During recent conversation with Haus of Wrestling, Ilja Dragunov opened up about sharing the NXT spotlight with LA Knight. LA Knight served as the special guest referee in Dragunov's NXT title defense against Dominik Mysterio.
Dragunov stated, “LA Knight has definitely had success for very obvious reasons. I mean, like, he probably has more charisma in his little finger than a lot of people in this business will ever have in their entire body. So, that’s an obvious fact for me. It was a weird moment because sharing the ring with him for the very first time in this stipulation, just having him as a referee in the match was kind of like, it was a weird experience. It was still like absolutely something I’d like to remember because again, the whole show on that day was historical. But, just like, how he soaks the reactions of the people, the people don’t even have the choice to not react to him, they need to react to him. So they reacted to Dominic, they reacted to what I was doing, and they also automatically reacted to him so it was a very interesting aura of shifting energies.”
In the interview, Dragunov emphasized LA Knight's undeniable charisma and the unique aura he brings to the ring. He also pointed out how the energy in the room shifted, as the crowd reacted not just to him and Dominik Mysterio, but also automatically to LA Knight, who was only serving as a referee.
