LA Knight is a WWE performer with the potential to reach superstardom in the near future. Following a stint in NXT, it was clear that the 40-year-old’s charisma was second to none and many main roster audiences have taken to him quickly.
For many, Knight’s overwhelming charm creates a nice mix between the promo styles of both The Rock and ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin. While this initially appears to be praise on an extreme level, the cadence of the way Knight speaks almost matches that of The Great One while he and The Rattlesnake both share a catchy one-word phrase.
With attributes such as this, Knight is bound to draw the attention of some of WWE’s previous top stars and, in an exclusive interview for Bleacher Report, Steve Austin has commented on the current day star and his potential in the company by talking through a text conversation that the two shared.
“I said, ‘hey man, just make sure your cardio is supreme’ and I said ‘just go do you’. So that guy can talk a blue streak. He’s a great worker. He’s got a good look, got good energy. So I think he’s doing great. I think he can ascend to a higher level, and I think he will. So I think the guy’s doing awesome.”-Steve Austin
Many believe that big things are in store for LA Knight in the next 12 months, with some even pitching him as a potential winner of Money In The Bank. It’s currently unclear what Knight will be doing next having just come off a feud with The New Day.
As always, we’ll aim to provide any updates on LA Knight and his future as we hear more.
