Jose Canseco has been coming after former New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez for years, calling him out on various platforms, making wild claims, and attempting to defame his career in some way.
But if we look at this objectively, it’s A-Rod who’s living the life and Canseco who is pretty much the exact figure he’s trying to make Rodriguez out to be. The former Yankees MVP is a broadcaster on ESPN and an analyst on FOX. He’s also engaged to Jennifer Lopez. Canseco is a disgraced former MLB player who talks trash on social media and is twice divorced.
A-Rod has never even engaged with Canseco despite the countless shots hurled his way on social media. But, at the very least, we know Rodriguez is laughing somewhere after watching Canseco get knocked out by a Barstool sports intern at “Rough n Rowdy 13.” Did we mention it happened in under 10 seconds?
Canseco, a former professional athlete who is still in great shape, had 50 pounds on Billy Football, but succumbed after an onslaught of haymakers, and seemingly injured his shoulder in the process. Some post-baseball career! While A-Rod is still raking in the dough as a top celebrity and talking head, Canseco is getting punked on a hillybilly version of a pay-per view.
Though Canseco made $1 million for this bout, according to Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy, is that really worth the eternal embarrassment. Also, he got made fun of by this guy pretty badly:
Oh, we’re not done yet! This fight was hyped for quite a while, with many fans and viewers in Billy Football’s corner. Canseco was feeling the disrespect and decided to call out all of his haters and doubters shortly before he tumbled to the mat.
Oof. We’re not sure that’s now respect works. Even if you beat the intern, it’s hard to believe that gains you any points. Now, after losing emphatically, the disrespect may pile on so heavily that a Twitter account deactivation could be in Canseco’s future.
A-Rod, you there? We need a selfie of you smiling, or something. Please confirm that you saw this.
