At the Oscars this year, something unforeseen happened. Chris Rock is a big name in comedy and his work in stand-up comedy always comes of use. Moreover, when he got to the stage at the Oscars, he started ribbing some of the people present there. However, one of his comments on Will Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith did not sit well with the Hollywood megastar.

In a shocking moment, Will Smith got up onto the stage and slapped Chris Rock across the face. The audience at the Academy Awards stood in shock as Smith shouted at Chris Rock. He asked Rock to not take his wife’s name. The way this happened reminded a lot of people about promos in WWE, which led to people asking Vince to book Chris vs Will at WrestleMania.

What shot did Chris Jericho take at Vince McMahon?

A lot of the wrestling world reacted to this stunt pulled by Will Smith at The Oscars. One of them was AEW’s top star, Chris Jericho. Jericho used the picture of Will Smith slapping Chris Rock that had gone viral and turned into a hilarious meme. However, one person who might not be laughing at it is Vince McMahon.

The background of the joke here is that Vince McMahon, for years, has pushed for WWE to not be termed as pro wrestling. Vince has made his thoughts about the term “pro-wrestlers” very clear several times. He seems to think that a better term for the wrestling industry is “sports entertainment”. So much so that several of his employed have landed in trouble if they used the term “pro-wrestling”.
