Jackasses Nix WWE Matches

7/25/2007 5:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Even the jackasses in "Jackass" are staying away from the WWE. A planned match-up between "Jackass" and WWE wrestlers at the WWE's pay-per-view "Summerslam" event has been knocked out.


Following the recent murder-suicide of WWE wrestler Chris Benoit and his family, it seems the "Jackass" crew didn't want to risk getting in the ring with the WWE, or was it just the taint? Bam Margera was first to bow out with an injury. Then "Jackass" ringmaster and alleged-Jessica Simpson dater Johnny Knoxville backed out, too.

Maybe they're not as dumb as they seem!

Attempts to reach the "Jackasses" for comment were unsuccessful.

Johnny, Bam, Steve-O and the Jackass crew are modern gods. Stay the heck away from those wrestling morons. That's a different game, man. They're too jacked-up to trust, even if they're trying not to hurt you. Let's see a real comedic/dramatic movie from the crew that makes good on the brilliance! - KLONDIKE

Everyone seems to forget that some of Jackass did a match with Umaga last year in Los Angeles on an episode of RAW. They lost.

Again TMZ has the facts wrong as usual when it comes to any wrestling related news. First they reported numerous false reports on the Benoit deaths and are now spewing more crap here. The WWE were the onse to scrap plans with the jackass stars and not the other way around. Next time before you guys print a story you may want to actually check some sources, this is old news as it has been reported for a long time now that the wwe wasn't happy with Steve-o's antics backstage a few months ago, that along with lack of fan interest was the reason behind this. Get your facts straight for once tmz or just keep to chasing celebs and bothering them.

Bam, Knoxville, and the rest of that brainless bunch, what fine examples, just the kind of people my kids should look up to. After all, all my kids have are a nurse, and a teacher to learn from. God forbid.

Them backing out of Summerslam had nothing to do with the Benoit tragedy. Usually this site is spot on regarding details in stories, but this one not so much. Anything to jump on the steroid/roid rage train again though, eh...

When is Bam going to have that horrid, cancerous looking mole removed from his face? That is so disgusting.
