In the world of professional wrestling, speculation and anticipation often run rampant, especially when it comes to potential matchups and championship victories. One such topic of discussion recently emerged on the “Keepin’ It 100” podcast, where wrestling veteran Disco Inferno offered his insights on whether LA Knight could dethrone the long-reigning WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns, at WrestleMania 40.
Roman Reigns: The Reigning Dominator
Roman Reigns, known as “The Tribal Chief,” has been a dominant force in the WWE for nearly three years. His remarkable championship reign recently reached a milestone, surpassing 1000 days as the world champion. Reigns has successfully defended his title against formidable opponents, including the likes of Cody Rhodes, Sami Zayn, and Jey Uso in recent months. His supremacy in the wrestling world has become the stuff of legend.
LA Knight: The Rising Star
On the flip side, LA Knight has been making waves as one of the fast-rising stars on the WWE main roster. The Megastar’s popularity has experienced exponential growth over the past few months, consistently receiving thunderous ovations from fans wherever he performs. His charismatic presence and in-ring skills have quickly endeared him to the WWE Universe.
A Fan’s Intriguing Question

Disco Inferno’s Insightful Take
In response to this tantalizing hypothetical, Disco Inferno, a seasoned figure in the wrestling community, shared his perspective. He pointed out that while LA Knight is undoubtedly on the rise and garnering immense fan support, Cody Rhodes remains the top contender in his eyes.
“I don’t know. (…) You know, the fans are kind of when a babyface is getting over, the fans are kind of trying to let you know, ‘hey, keep pushing this guy higher,’ you know, because they cheer louder each time he comes out. You’ve literally seen that with LA Knight. We’ve seen that with Cody Rhodes. But, is his pop as big as Cody’s right now? And I would say no, right. So, Cody, to me, is still the guy right now because his pops are ridiculous. I still can’t figure that out. It’s like, why is he gets these unbelievable monster pops, you know. But LA Knight is getting there,” he said.
The Ever-Evolving WWE Landscape
In the ever-evolving landscape of WWE, the possibilities are endless, and fan speculation is part of what makes the sport so exciting. As LA Knight continues to rise through the ranks, only time will tell whether he can achieve his dream of championship gold on the main roster.
