Last week, a story circulated that LA Knight was near signing a new five year extension with WWE. However, according to Fightful Select, while the two sides are negotiating on a new deal, they are said to be “far apart” on money. There was a five year deal offered, but it does not seem likely to be signed anytime soon. The lack of an extension is not expected to change any plans for Knight, whose current deal runs into 2025.
Knight has been the star recently. Check out what he has been doing:
Opinion: It makes sense that WWE is going to want to keep Knight around as he is arguably the hottest thing in the company at the moment. That being said, Knight is still locked in for well over a year so it isn’t like time is of the essence. Knight feels like he is entering the biggest stretch he has ever had and if that is the case, the money will come with it soon enough.
How has Knight been doing recently? How far will he go in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
