As previously noted, LA Knight was called out by WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash for being “an absolute rip off” of The Rock. In a follow-up podcast, Nash questioned Knight’s drawing power and said “why didn’t he get over anywhere else?”
During the September 8th 2023 edition of WWE Smackdown, Knight made a reference to Nash. Knight brought up Nash’s “look at the adjective – play” promo from WCW in June of 1996.

Knight said the following while addressing The Miz’s “I came to play” song lyric…
“If I was a complete moron, I’d say ‘look at the adjective – play’ but I’m not so I’ll say look at the verb!”
