WWE SmackDown star LA Knight has revealed that one of his signature catchphrases was created by accident.
Since returning to his ‘LA Knight’ character on the main roster, the former Million Dollar Champion has gained a lot of popularity.
Many fans have compared Knight to Attitude Era stars like Steve Austin and the Rock due to his promo skills.
Knight has how revealed that his ‘let me talk to ya’ catchphrase was a spur of the moment creation he first used during an interview segment that was running long.
Explaining that AEW’s Brian Cage was there for the birth of ‘let me talk to ya’, Knight said:
“‘Let me talk to ya’ kind of happened out of an accident.
“It was in 2010. I was tagging with Brian Cage at the time and we were out in California and the interviewee — we’d do this show called Mach One Wrestling.
“It was always these Friday night shows and afterwards, they’d have little interview sessions and stuff that they’d put online and in that, it felt like the interviewer was just interviewing Brian way too long…
“I said, ‘Let me talk to ya’ and I was just like, oh man, that might be a good little start, and so I just started using it and eventually, it’s just kind of become a thing.”
Many are calling for Knight to win the Money in the Bank ladder match set to take place at the July 1 premium live event.
