In the latest wrestling news straight from the main roster, WWE superstar LA Knight is rumor mill’s hottest topic. With immense fan-adulation for his charismatic persona and signature catchphrases, Knight’s career is currently at its zenith. However, a sudden twist of fate, in the form of a positive COVID-19 test, led to Knight’s surprise withdrawal from this week’s SmackDown.
Knight’s withdrawal from the show sparked buzz about his potential inclusion in a significant WWE event upon his return. Notably, the superstar was scheduled to be a part of John Cena’s segment on SmackDown this week; a prelude to his likely involvement in the upcoming Fastlane match scheduled for Saturday, October 7th, 2023.
During an interaction at the Wrestling Observer Radio, it was hinted that upon Knight’s successful recovery from COVID-19, he might potentially become Cena’s partner at Fastlane. “LA Knight and John Cena is, in theory, the Pay-Per-View main event,” noted Dave Meltzer.
However, given the unpredictable nature of this game, the recovery, return, and consequent partnering of LA Knight with John Cena are all dependent on Knight’s health. Should he return on time, we might see Knight find a way to slip into the match previously set for AJ Styles.
Styles, in the current scenario, was Cena’s partner until an onslaught by the Bloodline backstage saw him replaced. The Fastlane contract witnessed three signatures; Jimmy Uso, Solo Sikoa, and a now partner-less John Cena.
Should Knight join the game, AJ Styles would have two options: carry forward his injury narrative or confront the Bloodline, which seems highly unlikely considering his onscreen persona.
As fans eagerly await the Fastlane face-off at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana, all eyes are on LA Knight’s potential return to the ring. Stay tuned to Ringside News for comprehensive coverage on WWE Fastlane and further insights from the wrestling world.
