LA Knight made a major impact 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. That said, not everyone is a fan of his current booking and it appears WWE was criticized for the same.

The former NXT Superstars is often considered one of the best promo workers in the company and he has given showed fans time and time again why he deserves the adulation. 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 really did him no favors. His current storyline with Rick Boogs didn’t exactly set the world on fire either.

While speaking on his K100 podcast, pro wrestling legend Konnan talked about LA Knight’s current direction in WWE. Konnan was simply baffled by how Knight has been booked so far and criticized WWE for the same.


“I don’t know why you’d have a guy, when it’s so hard to get people over, is over, and you haven’t even pushed him. There’s so many great things you can do to make money with him. Why you wouldn’t take advantage of him and try to take his knees out? And I could see him as Universal Champion, and if they gave him a proper push like we’ve seen them do when they want to, why not World Champ?”

That being said, reports have suggested that LA Knight is in good hands creatively. Only time will tell whether WWE will pull the trigger on LA Knight and have him win a major title in the company.
