WWE Hall of Famer Booker T recently weighed in on the escalating feud between LA Knight and Roman Reigns, speculating that if Knight were to dethrone Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, it would be a monumental upset that would send fans into a frenzy.
Booker T discussed this intriguing possibility in a recent instalment of his 'Hall of Fame' podcast, adding an exciting layer of anticipation to the championship match scheduled for next month's Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.
Over the past year, LA Knight has ascended the ranks to become one of WWE's most electrifying and popular talents. With his magnetic charisma and top-notch in-ring ability, Knight has resonated with fans, leading many to believe he could be the one to end Reigns' historic title reign.
Reigns, who has maintained an iron grip on the championship belt, is seen as one of the most dominant figures in modern wrestling history. Therefore, a victory for LA Knight would not only be a career-defining moment for him but also a jolt to the WWE universe.
Russo on Reigns-Knight
However, despite the rising clamour for a new champion, former WWE head writer Vince Russo expressed scepticism on his 'Legion of RAW podcast. Russo, a seasoned industry veteran, argues that LA Knight's age might be a hindrance in WWE's long-term booking plans, casting doubt on the likelihood of him defeating Roman Reigns.
Adding another layer to this entangled narrative, it's rumoured that Roman Reigns is set to extend his ongoing rivalry with a 10-time WWE champion into the next year. This piece of information has led many to speculate that WWE may be hesitant to take the belt off Reigns anytime soon.
As the wrestling world counts down the days to the colossal showdown at Crown Jewel, fans and pundits alike are split down the middle. Will LA Knight shatter expectations and reign supreme, or will Roman Reigns' era of dominance continue? Only time will tell, but one thing is certain—this is a story that will keep fans glued to their screens, eagerly awaiting the outcome.
