LA Knight Sends Message To The Bloodline After WWE King Of The Ring Loss

LA Knight Sends Message To The Bloodline After WWE King Of The Ring Loss WWE

WWE star LA Knight has now commented after being eliminated from the King of the Ring tournament by Tama Tonga.

Knight and Tonga faced off on Friday’s (May 17) edition of SmackDown. Tonga was ultimately victorious, following distractions from Tonga Loa and Solo Sikoa.

During a WWE Digital Exclusive interview, Knight said it felt like he was fighting the Bloodline three-on-one.

Discussing the loss, Knight said:

“Let me talk to you. Here’s the thing, man. Yeah, three-on-one out there with The Bloodline. You got three savages out there. Look, there’s only so much I can do. I can only keep so many eyes in so many sides of my head.

“Here’s the deal. Yeah, King of the Ring ain’t happening for me, boo-hoo. What can you do about it? I can’t do a damn thing about it but keep moving forward. Keep moving. Why? Because I don’t know how to quit.

“Maybe they’d a little defect with me, okay? But then I walk back here, and I’m just swatting flies off me, mosquitos just trying to bite me off, trying to suck my blood. Who is this new kid talking about first-round draft pick? (Claps) Good for you. Like somebody cares about it. I’ll tell you what, tell somebody who cares. Tell your mommy, for all you need to. I hope she’s real proud of you.

“Make sure you tell her, make sure she gives you that congratulations. But in the meantime, I told you before, I’ll tell you again. Go play somewhere, I’m busy because you will know, everybody around this place knows whose game this is, with everybody saying ‘LA Knight.’ Yeah.”

Tama Tonga is now slated to face Randy Orton in the SmackDown semi-final match of the King of the Ring tournament.

The winner of this match will face the winner of the GUNTHER vs. Jey Uso semi-final, with the finals taking place at the May 25 King & Queen of the Ring premium live event.
