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 responded to The Rock making fun of him.
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.
Recently, WWE Hall Of Famer Kevin Nash blasted LA Knight for being ripoff of The Rock and Steve Austin. Nash even doubled down on his comments and had no intention of apologizing for what he had to say.
While speaking to Inside The Ropes, LA Knight addressed The Rock making fun of him by imitating him. LA Knight made it clear it was a crazy moment to be in the same spot as The Rock in ‘Hero’ and made it clear he thought it was super cool. That said, he mocked The Rock’s head, comparing it to a Ninja Turtle.
It was cool, he got a big ass Ninja Turtle head. The craziest part was just seeing him the first time and I was like ‘Damn, that’s a big ass dude.’ Craziest part was we had already done the whole show expect for the finale and we were doing like a press scrum like this one.
At some point he was imitating me and I was like, ‘Oh. Alright this is weird. He was quoting me and I was like, ‘Okay this is intereting. This is cool.’ It was a crazy moment and I cannot believe it has been more than 10 years.
There was good reason why WWE didn’t book LA Knight to win the Money In The Bank ladder match. Regardless, we will have to wait and see what WWE has planned for LA Knight next.
