On a recent edition of his “Wrestling With Freddie” podcast, former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. analyzed how WWE should use and protect LA Knight moving forward following his loss against Roman Reigns at WWE Crown Jewel 2023.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On WWE needing to use Knight: “It took them a long time with Bryan Danielson, the Yes Movement is what got that going; there were no plans for him. I hope that they listen to their audience and give LA Knight an ‘A’ storyline, whether it’s for a championship or not.”
On wanting to see LA Knight in a feud against a top-level star: “If it’s not a championship, it still has to be a top-level person, protect this dude because he’s an older guy; he’s not going to have a 20-year career. He could have a seven to 10-year career. So, use those years wisely, man, and get the most out of him and keep focused on him.”
