LA Knight says there’s “a lot of frustration” that he didn’t leave Impact Wrestling sooner

During an appearance on Mark Andrews’ My Love Letter to Wrestling podcast, LA Knight reflected on his run with Impact Wrestling as Eli Drake…

“Very mixed. I mean, look, that was the first time I’ve seen real money and made real money in wrestling. So yeah, there’s a lot of fun, there’s also a lot of frustration that I didn’t leave sooner and not because there was an issue there necessarily but just because I had the opportunity to come here [WWE] earlier.

I was lured in by that evil, evil money. And you know, so it was a matter of eventually realizing that I had reached the ceiling there as far as that was concerned. Even though I was being offered less here to start, the potential is so much greater where it was just like I gotta take the bet on myself eventually and make it pay off.” (quote courtesy of
