Ted Cruz Bets $10K On Congressman Beating Up Actor Ron Perlman – The Anti-Trump Actor Offered To Wrestle With Cruz Himself For BLM

Actor Ron Perlman traded barbs with Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida over social media Sunday.

The spat began when Perlman condemned Gaetz for tweeting last week that he’d prefer not having a United States national soccer team over having one “that won’t stand for the National Anthem.”

While actor Ron Perlman was already trending on Twitter after sparring with congressmen Matt Gaetz and Jim Jordan on Sunday night, Senator Ted Cruz threw his name into the fight. After Perlman tweeted a photo of Jordan with the caption, “You’re lucky for this guy, Matt. If it weren’t for him you’d be the ugliest politician walking,” Cruz stood up for his fellow Republican representatives.

Cruz, 49, who’s represented Texas in the U.S. Senate since 2013, tweeted that Jordan, 56, could easily beat Perlman, 71, in a wrestling match.

Referring to the actor’s eponymous role in Guillermo del Toro’s 2004 superhero film, Cruz said to Perlman, “Listen Hellboy. You talk good game when you’ve got Hollywood makeup & stuntmen. But I’ll bet $10k —to the nonpolitical charity of your choice—that you couldn’t last 5 min in the wrestling ring w/ @Jim_Jordan w/o getting pinned. You up for it? Or does your publicist say too risky?”

Perlman couldn’t resist challenging Cruz in his response, betting the politician he would donate $50,000 to Black Lives Matter if he wins—he also took aim at Ohio congressman Jordon’s involvement in the Ohio State University wrestling abuse scandal.

“I tell you what teddy boy, since mentioning jim jordan and wrestling is… problematic, why don’t we say f*** him and just make it you & me. I’ll give 50k to Black Lives Matter and you can keep all the tax payer money you were thinking of spending.”

Perlman also tweeted: “Wait, is this THEE Ted Cruz? Holy s*** man! Is this the same guy let little Donnie call his wife A dog and his father an assassin and now kisses his ass? Yo, can I get your autograph man?”

Who do you think will win this match?
