The much-anticipated cage fight between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg is set to be streamed live on the current X platform, formerly recognized as the Twitter social media platform. However, the lingering question is whether this event will actually come to fruition. Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has presented an excuse that adds an element of uncertainty to the situation.
The saga began when Elon Musk, the former owner of Twitter and current head of X, responded to news of Meta’s upcoming release of a Twitter competitor named Threads. The announcement of this “Twitter Killer” app seemed to irk Musk, who had acquired and rebranded the platform for $44 billion the previous year. He took to his platform to express his annoyance, claiming that the world was becoming solely under the control of Buck (possibly referring to Mark Zuckerberg) with no other alternatives. In response to a user’s warning about Zuckerberg’s potential fight, Musk boldly challenged him to a “cage match.”
In an unexpected turn of events, Musk and Zuckerberg later agreed to this “cage match” showdown, despite the fact that Zuckerberg possesses mixed martial arts training, putting Musk at a disadvantage. While Musk boasted about his jiu-jitsu tournament participation and weightlifting as preparation, doubts were raised about the effectiveness of his training regimen.
Musk revealed plans to live stream the fight on X, with all proceeds benefiting charity for military veterans. However, given Musk’s tendency to create hype around events that may not meet expectations, doubts lingered about whether the fight would truly occur as advertised. Musk had previously blamed technical issues and high user demand for problems during a Twitter Spaces event in May.
Zuckerberg responded to Musk’s announcement via Threads, questioning the choice of platform for fundraising and suggesting a more reliable option. He indicated his readiness to fight on the same day but proposed a date in late August. Musk, not one to back down, suddenly cited severe neck and upper back problems as an excuse, hinting at a potential need for surgery. This excuse seemed to echo his previous claim of “mega back pain” after a sumo wrestling match.
As the end of the month approached, the question remained whether the cage fight was a genuine endeavor or merely a billionaire’s attention-grabbing stunt. Musk’s latest post seemed to suggest uncertainty about the fight’s feasibility. The outcome of this saga would only be revealed by the end of the month when the scheduled date would either confirm or disprove the legitimacy of the proposed showdown.
