The Elon Musk vs Mark Zuckerberg fight is turning into a TV drama show that never ends.

In today’s episode, Elon Musk leaked a private text message he exchanged with Zuckerberg.

In one of these messages, Musk told Zuckerberg he wouldn’t win unless, and this is a direct quote, he was a “modern day Bruce Lee”.

Musk leaked the exchange to his biographer, Walter Isaacson.

The CEO of Tesla and owner of Twitter is clearly heavily banking on his height and weight.

He tried to make a point of that in the exchange with Zuckerberg, and he also said it again in Twitter / X thread.

Musk warned the Meta boss he wouldn’t emerge victorious from the fight.

“I think it is very unlikely, given our size difference, [but] perhaps you’re a modern day Bruce Lee and will somehow win,” Musk said.

Then he said pretty much the same thing in a different thread.

A Twitter / X user told Musk to “never forget that jiujitsu isn’t real… just stand up you got this”.

Musk replied that if “the size difference is big enough, this is absolutely true”.

For the record, Elon Musk stands 6’1” tall and weighs 300 pounds, he said as much in a Tweet.

Meanwhile, Marc Zuckerberg is 5’7” and weighs 155 pounds.

While Musk appears to be psyched about the fight, Zuckerberg called his bluff.

“I don’t want to keep hyping something that will never happen,” Zuckerberg told Musk.

“So you should either decide you’re going to do this and do it soon, or we should move on.”

Musk and Zuckerberg have been talking about this fight for months at this point, but it’s unclear whether it’ll actually happen.

One thing’s for sure, the saga’s not over yet.
