Kevin Nash, the wrestling legend, and former nWo member, recently discussed the ongoing contract talks involving LA Knight during his Kliq This podcast. Nash’s comments shed light on an intriguing dispute between Knight and WWE’s higher-ups.
Knight, whose popularity among fans continues to grow, has yet to secure championship gold in WWE despite his captivating performances and strong fan support. Many enthusiasts believe it’s only a matter of time before Knight’s career reaches new heights.
However, the real intrigue lies in the contract discussions surrounding this “megastar.” According to Kevin Nash, Triple H, WWE’s former Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development, expressed reservations about offering Knight a substantial contract.

Nash claimed that Triple H made a surprising statement regarding Knight’s contract, suggesting that he shouldn’t be paid as much as other top WWE Superstars because he allegedly lacks the ability to create his own persona.
Nash recounted his conversation with Triple H, stating, “I said, ‘So what you’re basically saying is this is a guy that basically is a bottom feeder. I mean, the guy, it took him 29 years to get over, so he’s gonna make mistakes along the way because he wasn’t like he had any kind of clear-cut pattern or plans to make it besides he figured he just, The Rock and Steve have been gone long enough that he would just do their sh*t.'”
Furthermore, Nash disclosed that Triple H joked about Knight’s age and questioned whether his fan appeal would diminish as rapidly as his hairline. This raised concerns about Knight’s potential to maintain his popularity in WWE.
Nash concluded by suggesting that Triple H was reluctant to pay Knight the same as other wrestlers who create their own characters, hinting at a potential roadblock in contract negotiations.
While it’s important to note that these allegations are hearsay and the authenticity of the conversation between Nash and Triple H remains unverified, they offer an intriguing glimpse into the complex world of contract negotiations in WWE.
