'The Mountain' Issues Emotional Response To Longtime Rival Eddie Hall's 'Exposed' Video
'The Mountain' has issued a passionate response to Eddie Hall's 'Exposed' video and has claimed he will never compete at World's Strongest Man again.
Hall recently took to YouTube and released a video titled 'EXPOSED! Cheating scandal at Worlds Strongest Man' to prove he didn't cheat to take the crown at World's Strongest Man 2017.
The video has amassed over three million views and 'The Mountain', real name Hafthor Bjornsson, has finally issued a response.
Speaking on a Twitch livestream, the Icelandic beast said: "I'm absolutely done.
"I would never in my life compete for Giants Live again, never.
"And I probably would never compete at World's Strongest Man again ever and I'm probably retired.
"That was just the last straw for me, that BS video, and that Giants Live posted as well was just the last straw.
"Those motherf*****s went too far and I'm done with this.
"I'm not competing for those guys ever again.
"I might do Arnold [Strongman Classic], but Giants Live, never."
In the original video, Hall discusses the controversy at length and has harsh words for 'Thor'.

"When I achieved my dream of winning World's Strongest Man three years ago, I couldn't get wait to get back to Britain to thank everyone and share the title.
"Before I even got home to my friends and family to tell them the news, one man took bad sportsmanship to a whole new level and it was plastered all over the world's media.
"This is a quote from Hafthor Bjornsson: 'I was robbed.'
"For the last three years, instead of answering questions about how I defeated some of the greatest strongmen to ever live, Hafthor included, instead I had people questioning whether I really won it or not.
"Hafthor Bjornsson and his entourage have been smearing my title and the referee Colin Bryce's reputation for the last three years.
"Because he was the Mountain from Game of Thrones, a huge TV star, people listened and people believed him.
"I've had enough of the doubters saying he was robbed and how hard done by he was."
The duo are now set to go head to head in a boxing match that's been years in the making.
It's set to take place in September 2021 and Hall himself has already begun leaning out for the contest.
