Zayn also has a lot of experience when it comes to having programs with celebrities in WWE. Last year, Sami Zayn brought in Logan Paul during Zayn’s feud with Kevin Owens. It also backfired on him in the end.
This time around, Zayn has been engaged in a feud with Jackass star Johnny Knoxville. The two have gone back and forth during their rivalry. Recently, Knoxville shared Zayn’s number with the city of Los Angeles via an airplane banner.
While speaking to BT Sport ahead of his match against Johnny Knoxville, Sami Zayn stated that he thinks Johnny Knoxville has a different kind of commitment to wrestling than Logan Paul.
“Yeah, it’s almost a psychotic level (Knoxville’s dedication to the storyline). He would go to my Instagram profile and fight with fans in the comments section. What are you doing? He’s filming a TV show. Aren’t you busy? He’s getting in the mud with trolls. He’s a troll. He’s trolling me. It really is crazy, man. That’s a different kind of commitment, even doing something with Logan Paul, who’s a social media guy, he’s not doing that. He’s not bickering with fans. He’s crazy. He’s Johnny Knoxville, he’s crazy.”
Johnny Knoxville also defeated Sami Zayn by bringing Jackass to WrestleMania 38. We will have to wait and see what WWE will have planned for Sami Zayn now that his feud with Knoxville is done.
