Kevin Nash’s Critique

Speaking on a recent episode of the Kliq This podcast, Kevin Nash expressed his views on LA Knight’s performance.

According to Nash, Knight’s style is far from original and is, in fact, an “absolute rip off of The Rock.” He went on to say, “Am I the only one that sees like an absolute rip off of The Rock to the point when he cut the promo on Logan Paul or whatever his name is. The only thing he didn’t do is turn the motherf***er sideways. Jesus Christ, does everybody have amnesia? There’s nothing original.”
