Another interesting name backstage at WWE SmackDown

PWInsider is reporting that there is another interesting name backstage at WWE SmackDown.

As noted earlier, Roderick Strong is backstage and is expected to wrestle in a dark match. WWE has been bringing in veteran talent as of late for a dark match, perhaps, for a look to see if Vince McMahon is interested in moving them up to the main roster.

PWI is also reporting that LA Knight is also backstage. It was not said why he’s there but he could also be in line for a dark match tonight.

Knight, real name Shaun Ricker, previously wrestled in Impact Wrestling and he became a top star during his run as Eli Drake. During his run with Impact, he held the World Championship and the World Tag Team Title.

Knight was released by Impact in 2019 and he ended up taking time away from the business until returning to work for the NWA and ultimately signing with WWE.

Knight is 39 years old so he falls in the category of some of the other veterans who might not fit in NXT 2.0 because they are pushing to feature more younger talent.
