The most recent episode of Saturday Night Live entertained fans, as Keke Palmer‘s acting skills were put to the test and SZA rocked with the crowd during her musical performances. But the stage wasn’t the only place to be that night.

According to Questlove, the fun extended into the backstage area of the show, where SZA and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson reportedly had an arm wrestling match.

“Sza was the musical guest and she bet Dwayne Johnson, who was hanging out backstage with a reporter from ny times, that she could beat him in an arm wrestling contest,” Quest wrote of the “cool celebrity moment.” “We were laughing cause we thought it was a joke, but she was dead serious.”

“She said if she won the New York Times reporter had to stop doing their story about dwayne, and make it about her new album instead. And I kid you not, dwayne the rock johnson ACTUALLY accepted the challenge!!” he continued.

Unfortunately, SZA lost the battle and the NYT went on to cover Dwayne.

SZA’s SNL appearance was part of the promotion of her new project, SOS, which she announced will drop on December 9. The 23-song track list, shared on Monday, boasts features from Don ToliverPhoebe BridgersTravis Scott and the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard.
