Booker T appeared on the Hall of Fame podcast recently and discussed Theory’s ability to cash in on the contract. Booker stated that if the scenario is perfect, Theory could beat anyone, even Roman Reigns, and that if a guy is unconscious, he will undoubtedly lose the Championship. Theory, according to Booker T, is not one of those men who would lose after cashing in the contract.

“He could beat Roman [Reigns], he could beat anybody on the card if the situation is right,” Booker T said on “The Hall of Fame” podcast. “I mean, if a person is unconscious when I cash-in, who loses? Exactly, so you just go to know — if you book it properly, Theory, he’s not going to be one of the guys who got the briefcase and didn’t cash it in and win it. I just don’t see that happening. This kid got way too much upside for something like that to happen.”

Theory confronted Lashley on the latest edition of RAW and said that the United States Championship match would be rescheduled for SummerSlam, the match has been confirmed by WWE, and Lashley’s Championship would be at stake.
