WWE star LA Knight joined today’s edition of The Bump to discuss the upcoming Money In The Bank premium live event, where he will be competing for the MITB briefcase. During his chat, the former Million Dollar Champion says he stands “head and shoulders” above the entire locker room and plans on making them all realize that by becoming Mr. Money In The Bank. Highlights, including the full edition of The Bump, can be found below.
Says that he will win the MITB briefcase regardless if he has the fans support or not:
Finally, the WWE is gonna give me what I want. Why? Because I had to go out and make it happen. Look, I didn’t ask for anybody, talk about being a fan-favorite, I didn’t go out there and say, ‘Hey, please cheer for me. Hey, please like me.’ As a matter of fact, if they don’t cheer for me, if they don’t like me, doesn’t make a damn bit of difference to me. At the end of the day, I’m gonna go to Money in the Bank, I’m gonna climb that ladder, I’m gonna pull the case down, and then any single one of those titles that I want is coming my way, whether it’s Gunther, whether it’s Austin Theory, whether it’s Seth Rollins or whether it’s Roman Reigns himself, any single one of them are in the crosshairs at this point. So what you got to think about is man, look, I didn’t get shoved down anybody’s throat. I wasn’t anybody’s guy. I came in and I did my thing, and the whole world, whether you take me to Saudi Arabia, whether you take me to London, whether you take me to Puerto Rico, you can take me to Mobile, Alabama, and every single place is gonna make a whole lot of noise for LA Knight. You know why that is? Because they can see that I stand head and shoulders above everybody walking.
Says a big opportunity for his career has been long overdue:
It is gonna be life-changing because for a good long time, I couldn’t get what was coming to me. But now I’m gonna take what’s been coming to me for a good long, time. It’s been overdue.
LA Knight defeated Montez Ford to advance to the Money In The Bank Ladder match.
