LA Knight made a significant impression after his debut at NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day on February 14th, 2021. His main roster call up wasn’t received as well at first, but things are much better now as he is very over with fans. Now it appears he wants to put the United States Invitational behind him.

As seen on last week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown, Sheamus, LA Knight, Rey Mysterio, and Cameron Grimes competed in a Fatal Four Way match to advance to the finals of the United States Championship Invitational.

LA Knight was the overwhelming favorite heading into the match, as he got a ton of cheers throughout. That didn’t matter in the end as Mysterio ended up winning the match instead of Knight. This definitely disappointed fans in a major way.

While speaking on SmackDown Lowdown, LA Knight made it clear he wants to put the United States Invitational behind him calling it a debacle and has his sights set on SummerSlam.


“After the debacle of the United States Invitational, put it in the past. Now, we march forward. Next week, you’re talking about me, you’re talking about Sheamus, that pasty mush mouth. And after I put him down, after I drop him, I walk right into the SummerSlam Battle Royal. Thank you, Slim Jim, because now you gave me the opportunity to take every single guy who’s in there and toss him out, toss him out, toss this one out. Everybody else walks in there, I’ll toss them out too. You don’t even have to be in the match, and I will toss you out over the top. Why? Because I can. I made it that way.”

LA Knight’s loss is certainly a shocker to many fans. That said, WWE will likely begin pushing him after SummerSlam, so all fans can do right now is wait and hope for the best in his case.
