Pro wrestling circles are buzzing with anticipation as LA Knight is set to face off against Roman Reigns for the undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WWE Crown Jewel. This high-stakes event will be hosted on Saturday, November 4, 2023, in the majestic settings of the Mohammed Abdo Theater in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
On an electrifying episode of WWE SmackDown aired on October 27, the tension between Reigns and Knight was palpable. The intensity peaked during a contract signing and rose further when Knight emerged victorious over Jimmy Uso, a member of the Tribal Chief’s inner circle.
Building on this momentum, Knight defeated Solo Sikoa in a Street Fight during the WWE Live show held in London, England, on October 29. The victory allowed Knight to send a defiant message to Reigns, which quickly gained traction when shared on Twitter.
In the post-match video, Knight boisterously stated, “First, I take care of junior Tribal Chief, Jimmy Uso tonight. Solo goes crashing through the table. They call him the Street Champion. What street? You’re not the Street Champion in my street.”
Knight’s fiery words continued, setting the stage for the Crown Jewel event: “In 6 days, only 6 days from Crown Jewel, and I will be holding the crown jewel of WWE. The beginning of the end for The Tribal Chief, The Bloodline, and the beginning of the LA Knight era. Because there can be no other way…because I made it that way. That’s not an insult… that is just a fact of life.”
Emphasizing his dominance, Knight added, “Whenever you see your Tribal Chief, make sure you remind him…ask him, ‘Who’s game is it?’ And you’ll hear the damn world saying – LAKnight.”
Despite the hype surrounding LA Knight’s upcoming match, the superstar has been addressing the ‘YEAH Revolution’ Twitter account, firmly stating that he is not affiliated with it. Wrestling veteran Booker T, meanwhile, has thrown his support behind Knight, strongly advocating for WWE to “pull the trigger” on him.
