Report: Big Name Done With WWE NXT?
Don't expect to see much (if anything) else from this wrestler in WWE NXT 2.0...
If the recent main roster teases weren't enough of a clue, WWE currently has no more plans for LA Knight in NXT 2.0 going forward, suggesting he is done with the developmental brand.
This is according to Fightful Select, who report that the former Eli Drake is now considered a main roster wrestler following recent dark appearances at SmackDown tapings.
While Knight hasn't actually wrestled on a SmackDown taping since January, he appears to be putting a group together. On 15 April, he introduced Face, the former Mace, as the first member of Knight Model Management, before seemingly adding Mansoor to his crew the following week. While neither of these angles made it to television, both found their way to the internet afterwards.
Fightful reported on 7 April that WWE was considering calling Knight up from NXT as a manager, not a wrestler, due to his strong promo game. This now appears to be coming to fruition, though nothing is certain in WWE until it happens on television. Plans change, pal.
Knight's last NXT match came at Stand & Deliver 2022 on 2 April, where he lost to Gunther. The 39-year-old has been with WWE since signing in February 2021.
