LA Knight once talked to Chris Van Vliet where he was asked about his experience working with The Undertaker. “He was about this close to getting the slap right in the mouth, but I decided to spare him,” said LA. He, however, didn’t fail to acknowledge the fact that the sound of The Undertaker’s gong brought him chills.
It was indeed a great moment for LA who was able to bring out his best even with The Deadman standing close to him. The audience too didn’t fail to shower praises to him in front of the WWE HOF’er. It was an achievement for LA Knight to have had the segment a part of his WWE run. “That’s a big feather in my cap,” said Knight. RAW is XXX will remain to be a special one for the 40-year-old star.
