WWE SmackDown wrestler LA Knight is the hottest rising star in all of Professional Wrestling today.
He’s now also a top 5 merch seller in WWE. Despite being very over with the crowd, he’s still a heel character.
After he lost the Men’s Money In The Bank ladder match in London, he cut a heel promo the next night at a WWE Live Event in Cardiff, Wales.
Below is what The Mega Star said in his promo:
“Nobody back there knows this right now, but last night was my last match. If I wasn’t coming out with that case, it’s all over for me. I wanted to come out and feel this one more in my gear, standing in this ring, before I say goodbye. Or at least that’s what they’d like me to say!
So, let me talk to ya! I stand here right now thinking about what happened last night. That case, hanging up there, in my grasp, about to pull it down. At long last, it comes down in the hands of who? Who? Who cares. It didn’t come down in the hands of LA Knight.
Here’s how it goes. I haven’t been given anything since I walked through the door, let’s face facts, and here I stand, top of the industry. Here I stand, the man, all over the place, everywhere you go. Everywhere, all around the round, it’s the same song, and how’s that song go? With everybody saying (crowd chants LA Knight).
It’s for that reason. The reason ain’t y’all. The reason is me. You can feel cool saying my name all you want, but I don’t need y’all, let’s be honest. I didn’t need that case either.
Just like I made myself a top man in this industry is the same way, with or without a case, I will make myself a champion sooner or later, and there ain’t nobody that can stop me.
That’s not an insult. That’s just a fact of life.”
In an update from insider source BWE, WWE is now going to turn LA Knight into a babyface.
The seeds for this babyface turn were already planted before SmackDown at Madison Square Garden this past Friday, where he beat up Hit Row in an untelevised segment.
