LA Knight recently opened up about his intense WrestleMania encounter with AJ Styles, shedding light on the explosive press brawl that made headlines.

During a media event leading up to WWE WrestleMania 40, tensions flared between the two adversaries, resulting in brawl that abruptly concluded their respective sessions. Notably, Styles emerged from the scuffle nursing a bloody nose.

Reflecting on the incident during an appearance on the KiddChris Show, Knight quipped, “It was kind of silly for them to sit us next to each other. What did they expect was going to happen. Things blew up, he slammed me down, but when we came out of it, he had a bloody nose.”

When questioned if the brawl was premeditated upon realizing they would be seated adjacent to each other, Knight dismissed the notion,


“Nope. Legitimately, I walked in the room…the setup is a big press junket and there were a bunch of different seats set out. Of all the seats that were set together, his and mine were within five feet of each other. I kind of looked over there and I was said to myself, ‘there’s a good chance we might have to fight at some point.’ I was just thinking that to myself. At some point, he tossed a stool that he was sitting on over in my direction. I was like, ‘Welp, gotta fight him now.’ That’s pretty much how it goes.”

Acknowledging the impromptu nature of the altercation, Knight and Styles found themselves in a situation where quick thinking was essential. Knight remarked, “Yeah, 100%, at that point, it’s on security to break us up.”

Despite Knight emerging victorious at WrestleMania 40, Styles managed to turn the tide by defeating Knight, thereby earning a coveted opportunity to challenge for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WWE Backlash.
