HBK did the right thing.

Head of NXT, Shawn Michaels recently appeared on Busted Open Radio, and one of the topics HBK discussed was the popularity of LA Knight. During the course of the interview, HBK would seem to imply that he had to fight to keep LA employed in WWE:

"He's somebody that when he was here, I will say this. I enjoyed him. I liked him. He's a grown man. I thought he was going to be a perfect fit for the main roster. There were times when we were having difficulty down here when it wasn't always maybe my call on some things, that I had to go to bat for some people and really had to make sure that, you know, I impressed on them, like, 'My goodness, you don't want to sleep on these people. You don't want to lose these people”

“Let's keep them around. Trust me on this' I'm very thankful that they did because again, LA Knight is a guy that is enjoying that right now, and again, I think the WWE Universe is enjoying LA Knight right now. He's somebody that I think's got a great future. I'm excited for him and I'm happy for him”.

Whilst some fans have been critical in relation to how WWE have booked LA, it looks like WWE are finally doing something with the popular star.

LA is expected to be a part of the battle royal at SummerSlam, and he seems to be the odds-on favourite at this stage. What do you make of LA’s current booking in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
