What's the story?
Eddie Hall, 2017 World's Strongest Man in an interview to Sports360 revealed that he has been approached by WWE officials and is thinking over to join WWE.
In case you didn't know
Eddie Hall became the first British strongman to win WSM title after 25 years. Hall was recently acknowledged after successfully performing a 500 kg deadlift in Botswana. He has scripted his name in various records book by becoming UK's Strongest Man and Britain's Strongest Man.
The heart of matter
Eddie Hall beat Iceland's Hafthor Bjornsson to lift the WSM title. He performed a jaw-dropping deadlift where Hall flipped 500 kg tire six times followed by squats with a weight of 320 kg. Soon after Eddie was named the World's Strongest Man, he announced his retirement from the sport. In an interview with Sports360, he revealed how hard it had been for him to win the title.
"I've won the World's Strongest Man and that was my main goal. If I were to go back now, it was so stressful and I put a lot of pressure on my body to win it. I'm only 6ft 3ins and I achieved a bodyweight of 440lbs, and to put it blank, if I stay at that weight for so long, I'm going to kill myself
Eddie said that he is aiming for a different career now. Upon asking he revealed about his meeting with WWE officials and hinted at entering WWE.
"We've been approached by WWE and it's something we'll look at. But I'm doing so well with all the appearances, endorsements, and all the potential TV work coming my way so I'm just biding my time.Me and my manager are just going to pick the best option and go from there."
Last year, Eddie aka The Beast was expected to make an appearance during WWE's UK tour in November, somehow his plans stopped short. If Hall decides to join WWE, he will be the second WSM after Mark Henry.
WWE surely has some plans if they have approached Hall. If he joins WWE, then the WWE Universe can expect some drama and change. Pro Wrestling is a rapidly growing industry with opportunities he can look forward to it in order to add more records to his name.
