LA Knight toiled away in TNA for years as Eli Drake before he finally made his way to WWE. He also paid the NWA a visit along the way, and he kept that “YEAH” and “LEMME TALK TO YA” going the whole way. Now that he’s in WWE and finally getting a chance to shine, LA Knight’s rise has been incredibly rapid.

LA Knight is still waiting for his big break in WWE, and fans can’t wait for that to happen. He keeps getting placed in matches where a win could start a brand-new chapter in his career, but it seems that hasn’t happened quite yet. Still, his popularity is undeniable.

LA Knight is making a lot of media rounds, and he recently showed up on Breakfast Television. During that appearance, the incredibly popular WWE Superstar had a lot to say.

“I don’t want to toot my own, but toot toot. I’ll go ahead and say that is probably the quickest climb in the history of the business. Maybe I’m off base if someone on Twitter wants to correct me. Just looking at the way things have moved, only being on the SmackDown roster since October and having this explosive growth like this. it’s been huge, it’s been enormous, I didn’t plan on it. How could you plan for it? At the same time, I’m just going to keep doing what I’m doing because, obviously, that’s working one way or another. Whether they want to boo me or cheer me, doesn’t make a difference to me. I’m going to go out there, do my thing and keep pushing and I’m going to get myself to the top.”


“Never before, again, I don’t want to blow smoke, but I have to be honest. I wasn’t positioned to be there. I wasn’t positioned for this to happen. For it to happen that quickly, that strong, and with none of that extra push or support, and now we’re making that happen. It’s a whole other level. With that, the people have jumped on the gravy train, yeah, and we’re going to ride it all the way to the top.”

LA Knight has done a lot in his career that some fans might not even realize. He was actually Paul Bearer’s final client before his passing. You can click here to see the video of that moment in pro wrestling history.

Only time will tell what is next for LA Knight. He seems eager to show the world what they’ve been missing. That ego is also unmistakable at this point.
