After coming up short a couple times recently, many of us may be wondering…who or what is stopping LA Knight?
Heading into Money In The Bank, fans were very much behind Knight claiming the briefcase in London.
As we know now…he did not.
After failing overseas, fans have remained strongly behind him. Even though he has been positioned as a heel for much of 2023, he is very over with fans.
To that end, it’s becoming more and more clear in recent weeks that the company is embracing how over Knight is.
Putting in this way, he is one of the top babyface Superstars on either RAW or SmackDown.
Like, seriously, he’s up there with Cody Rhodes, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Seth Rollins…you get the idea.
So, if someone…anyone…is that over, and has flipped the script from heel to face…
Who Or What Is Stopping LA Knight?
It’s a fair question.
After all, he was one of the top choices to win the MITB briefcase (of course, the winner, Damien Priest, was too).
Then, we were all expecting him to become the #1 contender for the United States Championship.
I mean…LA Knight taking on Austin Theory at SummerSlam…and winning the belt? That pop would be tremendous.
And yet, here we are, just a couple weeks from the biggest party of the summer, and Knight has no briefcase and no title match.
But…as over as he is…he’s apparently just as bad at back stage politics.
Or maybe that isn’t it, as Twitter source BWE has said Knight has no heat?
Whatever politics he won’t deal with, or isn’t navigating correctly, hopefully that gets sorted sooner than later.
Honestly a bit surprised by it, as I figured Knight was someone Triple H would have an easy time with. Which makes you wonder…is it management, or fellow Superstars, who Knight is rubbing the wrong way?
Either way, according to the Torch, nothing he has done has derailed the big push permanently.
It just…keeps getting delayed.
