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 some want WWE to push him to the moon.
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 managed to keep himself over despite being put into very awkward booking situations. It is very evident that LA Knight is one of the most popular WWE Superstars right now as he gets incredibly loud reactions every week.
While speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T called for WWE to ‘put a rocket’ on LA Knight and capitalize on his current connection with the WWE Universe.
“Put the rocket on him, man. I mean, quit messing around. Put the title on him [laughs]. That’s my thing, man. When you got a guy like him, he’s rare, he’s very rare. He’s organic, he’s figured it out on his own. When you got guys like that, you got to put ‘em in the game. That’s just me. That’s the school I come from. So yeah, watching that dude do his stuff right now, it’s been awesome.
I watched that dude sit and get a little bit of nothing, and go out there and sprinkle some salt and pepper on it, and some Cholula in it. It feels good. You want to get behind him. He hasn’t been the chosen one or anything like that. Another thing that I say all the time, you gotta win by attrition. You gotta wait until everybody else drop off, and when you walk through that curtain, it’s some heat, and something going on. They gonna know it. It’s inevitable. So I’m just glad to see him getting his flowers.”
Some also believe that LA Knight’s commentary skills have held him back in WWE. John Cena also recently showed love to LA Knight. It remains to be seen whether LA Knight will end up winning the Money In The Bank ladder match, as fans feel he deserves it.
