In an unusual show of camaraderie, fans of All Elite Wrestling (AEW) expressed their admiration for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) star, LA Knight, following a recent episode of AEW's "Dynamite". A video capturing this unique event surfaced shortly thereafter, which revealed the crowd outside Boston's TD Garden chanting Knight's name with unfettered enthusiasm.
The video shows one fan posing the question, "Yo, yo, I got a question. Whose game is it?", to a group of fellow enthusiasts. The crowd's resonant response, "LA Knight ... Yeah!", seemed to echo their acceptance of Knight's dominant presence in the wrestling scene.
The LA Knight himself caught wind of the video and promptly shared it on his Instagram stories.
LA Knight Dominates SmackDown Tonight
Known previously as Eli Drake, Knight's burgeoning popularity is expected to be on full display in tonight's "WWE SmackDown".
Knight is set to engage in a fierce fatal-four-way match with opponents BUTCH, AJ Styles, and Grayson Waller. This match is part of Austin Theory's United States Championship Invitational. The winner of this brawl will have the opportunity to face off against Santos Escobar, who previously triumphed over Cameron Grimes, Sheamus, and Rey Mysterio.
This final confrontation will determine Austin Theory's next title challenger. Although WWE has yet to make an official announcement, it's anticipated that the victor of this tournament will meet Theory for the US Title at the forthcoming SummerSlam premium live event.
Despite having not competed in a televised match since the Money in the Bank ladder match, WWE has continued to provide Knight with significant airtime due to the fan's persistent demands for his presence. The "Yeah! Movement" has infiltrated social media, as fans circulate and share vintage videos of the wrestler from his "WWE NXT" tryouts, commercials, infomercials, and acting auditions prior to his ascent to WWE's main roster.
WWE's official Twitter account even acknowledged the LA Knight phenomenon with a "He's Everywhere" tweet earlier this month, amplifying the joy of the superstar's rapidly expanding fanbase on "SmackDown".
