LA Knight Reveals How Failure Makes Him Better

WWE Superstar LA Knight talks about the creative process within the company, and using failure as motivation.

WWE Superstar LA Knight recently spoke about using failure to improve, as well as referring to the struggles he encounters in trying to become a bigger star. In a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, the SmackDown wrestler explained:

"I have ideas for things. [...] You might try and run [ideas] through somebody. 'Okay, well, yeah, we might do that.' And I think there was also just scepticism at first, like 'is this really a thing? Is this just gonna be a flash in the pan? Is this just gonna be a flavour of the month?' And that was kind of even a thing that we had talked about, and was even talked about with me.

"It was like, 'Well, we don’t want to give it to him too soon, because then [the fans] might get over it.' [...] If that’s the case and I’m not good enough to carry that, cool. Let’s go with that. But I understand the idea of also wanting to protect me at some point as well. But I have the belief in myself that I can pivot and move and adapt to whatever the situation is.

"But if you just don't give it to him at all, come on, man. I feel like I’m better than that. I don’t mean that in a boisterous way, but just, I’m confident in what I do. I’m confident in my skills. And at the same time, I want to be able to fail. Because when I fail I get better."

Knight was recently confirmed as one of the challengers for Roman Reigns' Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at the Royal Rumble event on January 27. Roman will defend the title against Knight, Randy Orton and AJ Styles in a fatal four-way match. 

H/T to Fightful.
