At last, WWE are pushing LA Knight up the card, and as of now, he seems like the firm favourite to win the men’s Money in the Bank briefcase next month.
However, one notable wrestling personality, the infamous Jim Cornette has labelled the push of LA as the “strangest push in the history of wrestling”.
Discussing LA’s push on his podcast, Cornette stated:
“If this is somehow planned to be this way, this is the strangest push in the history of wrestling. No matter how much they like him, the fans I mean, they either beat him or he wins by the skin of his teeth and generally gets the short end of the stick every time. People cheer for him because they want to”.
Whilst Cornette is well known for having controversial takes on modern wrestling, he does have a point when it comes to the way WWE have pushed LA. LA managed to get himself over organically during the feud with Bray Wyatt, and it took several months for WWE to capitalise on LA’s popularity.
