Johnny Knoxville entered the Royal Rumble match with one goal in mind. He wanted to win and earn a spot at WrestleMania. The Jackass star lost that match, but he’s still getting a title shot on the grandest stage of them all.

Knoxville and Sami Zayn are in a feud and that isn’t stopping. Johnny even raided WWE’s LA pop-up shop to destroy some Zayn merchandise. The fact that Zayn’s new t-shirt is a Jackass Forever parody isn’t lost on anyone either.

Spoiler: Sami Zayn won the Intercontinental Championship from Shinsuke Nakamura. That match will air on next week’s SmackDown and you can click here for all hose spoilers.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said that it “looks like Johnny Knoxville” will get an IC Title shot at the show of shows. This will obviously be a marquee match given Knoxville’s popularity.


This booking also proves how much value WWE places on Sami Zayn. He worked with Logan Paul at last year’s WrestleMania and he’s interacted with tons of other celebrities on-screen. The fact that WWE keeps putting him in these positions should not be lost on anyone. It should also be a pretty fun match for WrestleMania.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
