SmackDown wrestler LA Knight is the hottest up-and-coming superstar in WWE today.

He’s very hot with the crowd right now and many fans believe he’s going to win the Men’s Money In The Bank 2023 Ladder Match this Saturday in London, England.

While LA unexpectedly got very over with the crowd this year, he almost got fired from WWE last year when he was Max Dupri (Manager of Maximum Male Models).

Below is what Knight said:

“Well, let me just go ahead and say this. I’m pretty sure I was fired and it just hadn’t officially happened yet.

Without getting into too many details, some things happened. I don’t remember what it was, but some things happened. Then I had gotten a FaceTime, ‘Hey, you know, we want to keep you around. We want to do this, this, that whatever’, and, okay, cool. Good.

So somehow I had been saved from being thrown off the cliff. At least this is my interpretation of it. Maybe I’m incorrect. I don’t know. So eventually, things kind of worked out.

I think that maybe again, maybe some of the testament to why things are working the way they are and the people reacting the way they are is because one of these was not me, and I didn’t know who it was, and one of these is very much just me, like, I don’t have to think about LA Knight.

I don’t really have to dig in like, what is this? Who am I? What am I doing? I just go and do because it’s just me heightened.”

LA Knight is a former IMPACT Wrestling (fka TNA) World Heavyweight Champion.
