LA Knight is going with a lot of momentum right now, and there is no denying that. WWE fans are responding in a big way as well, and it appears that he has a nice royalty check on the way as well.

LA Knight didn’t win the Money in the Bank, but the company realizes how over he is. If anything, the fact that he’s moving a lot of merchandise is a big deal internally.

Wrestle Ops recently tweeted out to say that LA Knight is now on WWE’s top 5 merchandise sellers. He ranks in #4, under Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes, and Steve Austin.

LA Knight was amongst the top 5 highest merch sellers in WWE for the month of June 2023 (Wrestlenomics). Ahead only being (in order):

LA Knight saw this tweet, and he had a one-word reply. The former Eli Drake tweeted out to say: “Defiant.”
