LA Knight had been struggling on the mid-card, donning the gimmick of Max Dupri last year. However, with the onset of Triple H’s regime, the dynamic star reverted back to his popular NXT persona and that was the beginning of the re-emergence of the YEAH! movement.
The recent month saw massive support emerging for LA Knight, with the pop growing louder each and every week. Moreover, his amazing style and captivating personality drew comparisons with two of the greatest WWE superstars of all time, The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin.
However, his celebration was cut short by Damien Priest’s timing who slithered the opportunity away from LA Knight. We will just have to wait and see when he decides to strike with the golden opportunity that could probably lead him to the dreamland and become the next WWE World Champion.
