Knoxville vs. Zayn confirmed for WrestleMania Sunday

Mar 5, 2022 - by Marc Middleton

Jackass star Johnny Knoxville is going to WrestleMania 38.

WWE has officially announced Knoxville vs. Sami Zayn for Night Two of WrestleMania 38, or WrestleMania Sunday.

As noted, tonight’s WWE SmackDown saw Ricochet defeat Zayn to capture the WWE Intercontinental Title, thanks to a distraction by Knoxville. Zayn was later filmed ranting backstage, where he challenged Knoxville to a match on The Grandest Stage of Them All. Knoxville later spoke with Kayla Braxton and accepted the challenge, saying he’s put his body through more than Zayn has and he’s not scared to get in the ring with a low-down cheat like Zayn.

WrestleMania 38 will take place on Saturday, April 2 and Sunday, April 3 from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Below is the current announced card, along with SmackDown footage of Knoxville and Zayn:
