WWE has a few Superstars on their roster that fans see big things in. LA Knight is seemingly breaking out in a big way, and it took long either. Either way, fans are starting to gravitate toward his infectious charisma.

LA Knight has undoubtedly captivated audiences with his charisma and entertainment skills, effectively eliciting reactions from the crowd with his every move. One of the standout elements of his persona is his collection of memorable catchphrases, with “yeah” being among the most popular and recognizable. Interestingly, Knight shared that he had carried this catchphrase over from his time in TNA, but it was during his early days in WWE that it truly blossomed.

LA Knight’s ability to connect with the crowd through his catchphrases has undoubtedly contributed to his status as one of the most charismatic and entertaining Superstars in WWE.

While speaking to Rosenberg Radio, LA Knight discussed the origins of his catchphrase. He described how mocking a WWE official helped him develop the catchphrase.


“I don’t remember the exact origin, but I think I’m pretty sure what happened was like one of the coaches there would like be telling us something and I would always just kind of be like, you know, how some people go ‘uh-huh uh-huh’. I would just be like ‘yeah yeah’ and he’d kind of like he’d kind of pushed back on me, and he’s like ‘what’ as though I was like being a smart ass or something and so then I started leaning into it and so then when he’d start saying stuff I go ‘yeah!’”

As he reflected on his career, LA Knight disclosed that he mimicked a WWE official’s mannerisms and speech patterns, playfully incorporating them into his own character. This playful imitation inadvertently birthed his now iconic catchphrase, which resonated with audiences and became a defining element of his persona.

LA Knight is a fan favorite to win the Money in the Bank briefcase on July 1st. We will have to see how that match turns out, because it seems that WWE fans are a bit impatient at this point, and they don’t want to boo him anymore.
