    Disagree with Foley here because I don’t know if Will Smith would have slapped him or not. The Rock is a big guy who spent most of his life fake fighting, but that doesn’t mean he can actually take a hit, or that Will Smith wouldn’t have reacted the same way.

    I will bet every dime I have @Joseph that Will Smith wouldn’t have tried to strike the 6″5′ 260-280lbs monster of a man that is The Rock. He doesn’t have to be decent in fighting at all or able to take a hit, the risk comes in him snatching up skinny Will Smith up and manhandling him. Plus, now that we know Will Smith is a grown man that smacks people like he’s waiting for his nails to dry….he goes into each confrontation down several points.

    @Rob Dam Van! Shirt Typo! – Will Smith is 6’2″ and it looks like he weighs a little over 200lbs. He also trained as a boxer for his role as Muhammad Ali. So I wouldn’t call him skinny and I wouldn’t say that the Rock could manhandle him. As for the slap. I’d say that training in boxing, that Will Smith would know that you can easily break your hand punching someone.

    Yet The Rock lost to Chris Rock on the fictional Celebrity Deathmatch show which would be interested in Chris Rock vs Will Smith if said show was still around.

    No way in HELL that Will Smith would have had the same “I’m gonna bitch-slap that guy for that joke” attitude if it was the Rock lol. If it WOULD have been the Rock, he would have never made a joke like that cause it’s not his style…. and if he did make the same joke Smith would have kept that ass in his seat and just nervously laughed… like he did initially until his wife rolled her eyes.

    I’ve seen smaller men take it to bigger men to save face in their woman’s eyes. So maybe he would have just sat there. Maybe he would have reacted the same way. I don’t know.
