LA Knight responded to comparisons between himself and Bryan Danielson’s meteoric rise in WWE as Daniel Bryan.
Back in 2013, WWE fans made it clear that Bryan Danielson, then known as Daniel Bryan, was their chosen star, ushering in the Yes Movement as they supported his rise. When Danielson wasn’t a part of the 2014 Royal Rumble, fans revolted, and his journey culminated at WrestleMania 30, where he defeated Batista and Randy Orton to become the Undisputed WWE World Champion after defeating Triple H earlier in the night.
These days, LA Knight has seen a similar groundswell of support from WWE audiences across the world, with some making comparisons between himself and Danielson as Knight has a YEAH Movement of his own going on.
Speaking to SHAK Wrestling, Knight addressed these comparisons and was asked about potentially facing Danielson inside the squared circle. According to Knight, he’d rather fans not compare him to something that’s already been done, but admits he can’t control what his revolution is called.
“Oh boy! You never know. But, you know, that’s why people online started calling it the YEAH Movement. And I’m like, why are we doing that? It’s so close to Yes [Movement], don’t do that. I’d rather call it a revolution because that’s what I feel more like it is. But you know, whatever. At this point, they’ve already done it.”
