LA Knight made a significant impression after his debut at NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day on February 14th, 2021. After the beginning stages of his main roster run, fans were concerned he was doomed for failure. Thankfully, LA Knight would get his old gimmick back and has been impressing everyone with his talents once again. Now it appears that even Steve Austin believes LA Knight can ascend to a higher level in WWE.
The former NXT Superstars is touted as one of the best promo workers in the company and he has given people ample examples to firmly believe in that claim. LA Knight continues to win over fans with his performance every week.
LA Knight has tried to keep himself relevant despite all the mediocre angles being presented to him. After all, his feud with Bray Wyatt did not really help him reach the next level in WWE.
While speaking to WrestleRant, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin talked about LA Knight’s potential in Vince McMahon’s company. Steve Austin stated that he believes LA Knight can ascend to a higher level in WWE.
“I said ‘hey man, make sure your cardio is supreme’ and I said ‘just go do you’. So that guy can talk a blue streak. He’s a great worker. He’s got a good look, good energy. So I think he’s doing great. I think he can ascend to a higher level, and I think he will. So I think the guy’s doing awesome.”
LA Knight was also compared to Steve Austin a while ago. He also wants to become the WWE Universal Champion sooner than later. We’ll have to wait and see whether LA Knight will eventually become the top guy on Friday Night Smackdown one day.
