LA Knight says he wants to be able to fail because it helps him get better

Heading into the 2024 WWE Royal Rumble PLE, LA Knight appeared on Chris Van Vliet’s podcast and said the following about his creative direction in WWE…

“It’s a process, getting all that stuff done. Because I have ideas for things and it’s like so you might try and run it through somebody. Okay, well, yeah, we might do that. And I think there was also just skepticism at first, like is this really a thing? Is this just gonna be a flash in the pan? Is this just gonna be a flavor of the month? And that was kind of even a thing that we had talked about and was even talked about with me. It was like, Well, we don’t want to give it to him too soon, because then they might get over it. And it’s like, look, fine. If that’s the case and I’m not good enough to carry that, cool. Let’s go with that. But I understand the idea of also wanting to protect me at some point as well. But I have the belief in myself that I can pivot and move and adapt to whatever the situation is.

So if the thought is, well, if we give it to him too soon, you don’t wanna give it to him too soon. But if you just don’t give it to him at all, come on, man. I feel like I’m better than that. I don’t mean that in like a boisterous way, but just, I’m confident in what I do. I’m confident in my skills. And at the same time, I want to be able to fail. Because when I fail I get better.” (quote courtesy of Chris Van Vliet)
