On a recent edition of the “Busted Open Radio” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray discussed the potential future of WWE Superstar LA Knight following Crown Jewel 2023.
Knight wrestled Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns in a losing effort this past weekend at Crown Jewel 2023 in Saudi Arabia.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On the progress of Knight: “He’s on his way but it’s not all there yet. It takes time to get to that level.”
On how fans currently view Knight: “The people aren’t there for LA Knight. They’re not willing him to win. Go back and listen to a Steve Austin match or go listen to any of your favorite WWE babyface matches, people that they are truly into. You hear a buzz throughout the entire match. You can hear them willing their favorite guy on.”
On what Knight can do to improve: “His peaks are there, what he needs to do is raise his valleys. LA Knight needs to be put in positions where the people truly feel for him. He hasn’t been in that position yet. One of the things that I thought they could’ve done for LA Knight at the end of Crown Jewel is left him standing at the end.”

WWE Superstar LA Knight has been making waves in the wrestling world, but according to WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray, he still has some work to do to reach the next level. In a recent episode of the “Busted Open Radio” podcast, Bully Ray discussed Knight’s potential future following his match against Roman Reigns at Crown Jewel 2023.
While Knight put up a valiant effort against Reigns, he ultimately came up short. Bully Ray acknowledged that Knight is on his way to success but emphasized that it takes time to reach the top. He believes that Knight still has room for improvement and needs to continue honing his skills.
One aspect that Bully Ray pointed out is the lack of fan support for Knight. He compared it to matches featuring legendary wrestlers like Steve Austin, where the crowd’s energy and enthusiasm can be heard throughout the entire match. According to Bully Ray, the fans aren’t fully invested in Knight yet and aren’t actively rooting for him to win.
To improve his connection with the audience, Bully Ray suggested that Knight needs to raise his valleys. While he has shown glimpses of greatness, he needs to be put in situations where fans can truly empathize with him. Bully Ray even proposed that at the end of Crown Jewel, Knight should have been left standing, creating a lasting image that would resonate with the audience.
It’s clear that LA Knight has potential, but he still has work to do to win over the fans and reach the level of success that many WWE Superstars have achieved. As he continues to grow and develop in his career, it will be interesting to see how he evolves and whether he can capture the hearts of wrestling fans worldwide.
