LA Knight SHUTS DOWN comparisons to MASSIVE AEW star

Last updated

In recent times, the wrestling world has been abuzz with comparisons between WWE’s rising star, LA Knight, and AEW’s Bryan Danielson, particularly in relation to the latter’s iconic ‘Yes’ movement. However, LA Knight has firmly put an end to these comparisons, expressing his unique stance on the matter.

LA Knight’s journey in WWE over the past few months is nothing short of remarkable. His rapid ascent to stardom has made him one of the most celebrated Superstars in the company.

This rise hasn’t gone unnoticed, with many fans drawing parallels between his trajectory and Bryan Danielson’s famed ‘Yes’ movement.

A significant factor behind LA Knight’s popularity is his undeniable prowess on the microphone. His oratory skills, combined with his innate ability to resonate with the WWE Universe, have cemented his place as a top-tier talent. It’s no surprise that he consistently receives one of the loudest pops of the night during WWE events.

LA Knight: The ‘YEAH’ Movement vs. The ‘Yes’ Movement

During an interview on SHAK Wrestling, LA Knight addressed the comparisons head-on. When asked about a potential match against Bryan Danielson, Knight touched upon how fans have labelled his rise as the ‘YEAH’ movement. This, of course, bears a striking resemblance to Danielson’s ‘Yes’ movement.

However, Knight was quick to distance himself from such comparisons. In his words, he’d much prefer to term his journey as a “revolution”, feeling it more aptly captures the essence of his rise.

Knight passionately stated, “You never know. But, you know, that’s why people online started calling it the YEAH Movement. And I’m like, why are we doing that? It’s so close to Yes [Movement], don’t do that.

“I’d rather call it a revolution because that’s what I feel more like it is. But you know, whatever. At this point, they’ve already done it.”

What Lies Ahead for LA Knight?

With such a stellar track record, the future looks promising for the SmackDown Superstar. There are whispers within the wrestling community that WWE plans to give him a significant push post-Fastlane.
