LA Knight Breaks Silence Over Money In The Bank Loss

LA Knight Money In The Bank

LA Knight was the people’s choice to win Money In The Bank in London, England but in the end, the SmackDown star was left rueing his missed opportunity.

Logan Paul may have stolen most of the headlines ahead of the men’s Money In The Bank match but WWE crowds were firmly behind LA Knight to capture the briefcase. In the end, however, both those stars and the rest of the field had to take a backseat to Damian Priest who emerged from the show as SeƱor Money In The Bank.

Before his match at a live event in Cardiff, Wales on the night after the London show, LA Knight took to the microphone to address the crowd and the fact he came up short at Money In The Bank:

“Nobody back there knows this right now, but last night was my last match. If I wasn’t coming out with that case, it’s all over for me. I wanted to come out and feel this one more in my gear, standing in this ring, before I say goodbye. Or at least that’s what they’d like me to say!

“So, let me talk to ya! I stand here right now thinking about what happened last night. That case, hanging up there, in my grasp, about to pull it down. At long last, it comes down in the hands of who? Who? Who cares. It didn’t come down in the hands of LA Knight.

“Here’s how it goes. I haven’t been given anything since I walked through the door, let’s face facts, and here I stand, top of the industry. Here I stand, the man, all over the place, everywhere you go. Everywhere, all around the round, it’s the same song, and how’s that song go?

“With everybody saying [crowd cheers LA Knight]. It’s for that reason. The reason ain’t y’all. The reason is me. You can feel cool saying my name all you want, but I don’t need y’all, let’s be honest. I didn’t need that case either. Just like I made myself a top man in this industry is the same way, with or without a case, I will make myself a champion sooner or later, and there ain’t nobody that can stop me. That’s not an insult. That’s just a fact of life.”

LA Knight went on to lose to Rey Mysterio on the show but will be hoping that his luck turns around soon as he continues his quest to become a champion in WWE.

However, while many WWE fans have come around to LA Knight, one WWE Hall of Famer has taken a swipe at him, calling Knight a “ripoff of The Rock.”
