• WWF Veteran Thinks Will Smith Slapping Chris Rock At The Oscars Was Scripted

Tonight at the Oscars, Chris Rock made a joke about Will Smith’s wife. Will then came on the stage and slapped him.

Will went back to his seat and yelled: “Keep my wife’s name out of your f**king mouth.”

You can watch it below:

Will won the Best Actor Award afterwards and said the following during his speech:

“I want to apologize to the Academy. I want to apologize to all my fellow nominees. This is a beautiful moment and I’m not crying for winning an award. It’s not about winning an award for me. It’s about being able to shine a light on all of the people.

Art imitates life. I look like the crazy father, just like they said about Richard Williams. Love will make you do crazy things.

I’m being called on in my life to love people and to protect people and to be a river to my people. I know to do what we do, you got to be able to take abuse. You got to be able to have people talk crazy about you.

In this business you got to be able to have people disrespecting you. And you got to smile and you got to pretend like that’s okay.”

WWF Veteran Dutch Mantell (aka Uncle Zebekiah / Zeb Colter) tweeted the following about this incident:

“OK that seals it. Just in time too. @VinceMcMahon and @peacockTV just booked @chrisrock vs @willsmith at WrestleMania 38. The biggest WM of all time.”

A fan then replied:

“Personally, I think it was a shoot, but I’d like to get your opinion on it, if you don’t mind.”

Dutch replied:

“My opinion. Great timing…surprised the people. Real??? Brother, they’re actors. Or claim to be. Chris didn’t sound like a man who just got slapped. You need execution then follow through. But great for Network TV like Lawler/Kaufman.”
