LA Knight made a major impact after his debut at NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day on February 14th, 2021. The initial stages of his main roster run made fans fear the worst for his future in the company. Thankfully, LA Knight was able to get back to his old gimmick and is now insanely over with fans. That said, it appears that LA Knight has been advised to not renew his contract with WWE once it expires.
The former NXT Superstar is often considered one of the best on the microphone and he has shown fans many times why he deserves the acclaim. LA Knight continues to win over fans with his skills every week.
LA Knight has tried to keep himself relevant despite all the mediocre angles being presented to him. It is very evident that LA Knight is one of the most over WWE Superstars right now as he gets incredibly loud reactions every week.
While speaking on Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall Of Famer Mark Henry talked about how WWE has been booking LA Knight. Henry advised Knight has to not renew his WWE contract if Creative doesn’t listen to him and book him better.
“It sucks, man, that there have been times, and Bully can attest to that, that somebody gets over naturally and organically, and then they say, ‘Well, he’s already getting over, let’s do something with somebody else,’ rather than pile it on that guy. Pour the gasoline on the fire.
The squeaky wheel gets the oil. Say something. ‘Will y’all do something with me, please? I’m busting my ass, I’m getting over.’
I don’t know if LA Knight is doing that. You gotta lobby for yourself,” he explained. “And if they say no, then you know what the deal is. When your contract comes up, don’t try to renew.”
We will have to wait and see whether LA Knight will end up winning the Money In The Bank ladder match and get one step closer to winning a Championship in Vince McMahon’s company soon.
