WATCH: Eli Drake Debuts On NXT With A New Name

Former IMPACT World Champion Eli Drake has debuted on WWE programming … And he’s been given a new ringname.

It all went down on the pre-show of NXT  TakeOver: Vengeance Day.

Drake was introduced under the monicker LA Knight.

LA Knight was previously signed to WWE under the ringname Slate Randall, but his first tenure with the company was short-lived.

Following his brief stint in WWE, Slate/Eli/LA would join IMPACT and eventually become the company’s World Champion.
