• “He was about to get the slap right in the mouth” – Current WWE Star On The Undertaker
During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, SmackDown wrestler LA Knight talked about working with The Undertaker at RAW XXX, fans comparing him to The Rock & more.
Below are the highlights:
On his segment with The Undertaker at RAW XXX:
“Well, I’ll tell you what. He was about this close to get the slap right in the mouth, but I decided to spare him. But I’ll tell you the truth. It’s funny because you always hear the cliche when you’re standing in that ring and that bell tolls, you know, it’s chills, and I’m like, ‘Sure.’
Once that hit, it was chills. It was pretty wild. But at the same time to be standing there and doing my thing and to be recognized. That audience was right on top of everything, I had to say, even with The Undertaker in the ring.
So I mean, that’s a big feather in my cap as far as I’m concerned. At the same time, you know, looking at a guy who’s undoubtedly a legend, Hall of Famer, crazy, crazy night leading into this Royal Rumble.”
On fans comparing his voice to The Rock:
“Well, you know what’s so funny is as I go online, you know, and Twitter might be the worst thing in the world, the amount of people I’ve been compared to and said that I am is astounding and every day I’ll see a new one. I’ll just be like, ‘Wait, who?’ So yeah, it’s not surprising.
Sometimes you would just hear my voice or you’d hear his voice and it would be tough to tell who was who until the person’s face came on screen and you’re like, oh, yeah. But I don’t know.
I don’t think otherwise there’s a whole lot alike. It’s just my normal speaking voice. But like, I don’t think that, once I actually get amped up or anything like that, I think I kind of lose it at that point.”
