In an enthralling turn of events, LA Knight's rapid ascension within the WWE landscape has culminated in a highly anticipated main event showdown against Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WWE Crown Jewel, set to unfold in a mere matter of days.
Amidst the fervor, esteemed commentator Corey Graves shared his contemplations on the potential aftermath of a Knight victory during a riveting episode of "After The Bell." Graves enthusiastically asserted, “LA Knight is absolutely setting the WWE Universe ablaze at this moment.
He’s arguably the brightest star in our constellation of superstars. Should he succeed at Crown Jewel, I genuinely believe there will be no room for disappointment. The excitement levels would be off the charts."
Recalling Historic Upsets
Graves continued to delve deeper, expressing, “When was the last time we’ve witnessed such a monumental shock in our industry? A title win against all odds? Certainly, there are instances that come to mind - take Lyra Valkyria and Becky Lynch, for example.
Though perhaps not directly comparable to the magnitude of Roman versus LA Knight, they’ve undoubtedly left an indelible mark. Just last night at ‘NXT’ Halloween Havoc Night One, not many could have predicted Lyra’s triumph." He added, “We all anticipated a spectacular bout, but Lyra’s victory was a twist many didn’t see coming.
And now, as we inch closer to Saudi Arabia, we might be on the cusp of witnessing a similar seismic shift in the WWE Universe”. As the WWE gears up for its triumphant return to Saudi Arabia, the stakes are incredibly high, and the air is thick with anticipation.
Notably, this premium live event marks Roman Reigns' final appearance for the year, as he will be stepping away from the ring, missing Survivor Series but anticipated to make a grand return in time for the Royal Rumble. The wrestling world waits with bated breath, eager to see how this captivating saga will unfold.
