According to a recent survey conducted by Wrestling Republic, 82% of fans believe that LA Knight should win this year’s Money in the Bank briefcase.
With over 800 responses, the survey clearly demonstrates the WWE Universe’s overwhelming support for LA Knight as the next Mr. Money in the Bank.
LA Knight earned his spot in the match by defeating Montez Ford on last Friday’s episode of SmackDown. However, his path to victory won’t be easy, as he will have to outshine at least five other competitors in the highly anticipated ladder match, including the likes of Shinsuke Nakamura and Ricochet.
The electrifying event is scheduled to take place on July 1st at the prestigious O2 Arena in London, England. This marks the first time that Money in the Bank will be hosted in the United Kingdom.
The journey to this moment has been a rollercoaster for Knight, formerly known as Max Dupri when he was called up to the main roster last year as the manager of the “Maximum Male Models.” However, Knight was eventually repackaged back as LA Knight last summer, leading to a captivating feud with the returning Bray Wyatt.
Despite not being prominently featured on recent Premium Live Events such as WrestleMania, Backlash, and Night of Champions, Knight has managed to captivate the hearts of wrestling fans. The crowd’s chants of “LA Knight” at both Backlash and Night of Champions, even though he wasn’t part of the shows, demonstrate the remarkable connection he has forged with the audience.
With the survey results highlighting the fans’ desire for LA Knight to secure the coveted briefcase, the question remains: Will their wishes come true? Wrestling enthusiasts eagerly await the event, holding their breath to witness whether LA Knight can fulfill their aspirations and claim victory at Money in the Bank. July 1st will undoubtedly be a monumental night for both LA Knight and his ardent supporters, as the suspense and anticipation continue to build.
