Popular WWE Star Looking To Become Universal Champion ‘Sooner Than Later’ WWE

LA Knight has found himself becoming one of the most popular stars on the SmackDown brand in recent months.

Despite his popularity, Knight has been on somewhat of a losing streak in recent weeks, most recently picking up a loss to Xavier Woods on last week’s show.

However, despite this, Knight is still currently looked at as ‘the frontrunner’ to win this year’s Money In The Bank briefcase, which would entitle him to a match against the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.

Speaking with KTAL NBC 6, Knight said that he’s looking at becoming the Universal Champion ‘sooner than later’.

He said:

“Not only are they looking for me to become world champ sometime soon, but I’m looking to become the WWE Universal Champion sooner than later.”

He was then asked by a fan if he could have a dream match against anyone, who would he face.

Knight kept his answer simple; anyone with a title he can win.

He said:

“Dream matches, you think about people from the past who aren’t doing it anymore. There are a couple of those. Everyone is talking about it again, the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, that makes me look at Roman Reigns. Even Gunther, with the Intercontinental Championship. Austin Theory for the United States Championship. Any one of those guys, who I could take a piece of gold off of, that would be my dream match.”
