Wheel of Fortune fans are shocked by the special guest’s outfit choice and believe it will lead to Pat Sajak’s “retirement.”

WHEEL of Fortune fans had to grapple with a WWE star’s decision to leave his shirt fully open on Tuesday.

Shirtless Austin Theory and his partner Ray won and will advance to the finals of the week-long special.

Wheel of Fortune hits the mat this week with a special WWE tournament.

Three regular players will be paired with pro wrestlers each night, and the top three teams will go head-to-head on Friday.

Tonight, Bianca Belair, Austin and Sonya Deville were paired with three non-wrestlers.

Austin left viewers feeling personally offended as he went shirtless for the popular game show from start to finish.

Ray and Austin got the first toss-up puzzle, to which Pat, 76, said: “You scared me there for a moment.”

Austin revealed during his interview that he was the youngest US Champion “in WWE history” and held up his belt.

“People say my confidence might get in the way of things,” he told the camera, while his short-sleeved shirt revealed his entire torso.

“Some people would call you cocky, but you’re just confident. You will win, Mr. Confidence?” asked Pat.

“All day, of course!” Austin said.

Austin and his tag teammate won with the highest score of $24.5k, choosing “What are you Doing” for the bonus round.

Despite not missing out on $40,000 in Making a Wild Comeback, they will advance to Friday’s finals.

For 40 years, the host politely stood by and let them know they would be back.


The internet was stunned by the winning team’s riddles, but puzzled as to why the wrestling star couldn’t tune in for syndicated television.

Even if Austin goes shirtless in WWE, it’s a different ballgame (aside from Pat Sajak “tangling” a contestant last week), and the internet erupted.

One Twitter user wrote: “So why does this guy feel the need to keep his shirt open? I guess he thinks he looks hot?”

Another wrote: “I was wondering why this guy is wearing an open shirt. Now I know he’s one of those WWE people.”

“This is a weird episode of Wheel of Fortune,” wrote a third. “Needs to button his shirt,” a fourth person posted.

“If Pat Sajak retires tonight I would understand why,” wrote a fifth.

A sixth stunned fan tweeted: “There’s a guy on Wheel of Fortune with his shirt all unbuttoned like Fabio and stuff. I’m not against it in general, be your best, but come on man. You’re on the wheel of fortune.”

On Monday’s episode, wrestler Carmella and her partner Connie advanced with the highest score, although the latter unfortunately went viral for guessing a riddle called “Playing with Balls.”
