Thursday May 21st, 2015

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, the World's Strongest Man competitor known to most as Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane may be making the leap from the battlefields of Westeros for the squared circle of the WWE.

Björnsson was a guest at WWE's NXT Takeover on Wednesday night, sitting with Stephanie McMahon at the event.

The 6'9" strongman has also recently visited the WWE's performance center where he met with WWE's Goldust, leading some to speculate that Björnsson may be looking to join the pro wrestling outfit, according to Uproxx.
