The internet memes continue amid the aftermath of Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars. TikToker Freya Fox has gone viral after re-enacting the iconic slap moment in WWE’s newest game WWE 2K22.

WWE 2K22 is the long-awaited release in WWE’s arsenal of video games. The game, which took two years to release due to Covid-19, skipped its 2021 version prompting fans to expect a stellar release for the latest drop. 

Its famed mode, Create a Superstar, formerly known as “Create a Wrestler” or CAW as most fans call it, has over delivered this year with hyper-realistic renderings of face and body customizations.

The match was a near-perfect recreation of the viral moment when Smith slapped Rock for making a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith.

The TikToker customized Smith’s actions to include tons of slapping and strikes to try and recreate what actually transpired.

The match ultimately ends with Chris Rock being slammed through a table by Smith, in which Fox exclaims  “This is what I should’ve done to you last night.”

WWE Superstar Sami Zayn took to Twitter and told Chris Rock to call him, potentially alluding to a future appearance in WWE.
