LA Knight transitions to managerial role during Smackdown dark match

One NXT guy who’s probably be going to be called up to the main roster soon is LA Knight…but judging from the dark match at Smackdown last night, he won’t be putting on his wrestling boots.

The former Impact champion was brought to the show as a manager of the newly-repackaged Mace from Retribution. Knight, decked in a full suit, said prior to the match that he was there to launch the Knight Model Management and Mace was his first client.

WWE typically uses dark matches to float new ideas and see how fans react live. Knight was last seen at NXT Stand & Deliver, losing a match to Gunther.

The 39-year-old signed with WWE in 2021 after a successful run with Impact Wrestling.
