"I want to do something else, something big. That's right. I wanna make a run for the rumble. I am talking about the WWE's Royal Rumble," Knoxville said.
Aside from announcing his plans of entering the WWE Royal Rumble, Johnny Knoxville also said that among the 30 wrestlers who will participate in the competition, he would be the last man standing, touting that he was not impressed with the "current list" of fighters in the competition.
"You know I've seen the current list of WWE wrestlers and frankly, I'm not impressed. They don't have anyone big enough to throw me over the top rope. What is Little E and Roman Ruins going to do it," Knoxville said.
The "Jackass Forever" actor also called out to Vince McMahon, urging the WWE CEO to audition "bigger" and "tougher" talent for this year's Royal Rumble, warning that he does not want to hurt anyone.
Knoxville then concluded his video by sharing what his shirt says.
"Just like the shirt says, Johnny Knoxville, World Champ, woohoo," the actor noted.
In the video's caption, Knoxville said his training started on the same day he posted the promotional video, Wrestling Inc. reported.
Knoxville also said he would "channel" his wrestling heroes such as The Rock, Abdullah, Gorilla Monsoon, and the Butcher to give himself a better chance of victory.
"The way I'm looking at it, I am giving myself a %100 chance of winning," Knoxville noted.
Johnny Knoxville is not the first celebrity to enter the WWE competition. It can be recalled that Stephen Amell and Mr. T had notable matches. Other athletes such as Shaquille O'Neal, Snooki, and Floyd Mayweather also entered the wrestling league.
