Elon Musk has been the head of Twitter for nearly eight months. As nearly the entire internet knows, it has not been the smoothest transition. However, Musk now faces competition from rival platforms. Bluesky, a platform involving former Twitter head Jack Dorsey, is gradually rolling out invitations. Additionally, Mark Zuckerberg is working on a competing service called Threads. Elon Musk responded to a post about Threads that criticized Zuckerberg’s past actions. In the response, he tweeted to express his willingness to engage in a fight with Zuckerberg. Surprisingly, Zuckerberg seemed to accept the challenge.
“I’m sure Earth can’t wait to be exclusively under Zuck’s thumb with no other options,” tweeted Musk. He also lashed out at Zuckerberg’s claim of creating a “sane” version of Twitter. Another Twitter user reminded Musk that Zuckerberg is skilled in Jiu-jitsu. However, Musk seemed undeterred. Instead, he responded that he would be up for a cage match if Zuckerberg was interested. Whether or not it was a joke remains to be seen. Still, it’s likely he wasn’t expecting the response he got.
Could We See An Actual Cage Match Between Musk and Zuckerberg?
These days, Elon Musk is perhaps best known for his trolling on Twitter. However, it seems that Mark Zuckerberg is more than open to the idea of a physical fight. Zuckerberg’s response on his Instagram stories indicated that he was serious about the challenge. On the Instagram Story, he simply posted a screenshot of Musk’s tweet with the words “Send Me Address.” Of course, the press immediately wanted to verify whether or not the Meta founder was serious. Surprisingly, a spokesperson from Meta confirmed that the story speaks for itself without providing any further explanation.
Elon Musk’s physical stature is larger than the thin-framed Zuckerberg. However, Zuckerberg’s proficiency in Jiu-jitsu should not be underestimated. If the two were to actually participate in a match, there is no doubt that Zuckerberg would win. The ball is now in Musk’s court. However, he may follow a pattern similar to what happened with his involvement in Twitter. He will initially express interest and then attempt to back out for months. In the end, he will eventually participate and face unfavorable outcomes. What do you think of Musk’s challenge? Who would win in a cage match? Let us know in the comments!
