LA Knight comments on missing WrestleMania 39: "Gotta keep moving

In the contemporary world of WWE, one name has been echoing louder than most: LA Knight. With two decades of experience under his belt, LA Knight has emerged as a force to reckon with in the wrestling circuit, captivating audiences with his unmatched charisma and iconic catchphrases.

Notably, while he commenced the year as a heel, Knight has seamlessly transitioned into one of the most beloved babyfaces on the WWE roster. Given his rapid ascent and the significant attention he has garnered, fans naturally anticipated LA Knight's appearance at WrestleMania 39, especially since it was held at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles over two nights.

Given the "LA" moniker in his name and the city's significance, it seemed almost written in the stars. Rumors even buzzed about a potential face-off with Bobby Lashley. Yet, in a turn of events that left many surprised, Knight was conspicuously absent from the almost eight-hour long spectacle that was WrestleMania 39.

Addressing this glaring omission, LA Knight, during an insightful conversation with Alex McCarthy of Inside The Ropes, said, “While some might argue that my time on the active roster since October was too brief for a WrestleMania appearance in April, there was an undeniable buzz around me, especially leading up to the event in March." He continued, "While it was indeed a disappointment not to feature on the grand stage, I choose to persevere, keeping my sights forward.

Some might deem the overwhelming reactions I’ve received as fleeting or momentary, but here we are, several months later, and the momentum has only intensified”.

Knight's Post-WrestleMania Tensions Rise

Charting LA Knight's journey post-WrestleMania, one can't help but notice his clash with The Miz, sparked by jealousy over Knight's monumental Battle Royal victory at SummerSlam.

This animosity was evident in a recent Smackdown bout where Knight, pitted against Austin Theory, found himself distracted by The Miz, leading to a controversial win for Theory. Given the escalating tension between the two superstars, the wrestling community is rife with speculation.

Sources suggest that LA Knight from Smackdown and Raw's The Miz are on course for a showdown at WWE Payback on Saturday, September 2nd. While the match isn't confirmed officially, it appears inevitable, setting the stage for another thrilling chapter in LA Knight's illustrious journey.
