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. That said, he was left out of WrestleMania 39 earlier this year and it appears he has vowed to make up for being snubbed from the Show of Shows.
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.
Despite his popularity, LA Knight was left out of the WrestleMania 39 card. The only match he took part in was the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal which took place on the go-home edition of SmackDown before WrestleMania 39.
While speaking with BT Sport, LA Knight talked about his exclusion from WrestleMania 39. Knight noted that he felt satisfied with the reaction Los Angeles gave him on that episode of SmackDown and has left the exclusion in the rear-view mirror and vowed to make up for it as well.
“I kinda let that one just stay where it was because I had let out all my anger and frustration the night before, because I felt very vindicated by the reaction that LA had given me at the SmackDown the night before.
It was big, it was huge, and it kinda made me even more pissed off that I didn’t have something going on the next day.
So, at that point though I had to just be like, ‘Well, it is what it is, bye’, and just kind of left it in the rear-view mirror at that point. So I haven’t really sat and thought about it, reflected on it, whatever.
Glaring omission you say? Yeah. Maybe even a stumble or a fumble, I don’t know. But here we are and we’re gonna make up for it.”
John Cena also recently showed love to LA Knight. We will have to wait and see whether LA Knight will end up winning the Money In The Bank ladder match, as fans want to see him become a champion soon.
