Sami Zayn recently resigned with WWE. The former Intercontinental Champion soon found himself an unexpected opponent in Johnny Knoxville. The Jackass star even appeared as a surprise entrant at the 2022 Royal Rumble.

Knoxville inadvertently cost Zayn his Mania main event while the latter was busy taunting him following the helluva kick elimination. Zayn later revealed he would appear at the Jackass Forever premier to confront the actor.

Zayn showed up to the Las Vegas premier Wednesday dressed in a three piece. He had a brief interaction with ET before Knoxville arrived to ‘ruin’ the Zayn’s moment at the red carpet.

The two then had a heated exchange. Knoxville asked Zayn why he was at the event to which the WWE star replied that the actor came up to Zayn’s workplace “uninvited and getting in my business all the time.”


WWE heavily relies on celebrity appearances for fanfare. The WWE Hall of Fame has its very own ‘celebrity wing,’ which includes the likes of former President Donald Trump and Kid Rock, to name a few.

The company may have found a future celebrity Hall of Fame inductee in Johnny Knoxville. The 50-year-old is busy promoting the latest Jackass instalment. We’ll have to wait to find out how WWE takes the Zayn vs. Knoxville feud moving forward.
