Mountain Game Of Thrones

Check out this photo from last night’s NXT Takeover: Unstoppable. It’s the most intimidating and powerful body on television and the guy who plays The Mountain on Game of Thrones just hanging out.

Steph: “Which match are you most excited to watch?” 

The Mountain: “Elia Martell! I killed her children. Then I raped her. Then I smashed her head in. Like this!”

The WWE is probably going to want to work on his catchphrase but but is Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson training for a possible spot on the WWE roster? It wouldn’t the craziest idea in the world considering his background. Bjornsson is 6’9″ and weighs around 400 pounds. He’s also crazy strong.

In 2010 he came 3rd in Iceland’s Strongest Man, and has won every year since then. He has also won Europe’s Strongest Man in 2014 and has appeared in 4 World’s Strongest Man finals through 2011-2014, finishing in 6th, 3rd, 3rd, and 2nd respectively. Only narrowly missing the title in 2014 to Lithuanian 4x World’s Strongest Man winner, and friend of Hafþór’s, Žydrūnas Savickas Savickas was the previous reigning champion as Europe’s Strongest Man since 2010, but did not compete in 2014 (Savickas won in 2010, 2012, and 2013, but the Europe’s Strongest Man competition was on hiatus in 2011 and no champion was named that year).

Besides his catchphrase, WWE might want to work on Björnsson’s finisher. He’s not going to be allowed to crush skulls in a WWE ring. He’ll need to be trained and…


Oh. Well, that might work.
