Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo has been putting Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson on notice recently, but he may want to be careful with what he asks for, as the former WWE Superstar is ready for all challengers:
Dwayne Johnson @TheRock
“I’d kill him” 😂👊🏾 Love this dude. It’s why he’s an @NBA beast & the Bucks are #1 in the E. But you don’t want this smoke, cuz I will slap your lips off into next week, son. And by that I mean, let’s just get a workout in and enjoy some tequila after 😂🙏🏾👊🏾. https://t.co/gZcElqPYLd
All of it was done in good fun, of course.
That led to some high praise from the wrestler:
That would not be the end of their back-and-forth, though. The 6'11", 242-pound Antetokounmpo later (jokingly) said he would "kill" The Rock in a wrestling match:
Nothing like some friendly banter between two elite professionals.
A wrestling match probably won't occur, but it sounds like the two want to make a joint workout happen. In other words, stay tuned.
