Originally published at LA Knight opens up about start & stop runs in IMPACT Wrestling, regime consistently changing
Knight touched on being the champion but not being the main event.
From 2015-2019, L.A. Knight, formerly known as Eli Drake worked with IMPACT Wrestling. Throughout his time in the company, he become World Champion, Tag Team Champion and held the company’s version of the Television Title.
Knight does feel there were multiple start and stop pushes for him and thinks that was due to the regime consistently changing. He shared that on Busted Open Radio and added that although he was champion, he was not the main event.
If we go back to IMPACT (Wrestling), because you’re talking about gas break, gas break, gas break. God damn, if they didn’t change the regime there, who was running the place every six months it seems like so at that point, it’s like I started to get some momentum, new people come in. I start to get some momentum, new people come in. I get some momentum, new people come in. God, okay, well when are we gonna get this thing rolling? And then finally at some point, they kind of threw me a bone but kind of didn’t. I was like the champion but still wasn’t the main event which made no damn sense. So, it was like they gave me the trust but didn’t.
The 3/31 Friday Night SmackDown featured the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal which Knight was a part of.
