WWE Hall Of Famer Hasn’t ‘Bought Into’ LA Knight WWE

AEW’s Jim Ross has shared his thoughts on WWE’s LA Knight stating he’s got a “good future ahead of him” despite some issues.

Speaking on the Grilling JR podcast, the WWE Hall of Famer looked at Knight, saying:

“LA Knight is one of the favorites of the (WWE) office. I haven’t totally bought into his persona.

“And not to say that in a bad way – I haven’t seen him do anything I didn’t like. I just gotta feel it more. I gotta feel it more.

“They gotta do a little bit more character development to get me to buy in on who this dude is and why I should give a s**t.

“But, he’s got a good future ahead of him, no doubt about that.

“And LA Knight can talk, he can take bumps, he can feed a comeback, he can mechanically execute what is needed to be done.”
