Logan Paul And Arnold Schwarzenegger Urged To Sign Will Smith To Their Slap Fighting Championships

Fans are urging Arnold Schwarzenegger and Logan Paul to sign Will Smith to the Slap Fighting Championships following his meltdown at The Oscars.

Hollywood megastar Smith sent social media into a frenzy after storming onto the Oscars stage and slapping host Chris Rock across the chops after the comedian made a joke about Smith's wife Jada.

The Fresh Prince of Bel Air star then casually returned to his seat while everyone in attendance watched on in horror.

"Will Smith just smacked the s**t out of me," Rock said while awkwardly trying to play it off and defuse the situation.

But Smith fired right back, shouting: "Keep my wife's name out your f**king mouth."

Chris awkwardly attempted to segue into the next segment, but not before saying: "That was the greatest night in the history of television."

While some skeptics suggested the incident was scripted, others weren't so sure.

But, after seeing Smith show off his slapping ability on-stage at the 94th Academy Awards, fans are now urging the Slap Fighting Championships to hire his services.

The sport is rather simple, with competitors taking turns to slap each other as hard they can across the cheek while standing either side of a small coffee table.

It has gained so much attention in such a short space of time that YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul has decided to join forces with Schwarzenegger to promote it.

"I mean, yeah, guys can go to the gym and train five hours a day, learning 12 different disciplines in mixed martial arts. But the slaps one, everyone knows how to do that," Paul told reporters on a recent Slap Fighting Championship conference call.

"Everyone has been slapping their brothers, sisters, siblings, and cousins since they were three years old. Anyone can do that.

"I think it's an easy way for MMA fighters, influencers, celebrities, anyone who has this online beef to settle it instantly without having to train for three or four months.

"You just go and slap the person you have the beef with or the dispute with and there's an audience because there's something entertaining. Arnold Schwarzenegger said it, you're standing three feet across such a short distance to see who can hit harder and take the most hits. I don't know, it might be crazy, but I just think there's something here."
