Eddie Hall Shares Rare Footage 'Exposing' Rival 'The Mountain' Over World's Strongest Man Cheating Allegations

Eddie Hall Shares Rare Footage 'Exposing' Rival 'The Mountain' Over World's Strongest Man Cheating Allegations

Eddie Hall has 'exposed' longtime rival 'The Mountain' after Hall was accused of cheating at the 2017 World's Strongest Man competition.

Hall came out on top at the showcase in Botswana three years ago but Icelandic strongman 'The Mountain, real name Hafthor Bjornsson, has claimed that he was robbed of victory.

'Thor' refused to shake Hall's hand on the podium and claimed he was robbed of victory after being docked a point for bending his knees during a rep.

The Icelandic beast claimed he did not bend his knees, but Hall has now posted footage which shows the Game Of Thrones star did deserve his penalty.

The bad blood between the two never settled following this incident and they'll now settle their differences inside a boxing ring in September 2021 after 'Thor' recently broke Hall's deadlift world record.

Hall states in the video per The Sun: "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.

"It's time for the truth to be told, for the picture to do the talking.

"Hafthor Bjornsson, you and your yes men should be ashamed of yourselves.

"Words are cheap and I'm sick and tired of hearing the lies coming out of your mouths.

"You used to be a good man and believe it or not, I used to classify you as a friend.

"But you've been poisoned by your yes men."
