The cage fight may or may not happen, but free browser game Zuck v Musk lets you recreate the rumble for yourself.


You may have heard that last week, Tesla owner Elon Musk recently challenged Meta head Mark Zuckerberg to a cage fight. Zuckerberg apparently accepted, and the internet was suddenly awash with speculation over who might win. Meanwhile, the rest of the world stared into the middle distance and wondered what past decisions had caused us to end up in this absurd reality.

No one really expects the fight to happen – not least because Musk’s mother seems to have put a stop to it – but now, thanks to the power of video games, you see for yourself which of the ridiculous tech bros would win in a no-holds barred wrestling match.

As reported by PC Gamer, Zuck v Musk is a reskinned version of WrestleBros from Blue Wizard, the game-developer collective formed by Jason Kapalka. Kapalka was the founder of PopCap, the studio behind the smash hits Bejeweled, Peggle and Plants vs Zombies.
