    Posted: 08/October/2008 at 13:12
Ive just read that Johnny Knoxville will be on Raw next week in some sort of angle with Great Khali, after he walked out of an interview or something. Seriously, how many times does this storyline have to fail before creative scrap it? Its what, the 3rd time now? I dont think they remember Umaga destroying Steve-O and Chris Pontius, only for Steve-O to burst out laughing when he was supposed to be KO'd. WWE dont seem to realise that these punks are out for themselves, and them breaking kayfabe would be good footage for their own show. They could no-sell moves or kick out of pins unscheduled, so it is risky of WWE. I also dont see what WWE are getting out of this. The Jackass crew will likely be the faces in their feud, so will go over the heels. Even for comedy heels like Khali, that is harmful for credibility. I dont see this getting any more mainstream attention than Z lister K-Fed did for WWE, and im baffled by why they keep persisting with this angle.

I agree with you on this.  I've had the same thoughts you listed about this. 

This is a go no where, accomplish nothing type setting and will take a place on a PPV card that two accomplished wrestlers could be taking.

I've read on several sites that Khali is having major problems with his knees and he may be on his last leg, no pun intended there.  They probably would let him go but they have built such a fanbase in his home country of India that they keep him for that reason.

Yeah just like the commerial for the returning Boogyman all I could say was 'damn not again!'
 
I liked Jackass (liked) but its old news Knoxville is old news. The shows been gone for years, he tried moves and failed and now he is running a cheap ass website called jackass.com or something. So why would wwe want to promote a failed star that what bring in ratings agaist a superstar who most dont like and needs a good wrestler to get him though a match???
 
This cant lead to a Knoxville vs Khali match can it?
 
The only good thing about this was when Khali manager said "the great Khali say's he'll call you" That was funny

I think it all depends on who they bring into the angle. If it's just Knoxville I don't think  we'd have to worry about any no selling or breaking kayfabe. I think even Bam just might be professional enough to get the job done. Everyone else needs to be left out. Period.

No doubt, they would do stunts and take weapon shots, but they do crazy shit that belongs in CZW, glassing each other and jumping off houses, stuff like that. It wouldnt go down with the new PG kid friendly objectives. Steve-O is my concern. He was supposed to be rolling around in agony like Party Boy was when they got destroyed by Umaga, but he was laughing! I know 'wrestling is fake' and all, but a 120 pound man no-selling a hiding from a 400 pound monster heel is breaking kayfabe and is disrespectful to the business. I like Jackass and the WWE, but the two shouldnt be mixed IMO. I just hope its Knoxville like SKITCOMIC said, because as an actor, he will probably be schooled on selling moves and he seems the most professional of the group.

it shouldn´t be anybody... what in hells bells has the jackass crew to do with WWE? They´re just a bunch of friggin ejiots who willingly force their body into dangerous situations! I mean, wwe superstars do that too, but in a controlled environment and wwe wrestlers actually know what they´re doing!

no one in WWE has shoved a car up there ass, or given themself paper cuts on their mouths. Raab? Steve-O? The Jackass Crew, are just some guys, that basically do the same crazy stuff most every teenager does, just on TV. They have done nothing to desreve WWE TV Time. Give it to someone, who they are trying to build up. Give Swagger a fued on RAW, for 2 months, then let him go back to ECW announcing he is better than anyone on ECW, because he rocked RAW, by producing their highest rated segments in 3-4 years. [most likely he would be lieing, but whatever haha].

hmmm , neither has kahli , maybe thats why there in the segment together... what has vicky gerrero done other than she used to fuck a dead superstar , mike admle , how bout the whole diva section , what a worthless waste of televison time, the wwe is already a big pile of shit , whats wrong with brining asome humor to it , and besides this was something they where going to do a long time ago but another dead superstar and hid murderous rage stopped that from happening when mtv pulled the plug on then idea , jackass doesnt need the wwe , they have their nitch following , im sure it was the wwe who approached them and not the other way around , cant blame knoxville for wanting to make money...
