Johnny Knoxville made a name for himself as part of the Jackass film franchise. Putting his body through the most ridiculous amount of painful stunts for the enjoyment of fans certainly made him popular as well. He also opened up about his upcoming match at WrestleMania 38.
Knoxville has been a regular feature in WWE since the Royal Rumble back in January. This is due to his feud with Sami Zayn, which further escalated with every passing week.
They are set to duke it out at WrestleMania 38. While speaking with Bleacher Report, Johnny Knoxville revealed that he will have some of his Jackass crew members present with him at the Show of Shows.
“I’ll definitely have some guys there. And I’ll do my best to keep them out of the ring. This is between me and Sami, but I don’t know. Sami brings out the worst in everybody.
You don’t know how many — I went to a Los Angeles Lakers game the other night, right? And walking alone, I see seven cops standing there. And they’re like, ‘Hey Knoxville, loved you at the Royal Rumble. F–k Sami Zayn!’ I’m not lying, at least five or six different people that night said “F–k Sami Zayn” unprompted to me.
Of course, after they said it, I’d get them to say it again, but it was just out of the blue. He just brings out the worst in everybody.”
Sami Zayn is certainly looking for revenge and is likely to do so at WrestleMania 38 when he gets his hands on Johnny Knoxville. We will have to wait and see whether Zayn will be able to win the match or not.
