LA Knight made a significant impression after his debut at NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day on February 14th, 2021. He is one of the most over Superstars in WWE right now and it appears some believe that his popularity will be short-lived.

The former NXT Superstar has organically gotten over with fans due to his ability to connect with the audience, which is mostly because of his remarkable work on the microphone.

Fans especially give LA Knight a lot of praise due to the fact that he has managed to work with the most boring of storylines. While speaking on Writing with Russo, Vince Russo stated that he believes LA Knight’s popularity will be short-lived.

“Bro, mark my words. When you play to the crowd, it’s short-lived. It’s like Seth singing. And you just mentioned Bray. Bray never played to the crowd. Austin never played to the crowd. The Rock never played to the crowd. If you play to the crowd, what that means is, ‘Okay, I’m over now, and I’m gonna go out there and keep doing and saying the same thing.’ And then when you go out there and say the same thing for three or six months, they are tired of it.”


LA Knight will be participating in the SummerSlam Battle Royal next week. We will have to wait and see how WWE will book him after the Premium Live Event ends, as fans want nothing but the best for him.
