Top AEW Star Recalls Working With LA Knight Before WWE Run

Top AEW Star Recalls Working With LA Knight Before WWE Run AEW

A top AEW star has recalled working with LA Knight before his WWE run.

LA Knight has quickly become one of the most popular WWE stars in the entire company. Despite coming up short at WWE Money In The Bank, many fans are looking forward to what’s next for the star.

One of Knight’s fans just happened to be his former NWA co-worker and current AEW star Thunder Rosa.

On the latest episode of Busted Open Radio, Rosa commented on LA Knight’s success in WWE. She said:

“I was thinking about an interview LA Knight just did very recently, talking about, for ten years he didn’t have any money.”

“He was getting evicted all the time because the only thing that he was doing was wrestling, and it wasn’t paying enough.”

“Look at him, this Saturday. I worked with LA Knight in NWA, he’s one of my favorite people from NWA.”

“He was super kind, super smart, super charismatic, and it just filled me with so much joy seeing him on such a huge platform doing Money in the Bank. People were cheering for him, people wanted him to win.”

On Knight’s comparisons to The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin, Rosa said:

“For the first time after 15-20 years, where he had that dream, he fought for that dream, he’s finally having that moment.”

“Regardless of what criticisms he’s creating because of how he developed his character and how he’s whatever, he’s living his dream, and […] it’s amazing. I have so many other examples of other people who did the same thing,” 

“John Cena, when he said he got paid — when he first started working with WWE — 12,000 dollars. That’s what he did, he […] slept and dreamed professional wrestling. And now he’s one of the biggest superstars in the world.”

Despite being advertised for the new AEW Collision show, Thunder Rosa has yet to make her in-ring return in All Elite Wrestling.
