It is never a smart idea to challenge a former running back for the National Football League to a foot race, and this is especially true if you are a comedian who is 44 years old. Kevin Hart is currently confined to a wheelchair as a result of the painful education he received over this topic.

On Instagram, Hart shared a video in which he provided an explanation of his injury. After he and Ridley got into a debate about who would come out on top in a competition, they decided to put their disagreement to the test by running the forty-yard sprint. It did not turn out well for the famous comic from all over the world, as you could have anticipated.

Hart stated that he had torn many muscles in his abdominal region, and he described the agonising details of his injuries. In addition to that, he stated that the event served as a jarring reminder to him of the fact that he is no longer a youngster.

“We get out there, and we go run the 40-yard dash,” said Hart. “Get ready!” “The dash over 40 yards. Guys, I just spent all of my money. I had a tear in both my lower abdomen and my abductors. I have no idea what that even is, but I managed to tear them. I tore those up as well. I am unable to walk. Put your rear end in here. The number is 44.

The video generated quite a deal of attention from members of the celebrity community, including comments from stars such as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Will Smith. Hart was able to use this to his advantage.

Even if Hart hadn’t gotten hurt, it’s hard to picture the race going particularly well for him even if he had been in it. Following his stellar career at LSU, Ridley went on to have a successful playing career in the National Football League (NFL), spending four of those seasons with the New England Patriots. Ridley amassed 1,263 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns in the 2012 season.

That is not exactly the kind of person you want to challenge to a race, and it’s likely that Hart won’t make the same mistake twice.
