Johnny Knoxville from the “Jackass” movie franchise is going to be part of this year’s WWE Royal Rumble event as he will compete in the Men’s Royal Rumble match.
This appearance is due to a deal being made to promote the “Jackass Forever” movie that comes out in theaters on February 4th.
Knoxville spoke with St. Louis Today to promote the film and during the interview, he said he wouldn’t be coming alone to the Royal Rumble as some of the “Jackass” cast members will be in his corner.
“I’ve got some corner men I’m bringing with me,” Knoxville said. “I’m going to have the greatest corner there that night.”
Knoxville didn’t give any names of the cast that will be there. The “Jackass” crew have made various appearances and seen attending several WWE shows over the years. In October 2006 on Raw, Chris Pontius and Steve-O were part of an angle where they were beaten down by the late great Umaga.
