According to Michaels, when Knight joined NXT, they could see that he was having a connection with the audience, and has a plan to move him in a certain direction. Initially, Knight was worried that he wouldn’t have a strong heel strike to make it into the starting lineup. However, Michaels encouraged him to embrace his fame as a baby face and assured him it would generate even more heat when he finally turned his heels.

when he first started,  shawn told him “We’ll start moving you in that direction,’ and of course he’s nervous because, ‘I haven’t had a good heel run.’ I tried to explain to him, ‘Dude, they like you. I don’t think it’s a good idea for us to go ahead and fight this. Go and ride with it. One is as good as the other and if you’re a bit like babyface, heck, when you turn around, it’s going to be a lot hotter. I’m not surprised by that.

Michaels also shared that he thought Knight was a perfect candidate for the main roster during his time at NXT. went hit the ball to find some talent, including Knight, to make sure they weren’t overlooked or lost in the shuffle. He expressed gratitude that WWE kept Knight around, for him he is currently enjoying success on the main roster and has become a favorite in the WWE Universe.

“He’s the one that when he’s here, I’ll say this. I appreciate it. I love it. He is an adult. I think he would be a perfect candidate for the starting XI. There are times when we fight here when maybe I don’t always decide on certain things and I have to fight for some people and I really have to make sure that, you know, I’ve made an impression. , like, ‘God, you don’t want to sleep on these people. You don’t want to lose these people. Keep them around. Trust me. I’m so grateful they did because once again LA Knight is a guy who likes it right now and again I think the WWE Universe is enjoying LA Knight right now. He’s someone I think has a bright future. I’m so excited for him and I’m happy for him.”

 

About the difference in opinion between Michaels and Triple H about talent being picked for the starting lineup, Michaels was mentions that ‘they are almost always consistent with their opinions, with sometimes small differences. He notes that Triple H tends to lean more towards seriousness and old-fashioned wrestling, while Michaels likes to add lightness and fun to certain situations. However, these differences are very minor and they generally agree on talent decisions.

 

“It’s hard for me to answer because we’re almost always in agreement. together, 99.9% of the time. I don’t.” I don’t think there’s anything where we’re completely different. There are only times when he will be a lot more serious about things. Sometimes I’m a little lighter. I like the mix of humor and entertainment where it’s a bit more legit and wants a little more seriousness and a bit more classic. So, I think, those are the only areas where we will sometimes distinguish. That’s why the game is so serious and the only time he can relax is when he’s DXing with me. I feel like that’s the only area and you know, it’s usually just little moments here and there where I’d say maybe let’s just laugh it off and he’ll want to keep it serious. Those are unique areas, but beyond that, I don’t think we’ve ever been in two completely opposite positions, at least not.”

Overall, Shawn Michaels has praised LA Knight and is pleased to see him succeeding in the main roster. The WWE Universe keeps appreciating Knight’s performance and Michaels believes he has a bright future ahead of him.
