Knight and Waller were asked about wrestlers’ physiques. 

Coming up in February is WWE’s Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event. It is emanating from Optus Stadium in Perth, Australia. 

WWE talents have been promoting the upcoming event for months and the latest to do so were L.A. Knight and Australia’s own Grayson Waller. They guest appeared on The Kyle & Jackie O Show and they were talking about taking care of their bodies and the injuries that come with being a wrestler.

The show host asked Knight and Waller if there’s a ‘cheap way’ wrestlers can bulk up, specifically saying ‘roid it up’. This led to Knight mentioning that WWE talents get drug tested every month. 

Knight: You can’t (use steroids).

Waller: I wish. That would make my life so much easier if I was to cheat (in that) way (he jokingly said). 

Knight: Yeah, because that would actually make recovery easy but, no, every month we get tested. Every single month. 

Knight is going to be competing for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at the Royal Rumble. He’ll be in a Fatal 4-Way with A.J. Styles, Randy Orton and the champion Roman Reigns. 

A contract signing for the title match is taking place on the 1/19 Friday Night SmackDown.
