The gauntlet has finally been thrown between Hafthor ‘The Mountain’ Bjornsson and Eddie ‘The Beast’ Hall as the Game of Thrones star challenged his outspoken rival to a boxing showdown to settle their feud.

As two of the biggest and strongest humans in the world, a sanctioned match between them would be outside of the norm to be classified as Heavyweight or even Super Heavyweight.

But The Mountain looked more than eager to enter the ring in what would have to be the world’s first ‘Titan’ weight division bout.

The feud between The Mountain and The Beast could be decided in the ring.

In the post-lift interview for his world-record 501 kg (about 1104 lbs.) deadlift, The Mountain didn’t mince words when revealing the next step in his career.

“Core Sports just offered me a seven-figure contract,” he explained. “Eddie Hall has been running his mouth now for weeks and I know he got the same deal. So: Eddie, I just knocked out your record and now I’m ready to knock you out in the ring.”

By his phrasing, it sounds like Core Sports and The Mountain had already discussed a potential match between the two strongman stars.

After the powder dust settled, the new Deadlift World Record holder told his rival to sign the Core contract to put The Beast’s fists where his mouth is.

The two have been casting stones at each other, but it really ramped up in the weeks prior to Mountain’s attempt at breaking Beast’s 2016 500kg (about 1102 lbs.) deadlift record.

Though Beast shares a competitive respect for his rival – he said he genuinely looked forward to having his record broken prior to The Mountain’s attempt – he wouldn’t recognize the new world record unless it was under the “appropriate” competitive conditions.

The new world record might go unrecognized for some.

That sentiment was echoed by huge figures in the scene such as legendary strongman Brian Shaw, who said the home gym attempt would open a “pandora’s box” in the sport.

Comments made by Beast must have rubbed Thor the wrong way, who is now looking to settle their dispute with a battle of the behemoths soon.

Update May 2 12:55 PM PST

The Beast has officially accepted The Mountain’s challenge. In his video, The Beast said he’s taking up The Mountain in his challenge for calling him a “cheat” in 2017.

Now The Beast is out to teach his rival a lesson by “ripping [his] f**king head off.”

The Beast is ready for the challenge of going up against someone with ample height and reach, but it’s been a habit of his to prove doubters wrong.

The Kardashian family decided to cause some TikTok chaos on December 3 when they collectively FaceTimed some random celebrity contacts, and creators like David Dobrik and James Charles were on their hit list.

If there’s anyone who can make a stir on social media, it’s undoubtedly the Kardashian family. With their immense power and wealth, they could pull some insane pranks if they truly wanted to.

But sometimes staying simple ends up being far funnier, so the family teamed up with each other to spook some of the famous faces in their contact list.

While plenty of influential people naturally will have collected a couple of phone numbers from members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, for many it’s unlikely that they ever expected them to call. And the Kardashians know that full well.

In two videos uploaded to Kylie Jenner’s TikTok account, the viewfinder shows a large group of Kardashians standing in a group facing the phone, almost eerily still.

The group cycled through a selection of staggeringly famous faces, like actress Jennifer Lawrence and singer Justin Bieber. However, there were a couple of faces that popped up that some may have been surprised to see.

The phone screen showed that it was connecting to hugely popular YouTuber David Dobrik, and as soon as he answered he looked thoroughly confused. He quickly ripped off his face mask and looked even closer at his screen, immediately saying “that’s f***king ridiculous” when he realized that he had in fact just been called by the Kardashian family.

Another familiar influencer pranked by the family was beauty YouTuber James Charles, who has a friendship with Kylie Jenner and has collaborated with her on his channel several times. Even he looked thoroughly baffled to have received an unannounced call, saying “what is going on?”

In the comments of the video, David said that “I thought I was being recruited,” whereas James had the opposite reaction and wrote, “I thought I was about to get sued.”
