Johnny Knoxville got more than he bargained for when he showed up on tonight’s SmackDown episode.
The “Jackass Forever” star crashed WWE Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn‘s celebration on Friday; “The Master Strategist” won the gold by beating Shinsuke Nakamura last week. Zayn and Knoxville have been feuding for several weeks, and the champion ended the actor’s dreams of winning the Royal Rumble match in January. Zayn subsequently crashed the red carpet premiere of “Jackass Forever.”
To even the score, Knoxville ruined Zayn’s one-man party and challenged him to a match. He dared Zayn to be a fighting champion and questioned whether he had “the balls” to face him.
At first, Zayn responded by walking away before he attacked Knoxville from behind. “The Master Strategist” then blasted Knoxville with two Helluva Kicks before referees pulled him away.
It hasn’t been announced officially as of this writing but it looks like this is the setup for their WrestleMania match.
