First look as LA Knight as a manager, introduction of the first member of his new stable



As noted on Friday night, LA Knight made his managerial debut during a dark segment before WWE Friday Night SmackDown.

The footage of Knight can be seen below. Knight announces to the fans that he is launching the Knight Model Management stable and the first member of the group is Mace, formerly of the Retribution stable. Knight described his stable as a talent agency and it was made clear that he is a heel after he insulted the fans.

It's unclear if this is officially the end for Knight as an in-ring competitor or if this is a wrestler/manager role. The decision to make Knight a manager is what Vince McMahon wanted to do several months back with Adam Cole. The idea with Cole was that he would manage Keith Lee. There was also talk of having him change his name and cut his hair. Cole passed on signing a new contract and made the jump to AEW.
