LA Knight made a significant impression after his debut at NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day on February 14th, 2021. While Knight is one of the most over WWE Superstars right now, it doesn’t mean he always gets a spot in WWE’s Premium Live Events. Now it appears he addressed being left off some events.

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.

While speaking with Good Karma Wrestling, LA Knight was asked to describe the hardest part of his rise to stardom in WWE. Knight admitted it’s difficult for him to be on some Premium Live Events due to WWE’s stacked roster.

“Sure. I mean some of that, look, the roster is so stacked and full. You want the premium live event to stand out as something different than what you see on TV, so you don’t want the exact same formula.”


“So those spots on the premium live events are limited, and so at some point, look, I’m getting the big reactions, you can’t deny that.”

“But at the same time, I guess some people would say, ‘Well, he’s only been here nine or ten months or whatever.’ But some of that’s also just figuring out that a lot of this was unexpected.”

“A lot of this came out of the blue, so sometimes plans have to change, and that’s the way it goes. So here we are, and now you’re looking at me being an integral part of this SummerSlam coming in.”

You got the Slim Jim battle royal, it’s 20 guys in that ring. I don’t who anybody else is in that match except me and Sheamus at this point, so all bets are off when it comes to that, but Ford Field, battle royal, you’re looking for big things and there just might be this guy’s hand raised right there. Yeah.”

LA Knight will be participating in the SummerSlam Battle Royal this 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.
