WWE debuted a new Superstar for the NXT brand before TakeOver: Vengeance Day. Eli Drake debuted for the black and gold brand under a new name. Now LA Knight is set to take the NXT Universe by storm, and his new name is not going away either.
According to Heel By Nature, WWE registered a trademark for LA Knight on February 14th, but it was for “LA Night.” This took place on the same day that he debuted at TakeOver. The trademark was officially entered into the database on February 17th.
This trademark was registered in the typical way that WWE locks down all Superstar names. LA Knight has not wrestled in NXT yet, but he has not been shy about getting the message across that he is an incredibly wise signing for the brand.
Interestingly enough, the LA Knights is the name of the fictitious basketball team in the film “Like Mike” which starred Lil Bow Wow. As we previously reported, Bow Wow is set to make his WWE debut soon enough and he is going to train with Rikishi to prepare for his WWE debut.
