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 LA Knight wants to be in the same league as Steve Austin and The Rock.
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 being put into very awkward booking situations. 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 with Cheap Heat, LA Knight talked about his ambitions in WWE. Knight made it clear that he wants to be in the same league as Steve Austin and The Rock.
“Now, what would I like to be? I wanna be the guy who’s at the top of this deal. I wanna be the guy who is running around with that Universal Championship, the World Heavyweight Championship, whatever it is, to the point where people are like, ‘All right, that’s the guy. All right, that’s the guy who also now we’re gonna consider is he one of the best of all time? I don’t know.’ And maybe that’s ambitious, and people look at me, and be like, ‘Oh, this guy’s out of his mind. He thinks he’s that good.’ Yeah, I do. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be doing this.
So, everybody might not agree with that, and that’s cool. That’s fine. I’m not going to be everybody’s cup of tea. But at some point you’re gonna have to drink up. And here’s the deal, at the end of this, my whole aim is when they talk about Austin, Rock, Hogan, Flair, Cena, Undertaker, I want my name to be out there.”
Steve Austin also believes LA Knight can also ascend to higher level in WWE. 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 eventually.
