James Holzhauer – who made headlines this year for his run on “Jeopardy!” – is returning for a special “Greatest of All Time” tournament … and he’s using “Steiner Math” to hype it up.
For those who are unaware … Holzauer set the single-game winnings record in April when he pulled in more than $131,127. He went on to win $2.46 million during his 32-game streak and added another $250,000 during last week’s “Tournament of Champions.”
Earlier today, it was announced that he’ll face-off against “Jeopardy!” legends Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter in January for the show’s first “Greatest of All Time” tournament (details of which can be FOUND HERE).
Now for the wrestling part of all this.
Holzhauer began talking trash to his upcoming opponents via social media as soon as the announcement went live and he chose Scott Steiner’s infamous promo from 2008 to kick things off.
Here’s what James wrote in full:
You know they say that all men are created equal, but you look at me and you look at [Ken Jennings] and you can see that statement is not true.
See, normally if you go one on one with another [Jeopardy] contestant, you got a 50/50 chance of winning. But I’m a genetic freak and I’m not normal! So you got a 25%, AT BEST, at beat me. Then you add [Brad Rutter] to the mix, your chances of winning drastic go down.
See the 3 way at the GOAT, you got a 33 1/3 chance of winning, but I, I got a 66 and 2/3 chance of winning, because [Brad Rutter] KNOWS he can’t beat me and he’s not even gonna try!
So [Ken Jennings], you take your 33 1/3 chance, minus my 25% chance and you got an 8 1/3 chance of winning the GOAT. But then you take my 75% chance of winning, if we was to go one on one, and then add 66 2/3 per cents, I got 141 2/3 chance of winning the GOAT.
See Ken, the numbers don’t lie, and they spell disaster for you in January.
The Greatest of All-Time “Jeopardy!” tournament begins January 7 on ABC.
