Elon Musk Match With Sumo Wrestler Was ‘A Few Minutes Of Glory’

Elon Musk is still talking about that sumo fight he once had, and it sure sounds like battling a trained wrestler did land Musk in a world of hurt.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO was reminiscing about the bout on X, formerly Twitter, on Sunday after a user shared a photo of Musk’s match.

“Had a few minutes of glory and 8 years of neck pain,” Musk wrote.

This isn’t the first time Musk has brought up his experience dueling a sumo wrestler. In March 2022, the mercurial billionaire challenged Russian leader Vladimir Putin to “single combat” for Ukraine.

When then-Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao expressed doubt at Musk’s fighting prowess, Musk proceeded to share a picture of his sumo match. He did not specify when or where the fight took place.

Representatives for Musk didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment from BI sent outside regular business hours.
