Sami Zayn and Johnny Knoxville began their feud prior of the 2022 Royal Rumble. Knoxville recently played a role in Zayn losing the Intercontinental Championship to Ricochet, and the two men have been trading shots for the previous few months. They’ll face off in an Anything Goes Match at WrestleMania 38.
Sami Zayn has grown to love the Jackass series. Zayn went on to say that he never liked Jackass because he doesn’t like seeing people get wounded. However, given the career he selected, he recognizes the irony of that statement. In an interview with Metro.co.uk’s Alistair McGeorge, Sami revealed that he was never a fan of the 2002 film series, but has now realized how popular it is.
Well if I’m being honest, I was actually never a fan. I knew it was obviously very popular, and I think now that I’m working with Johnny Knoxville I’m realizing a lot more how popular it actually was. I was just so consumed by wrestling at that age, that I kinda never took to it. If I’m being honest, I think I kinda missed the point of Jackass when I was younger.
Sami finds it amusing that he did the same thing with Jackass, as someone who is passionate with wrestling and believes that people constantly misunderstand the essence of it. Knoxville recently exacted vengeance on Zayn by pulling a funny joke on him.
Zayn, on the other hand stopped by by Knoxville, Tennessee, the hometown of Johnny Knoxville to ask people about their thoughts on Johnny. In terms of antics, the two have switched back and forth throughout their rivalry. On April 3rd Sunday, the two will face off at WrestleMania 38, a pay-per-view event. Jackass Forever is now available to stream on Paramount Plus.
