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 appears he believes fans will be disappointed if he isn’t booked on WrestleMania 40.
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 incredible work on the microphone.
While LA Knight continues to get strong reactions every week, WWE hasn’t really pushed him in a way that fans would have liked. This has also worried fans about his status in the company.
While speaking with Breakfast Television, Knight talked about his status for WrestleMania 40 next year. Knight stated that he believes fans will be disappointed if he isn’t booked on WrestleMania 40.
“[You might have a role in that show, sir.] It’s a long way away but we shall see. I would be really surprised and I think a lot of people would be disappointed if I didn’t.”
It remains to be seen how WWE will book LA Knight in the coming weeks, as fans feel he is finally on the receiving end of a push and on the cusp of greatness. Many also believe he deserves a title run, if nothing else.
