LA Knight comments on being “very unhappy” due to his creative situation with Vince McMahon in WWE

Heading into the 2024 WWE Royal Rumble PLE, LA Knight appeared on Chris Van Vliet’s podcast and here are the highlights via Twitter/X account @YEAHRevolution_

Max Dupri character: “(Vince McMahon) had a vision for this thing that put such a microscope on it and I didn’t know what the hell it was… and it just wasn’t going well. I was very unhappy and I’m sure he probably was and then at some point it was just like all of a sudden I’m not on TV and I’m like, well, I’m pretty sure I’m fired. I’m pretty sure this whole ride is over.”

Working with John Cena: “That is one of the easiest guys to work with. Everything is simple. Super easy to talk to. Super cool. Super nice… If I wanted to pull him aside and ask him about a few things he was more than willing to give me the time and any kind of words to direct me one way or another. Just an awesome dude.”

Becoming a champion in 2024: “Some others would say ‘Ah, he doesn’t need it,’ but for me I think I do need it. I think the reason I need it is…I have gotten to a level that I have proven I am beyond worthy, I have proven that I deserve it and I’ve proven that I’ve earned it.”
