There were plenty of questions about how Johnny Knoxville’s WrestleMania 38 match with Sami Zayn would play out. As expected, the “Jackass” superstar’s singles match debut was full of wild moments and car crash stunts.

The full Jackass crew showed up for the match, including Chris Pontius pulling off the Party Boy gimmick and Wee Man brawling with Zayn before hitting the WWE superstar with a bodyslam. As pure spectacle, the match was a complete success after a months-long build that saw Zayn crash the “Jackass Forever” premiere and Knoxville releasing Zayn’s phone number.

The match also included a mousetrap-covered table introduced early on. It would be Zayn who would go through the table, being launched from the top rope by Knoxville.

The mousetrap theme would also play into the finish when the full Jackass crew pulled a giant mousetrap from under the ring and placed it in the ring. Zayn would be placed in the trap and, after a moment of trouble springing the trap, the contraption was used to capture Zayn and set him up for the pin.

Knoxville is now undefeated at WrestleMania, having knocked off a multi-time champion in a bout that was pure entertainment.
