LA Knight broke out in a big way with the WWE Universe as his “YEAH” catchphrase became a favorite chant along with his promos. Needless to say, fans all over can’t wait to hear LA Knight talk to them at this point, but is he getting along with others backstage?
A report is going around that LA Knight might be rubbing some people backstage the wrong way in WWE. This is reportedly going on at the same time as his meteoric rise to the top of the roster, as he gets some of the best fan reactions of the night.
The report notes that, while Vince McMahon has grown to become a fan of Knight’s, he has a ‘long-running’ reputation of rubbing people the wrong way behind the scenes, and just being ‘bad at backstage politics’.
Ringside News reached out to confirm this story about LA Knight. We were told by a tenured member of the creative team that, “he doesn’t understand the WWE locker room yet. He’ll get straightened out.”
LA Knight does not have a match at SummerSlam yet, and many fans were shocked that he lost the fatal four-way qualifier match for the United States Title. Only time will tell what WWE arranges for him at the biggest party of the summer.
WWE fans are well behind LA Knight at this point, and it’s anyone’s guess how far he will go in WWE. That being said, there is a certainly system at work, and LA Knight is establishing himself in that booking process.
Ringside News will continue monitoring this ongoing story, because you never know what could be around the corner. WWE could very well be readying LA Knight for a big push for SummerSlam and beyond.
LA Knight has a ton of fan support at this time, but how much do you expect for him in WWE? Sound off in the comments to let us know where you stand on things!
