Eric Boiling Issues Public Challenge to Fox Host Jesse Watters

Eric Bolling, the anchor of Newsmax, issued a challenge to Jesse Watters on Tuesday to engage in arm wrestling at any location, at any time. He then suggested that the Fox News host was too “afraid” to confront him.

Bolling’s Newsmax program, The Balance, usually attracts significantly fewer viewers during the same 8 p.m. time slot.

“Hey Jesse Watters, I will arm wrestle you anywhere, any place, any time. I don’t care what your rules are. I will arm wrestle you, Jesse. So there it is. Jesse Watters, you wanna arm wrestle me?” Bolling declared.

Bolling initially challenged his former Fox News colleague to a showdown on Friday in the same time slot as Watters’ Fox News program, Jesse Watters Primetime.

Bolling once again challenged Watters on Tuesday, accusing his cable news adversary of being too “afraid” to take him up on the offer after failing to receive a response from the Fox News host.

“Last week, I challenged Jesse Watters to an arm wrestle contest live on-air,” Bolling crowed.

“Well, guess what folks? I didn’t hear a word from Jesse. Jesse, I didn’t hear. You didn’t take me up on the challenge. Does that mean you’re afraid? I’ll arm wrestle you with my left arm. Anywhere, any place, any time. I’ll take my left arm, you can have your right arm, assuming you’re right-handed. Or we’ll do the other arm.” he continued.

So far, Watters still has not responded to Bolling’s challenge.
