Ric Flair Hosted A Slapping Competition On The Undercard Of Jake Paul Vs Ben Askren

WWE legend Ric Flair as the host, American comedian Pete Davidson in the commentary box and two massive blokes slapping the c**p out of each other.

It doesn't get much stranger than that, does it?

Well, these are the exact scenes that occurred on the undercard of Jake Paul's highly-anticipated bout against Ben Askren last weekend.

And it seems boxing fans who only tuned in to watch the main event are only just realising the carnage that unfolded earlier in the night.


Triller, who were the promoters for the event, offered up a stacked card of fights as well as performances from some of the biggest artists on the planet.

But perhaps Triller's strangest segment of their pay-per-view show came on the undercard where they played host to a professional slapping competition.

Only this wasn't any normal slapping competition (that's if slapping competitions can be deemed "normal" in the first place).


No, this one was slightly different because none other than WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair was hosting it all.

Before the event started, the "Nature Boy" could be seen strutting into the caged arena screaming his iconic "Wooooooo" catchphrase while high-fiving the live crowd.

On top of that, comedian and actor Pete Davidson was sitting cage-side to supply viewers with a running commentary.

I mean, even before the two dudes started slapping each other this event had all the ingredients for box office entertainment.


And it certainly didn't disappoint.

After the two contestants traded blows for three rounds, one of them ended up getting knocked out cold with the final slap of the match.

The emphatic victory was met with a roaring "Wooooooo" from Flair, of course.


Looking back, it made for very bizarre (but kind of fascinating) television.
