Johnny Knoxville and Sami Zayn’s feud has been well documented on social media for the past few weeks. Ahead of their ‘Anything Goes’ match at WrestleMania 38, the Jackass star spoke about his plans for the big night of the WWE calendar.

Knoxville sat down to speak with Metro Entertainment and talked about how he is constantly training for his upcoming match. He expressed he intends to retire Zayn from pro wrestling when they fight at “The Grandest Stage of Them All.”

“If you need him to clean your house or maybe give you a pedicure, he’s going to need a lot of odd jobs after WrestleMania because I’m gonna retire him,” Knoxville said. “I’m training a bunch, and I can’t wait to punch Sami Zayn in that stupid face. I go to sleep thinking about it, I dream about it, I wake up in the morning and it’s the first thing I think about. He’s gonna pay at WrestleMania.

“I have a personal wrestling coach and he’s teaching me all the right moves,” he added ‘The Warp Your Head Off Hold, the Stepover Toe Hold – all these things, I’m gonna bring back.”


WrestleMania will mark Knoxville’s second major WWE pay-per-view appearance. He was asked if he sees a future ahead in the wrestling business, to which he answered he’d love to do more for the company.

“I would love to come back and do something more in the future! It’s been a dream come true working with the WWE,” he said. “It’s been so much fun, I didn’t realise I would become so completely obsessed with it like I have, it’s so fun!”

He added, “Oh, I got a few special things planned. I don’t wanna give it away, but they said ‘anything goes’ – that’s my specialty!”

The two will go one-on-one in an “Anything Goes” match on night two of WrestleMania 38; the event will be taking place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on Saturday, April 2, and Sunday, April 3rd. Of course, we will have full coverage here at Ringside News.
