WWE SmackDown star LA Knight recently appeared on Mark Andrews’ My Love Letter to Wrestling podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling. During the discussion, LA Knight reflected on his run with Impact Wrestling as Eli Drake:

“Very mixed. I mean, look, that was the first time I’ve seen real money and made real money in wrestling. So yeah, there’s a lot of fun, there’s also a lot of frustration that I didn’t leave sooner and not because there was an issue there necessarily but just because I had the opportunity to come here [WWE] earlier.

I was lured in by that evil, evil money. And you know, so it was a matter of eventually realizing that I had reached the ceiling there as far as that was concerned. Even though I was being offered less here to start, the potential is so much greater where it was just like I gotta take the bet on myself eventually and make it pay off.”
