LA Knight Wants Usher For Special WWE WrestleMania Entrance

LA Knight has some thoughts about a special WrestleMania entrance featuring popular singer Usher.

At the NFL’s Super Bowl 58 event in Las Vegas, the halftime show was performed by popular singer Usher, who sang some of the biggest hits of his career over the last 25 years.

One of Usher’s most popular songs was the 2004 hit “Yeah” which he performed with Lil Jon and Ludacris. At the Super Bowl, Usher performed the song there as well and it was a big hit with the crowd, which is not a surprise since it was the biggest songs of the 2000s decade.

As WWE fans know, the word “YEAH” has seen a resurgence due to the rising popularity of Smackdown star LA Knight. During his promos, Knight usually starts by saying “let me talk to ya” and he’s known for shouting “YEAH” as well. During LA Knight matches, fans often chant “YEAH” during his stomp routine or when he rams an opponent’s head into the commentary table repeatedly.

While appearing on WWE’s The Bump this week, LA Knight put it out there that he wants Usher to perform “YEAH” with him at WrestleMania 40 in Philadelphia.

“Wait a minute. Can we get this set up? Is he coming to WrestleMania for my entrance or what?… I’m coming out and I’m doing it [performing ‘Yeah’] with him. Let’s go.”

It’s not known if Usher is a WWE fan or if he would want to do it, but now that Knight has put it out there, you never know if it could happen.
