LA Knight was the people’s choice to win the men’s Money In The Bank match in London, England but it was not to be for the popular SmackDown star.
LA Knight has grown in popularity to a huge degree since being allowed to flourish in WWE with many fans rallying behind the star to win Money In The Bank. Ultimately that prize went to Damian Priest but Knight’s fans show no sign of slowing down getting behind the star.
Speaking on My Love Letter To Wrestling, LA Knight was asked if he thinks fans overlook his in-ring work because of his talents on the microphone:
“Thank you for that, but usually I see the rap where, ‘he’s great on the mic and okay in the ring,’ but for me, I’m okay with that because all the guys I liked the most when I was coming up, I’d say were mostly the same. My favorite guy when I was a kid, (Hulk) Hogan. My favorite guy when I was in high school, still kind of Hogan, NWO version, but then Austin, Rock, Flair. Like Flair was very good, but he didn’t do anything spectacular. Most of the stuff was psychology and things looking good and snappy and things like that.
“So for me, I like to spice things in every now and then. I like to jump to the top and I hit Butch with that superplex not too long ago. I can fit those things in where I need it, but at the same time, I try not to harp on it too much as far as, ‘Oh, I’m good on the mic,’ whatever. Guys who brag about that, it just seems like a strange thing.”
One WWE Hall of Famer is not such a fan of LA Knight, however, as they recently described him as a “ripoff of The Rock.”
