In this year's edition of the Royal Rumble, we had two entrances into the male royal brawl, which had little or nothing to do with wrestling, with these two characters who despite having world fame, have never been a wrestling pro before.
We are obviously talking about Johnny Knoxville and Bad Bunny. If the latter has already fought in last year's Royal Rumble and then even had a match in Wrestlemania 37, where Bunny joined Damian Priest against the team formed by The Miz and John Morrison, the other Hollywood actor, starring in the irreverent film series "Jackass", he was in his first official appearance in a match with WWE, with the actor taking several not indifferent bumps for a non-wrestler.
As it turns out, the internal feud between Knoxville and Sami Zayn is reportedly continuing, with the Friday Night Smackdown wrestler also following the actor in his premiere of the next Jackass movie, in Los Angeles last night, with WWE following a storyline could thus continue, to keep the actor on-screen, despite not having the slightest background in the world of wrestling.
Johnny Knoxville on the 2022 Royal Rumble
According to what was stated in the last few hours by the well-known overseas site PW Insider, it would seem that WWE is intent on making Johnny Knoxville appear again on its televisions, with the pages of the site that in fact report: "The most interesting thing to note is that the whole thing was part of a plan, WWE asked its fans via poll if they enjoyed seeing the Knoxville appearances and especially if they would still like to see additional appearances of the actor in the programs.
of WWE and also to evaluate how happy they were or would be happy to see Knoxville appear again." Apparently, therefore, the management of the McMahon-owned company seems to be thinking of bringing the famous Hollywood caricature actor back to the scene, with his hilarious and crazy skits that could then reappear in that of the WWE soon, provided that the management and the actor find an agreement to do so.
Johnny Knoxville and former Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn have been feuding since the former first appeared for the company in January. The duo had several segments on SmackDown, and Zayn's kick eliminated Knoxville from the Rumble.
Following the premium live event, the war of words continued in WWE Digital Exclusives, with the Jackass star stating he wasn't done with Zayn and that he was "coming for him."
