LA Knight appears as a manager ahead of WWE SmackDown

Last updated

WWE NXT 2.0 Superstar LA Knight made an appearance on the main roster this week ahead of SmackDown on FOX.

It was previously leaked that WWE was considering bringing up Knight to the main roster as a “manager,” and the company seemed to put the wheels in motion for that ahead of the Friday night show.

LA Knight appeared ahead of the SmackDown show in DCU Center in Worcester, MA this week to be the manager of MACE.

The NXT 2.0 Superstar revealed on the microphone that he is looking to form Knight Model Management, with MACE being his first signing.

There’s no news on whether WWE will be running with this on television, as Friday night appeared to be a trial run for the new gimmick.

LA Knight as a manager

Considering that the former Eli Drake has been such an over personality on NXT 2.0, it is BAFFLING that WWE is considering making him a manager on the main roster.

Knight is 39, which may be the reason that the company are looking at keeping him somewhat sidelined on RAW or SmackDown.

Even if WWE decides to bring him to the main roster as a manager, hopefully he will still get the chance to actually wrestle.
