Following tonight’s WWE Day 1 pay-per-view, WWE will be gearing up for one of the biggest pay-per-views of the year, Royal Rumble, which is set to take place at the end of the month. It turns out Johnny Knoxville, star of the Jackass series and other films like The Ringer and The Dukes of Hazzard remake, is eyeing for a spot in Royal Rumble. It has been speculated that Roman Reigns could face a big name at Royal Rumble.
Johnny Knoxville to participate in the Royal Rumble match?
The winner of 30-man Royal Rumble match earns the opportunity to challenge for the WWE Championship or WWE Universal Championship to headline WrestleMania pay-per-view. The actor took to social media to proclaim his spot in this year’s 30-man Royal Rumble:
“Alright, it’s New Year’s Day and I’ve been thinking about all the things I want to do in 2022,” Knoxville says. “And of course, Jackass Forever comes out February 4th and I’m happy about that, but I want to do something else. Something big! That’s right, I want to make a run for the Rumble. I am talking about WWE’s Royal Rumble. 30 men enter, one guy is left standing — that’s me.
“You know, I’ve seen the current list of WWE wrestlers, and frankly, I’m not impressed,” Johnny Knoxville continues. “They don’t have anyone big enough to throw me over the top rope! What, is ‘Little’ E or Roman ‘Ruins’ going to do it? Hah! And Vince McMahon, you’ve always been kind to us and I sincerely appreciate it, but I sincerely hope you are auditioning bigger, tougher talent for the 2022 Royal Rumble because I don’t want to hurt anyone! So, just like the shirt says, Johnny Knoxville — World Champ. Woohoo!”
