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 Shawn Michaels had a lot of good things to say about LA Knight despite Kevin Nash’s criticism.

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.

In spite of all the criticism, there is simply no doubt that LA Knight is one of the most popular Superstars in WWE right now, who continues to get incredible reactions from fans every week.

While speaking with Riju Dasgupta for Sportskeeda WrestleBinge, Shawn Michaels, who is a close friend of Kevin Nash, stated that Nash has a right to his own opinion but that Michaels is happy seeing LA Knight thrive in WWE.


”No, except that Kevin Nash has always given his opinion on stuff. Dare I say, so does Sportskeeda and every other website out there [laughs]. You guys got opinions on lots of people, every wrestling fan does. You’re absolutely allowed to have them, as Kevin’s allowed to have his. We can all agree or respectfully disagree. So I don’t know that LA Knight has any problem with what Kevin Nash says, or anybody else.

I know him as somebody that we very much enjoyed working with here in NXT. Nobody’s happier to see him thriving and doing well on the main roster more than I am. We here at NXT are very proud of all the men and women that got brought up in the draft. Obviously very excited about that. It speaks well of NXT, and it speaks well of what the Performance Center has done for the WWE.”

Kevin Nash also apologized to LA Knight after his controversial comments. WWE also has an interesting viewpoint on LA Knight. We’ll have to see whether he will become a champion soon.
