Shawn Michaels Responds To Kevin Nash’s Comments About LA Knight

LA Knight cuts a promo

Shawn Michaels is happy to see LA Knight find success on the main roster, even if Kevin Nash doesn’t quite understand it.

Kevin Nash recently sparked controversy online by claiming that LA Knight is just a rip-off of The Rock and that there’s nothing original about his presentation. Given Knight’s incredible popularity, the comments didn’t sit well with many on social media.

During an interview with Sportskeeda’s WrestleBinge, Shawn Michaels who worked with Knight in NXT and has been friends with Nash for years, gave his thoughts. HBK said that everyone is entitled to an opinion, even if people don’t agree. He went on to praise Knight for his work since moving to SmackDown.

“No, except that Kevin Nash has always given his opinion on stuff. Dare I say, so does Sportskeeda and every other website out there [laughs]. You guys got opinions on lots of people, every wrestling fan does. You’re absolutely allowed to have them, as Kevin’s allowed to have his. We can all agree or respectfully disagree. So I don’t know that LA Knight has any problem with what Kevin Nash says, or anybody else.

I know him as somebody that we very much enjoyed working with here in NXT. Nobody’s happier to see him thriving and doing well on the main roster more than I am. We here at NXT are very proud of all the men and women that got brought up in the draft. Obviously very excited about that. It speaks well of NXT, and it speaks well of what the Performance Center has done for the WWE,”

Kevin Nash Apologies For Criticising LA Knight

As LA Knight sets his sights on United States Championship gold, the discussions around his rise continue. Following on from his recent criticism of the star, Kevin Nash has now apologised for not knowing who was.

Nash said he’s happy to see Knight performing well as it makes Triple H’s life easier and as a WWE shareholder, it will eventually make him more money.
