s style, and then named him as Rey’s Team RAW replacement.

The final RAW before Survivor Series went off the air with Theory posing for a selfie while officials tended to The Mysterios in the ring. Theory now joins Lashley, Finn Balor, Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins on the men’s Team RAW. They will face Drew McIntyre, Jeff Hardy, King Xavier Woods, Happy Baron Corbin and one final Superstar to be announced later this week.
