LA Knight is one of the top stars in WWE right now but there is no guarantee it will always last. Knight constantly gets cheered every week and it appears he was worried that fans would feel he was getting shoved down their throats.

The Megastar challenged Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WWE Crown Jewel last year, where he put up a valiant effort but ultimately lost.

During his appearance on Busted Open, the rise of L.A. Knight in WWE, including his shot at Roman Reigns’ Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at Crown Jewel, was a topic of discussion.

Co-host Bully Ray suggested that perhaps Knight was fed up with being overlooked and not receiving the push he deserves. Knight responded, expressing his concern that leading up to Crown Jewel, audiences might have felt he was being forced upon them.


There’s so many different ways to look at that (Bully Ray’s assessment that maybe Knight is ‘sick & tired’ of being put on the backburner & not getting the push he deserves)… Maybe there was a little too far of a push a little too fast and that’s not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but a little bit of a steady build going into a championship match or something like that.”

”As far as going to the U.S. Championship or the Intercontinental Championship or something like that but jumping straight into the WWE Championship back at Crown Jewel was a little fast to where I almost worried that it might make people go, ah! They’re not gonna do this? They’re not gonna shove him down our throat like this? Are they? Because there is that potential. At the same time, right now, I think I’m in a damn good spot… I don’t know if I’m selling myself short so much as I’m just cautiously optimistic.

WWE’s resident Megastar issued direct challenge to Styles for a one-on-one encounter at WrestleMania 40, which Styles accepted. Therefore, the two will battle it out at The Show of Shows. We will have to wait and see who will prevail in the end.
