A huge name in WWE thinks that they have become an “undeniable” superstar.
The rise of LA Knight has been one of the biggest stories in WWE over the last year. The “Megastar” went from being a manager of a team of models to wrestling in high-profile matches that have led to a main event position on the SmackDown brand.
While LA Knight had success in IMPACT Wrestling as a former World Champion named Eli Drake, he was a relative unknown as he worked his way up from NXT and onto the WWE main roster.
LA Knight is now in a position where he’s main eventing a major show like Crown Jewel. In an interview with The Ringer, LA Knight spoke about life at the top of the card.
“This is my first Crown Jewel show, and I’m at the top of the card. [This match is] a hell of a testament to the work that I put in, but also just the people making it. Last time we were in Saudi Arabia, the whole crowd just chanting ‘LA Knight,’ right at Triple H. At some point, it’s undeniable. I’ve made myself undeniable.”
As LA Knight continued, he spoke about how nothing was handed to him and he is a man who has made the most of his opportunities in WWE.
“Nobody ever wanted to give me a shot. I didn’t have the hookups. I didn’t have somebody in my family who was in the business. I didn’t have anybody who really had that kind of a hookup.”
“Anytime that I kind of started to get my foot in the door a little bit, people get a certain perception or thought about me one way or another with me barely saying two words to them. So it always made it kind of tough for me to get going anywhere. Some of that, I’m sure, sits on my lap. I hold some of the fault in that, I’m sure. But at the same time, once I got that opportunity, I knew I was going to run like hell with it, and that’s what I’ve done.”
