• 1st Participant For Royal Rumble 2022 Confirmed
WWE’s promotion of Jackass Forever will continue at this month’s Royal Rumble 2022 pay-per-view, as Johnny Knoxville will enter the Men’s Royal Rumble match.
He posted a video about it and wrote the following in the caption:
“I have a big announcement that I have been dying to get off of my chest. I spent a lot of times over the holiday thinking about how I wanted to start off my 2022, and I decided I want to do it kicking a$$ and taking names.
And the best way to do that I feel is making a run for the Rumble, that’s right WWE’s Royal Rumble.
Training starts today, not that I will need a lot of it because I have seen the WWE’s current roster and it’s laughable to think anyone can throw me over the top rope. LAUGHABLE!
I will be channeling my wrestling heroes like The Rock, Abdullah the Butcher and the great Gorilla Monsoon.
The way I’m looking at it I am giving myself a %100 chance of winning. What chance do you think I have? Sincerely, Johnny Knoxville, World Champ

WWE aired his video during the Day 1 PPV as well to confirm his entry in the Men’s Royal Rumble match.
The cast of Jackass Forever also appeared on an episode of SmackDown last month, during a backstage segment with RAW Tag Team Champions RK-BRO (Randy Orton & Riddle).
Is Johnny going to pull this off and actually stay in the Rumble match longer than Drew Carey (another celebrity who entered the Royal Rumble match) in 2001? Will Knoxville manage to hang in there and maybe even throw someone out?
We will all find out on January 29, 2022 when the annual Royal Rumble pay-per-view takes place.
