Steve-O brought a bit of Jackass to All Elite Wrestling last night with a brutal stunt.
Darby Allin – whose already crossed paths with the likes of skateboarding legend Tony Hawk this year – zipped himself into a body bag and took a painful tumble down a half pipe on Dynamite.
‘Hey everybody, I’m Steve-O,’ he said at the start of the black and white clip on Wednesday’s show. ‘And we all know that Darby Allin’s gonna be competing for the TNT Championship on November 7.
‘Clearly, there’s something really wrong with him, because before that match, he’s gonna do… this.’
The camera panned down to reveal a body bag with ‘Face of TNT’ scrawled on it, before Allin climbed in on top of the half pipe.
‘All kidding aside, this has bad news written all over it,’ Steve-O warned.
Kicking off the stunt itself in true Jackass style, the wrestler added: ‘I’m Darby Allin and this is the body bag roll in.’
Steve-O has history with the business, including his 2006 appearance on Raw alongside Chris Pontius when the pair got destroyed by the late Umaga.
The Jackass star made a pretty big mistake though, as he kept laughing and wouldn’t stay down to make the beating look real.
The WWE superstar responded out of frustration by actually knocking him out, and even Steve-O was rocked by the whole experience.
He previously said: ‘This was supposed to be the final move of the match, him jumping off the top rope… Oh my god! It was so bad!
‘So now the match is supposed to be over, but I don’t know that I have to play dead, so I keep moving around and like he’s not done beating me up… now he’s gonna hit me with the f***ing elbow that actually knocked me into a blackout.
‘Now I’m like begging him, I’m like, “Please, stop doing this to me!” but that means that he has to keep doing it because I’m moving around. I don’t remember leaving the ring, and then they just cut to a commercial.’
