LA Knight is ready to fight for the Million Dollar Championship at NXT TakeOver: In Your House tonight. LA Knight recently sat down on WWE’s The Bump to talk about his upcoming match and what it means to him to have the opportunity to hold this championship.
LA Knight recognized that the title hasn’t had much prestige surrounding it but made it known that he wants to change that. He said “A lot of people might say, ‘Oh, this isn’t as prestigious as the NXT title or the WWE title,’ I say it’s more so, cause you know why? It costs more than all of them combined. Nothing compares. When you’re talking about NXT In Your House, it’s me, and it’s Cameron Grimes, let’s be honest, two of the most charismatic guys running around NXT. Even though I’m going to give Grimes that credit, he doesn’t hold a candle to LA Knight. Anybody can see that.”
He also named his favorite Million Dollar Title holders, saying “Ted DiBiase and Steve Austin (The Ringmaster).”
Continuing on, LA Knight admitted that he doesn’t have a terrible amount of ladder match experience. He said, “Have I ever climbed a ladder before? Yes. Have I had a match before? Yes. So, if I knock Cameron Grimes’ head off and put his head in the mat…If I can do that and climb the ladder, what’s it matter? I climb the ladder and grab the belt; that’s all I’ve got to do. I haven’t had a lot of ladder matches.”
