Game of Thrones actor Hafþór Bjornsson has received multiple offers from WWE.

The towering actor and 2018 world’s strongest man – who played The Mountain in the HBO fantasy epic and has since moved into boxing – has opened up on Vince McMahon’s company trying to get him on board, and explained why the move isn’t for him.

On the Impaulsive podcast, host Logan Paul asked: ‘Have you ever considered WWE or was that ever on your or their radar?’

Bjornsson replied: ‘Theirs. They reached out a few times. I thought about it but like I said before… Iceland.’

However, the giant – who is focused on facing strongman rival Eddie Hall in the boxing ring – revealed he wouldn’t want to be away from his homeland of Iceland as much as he’d need to be for a wrestling career.

He added: ‘The more I started to travel the more I started to appreciate Iceland and the less I wanted to live somewhere else.

‘When I was younger I was like, “Yeah I will move somewhere else.” Then I started to travel a lot, travelled around the world, and was then like, “No.” ‘

Logan has his own experiences in the world of WWE, and he appeared just last month to join Hapy Corbin in beating down their fellow rival Kevin Owens.

It’s unclear if the YouTube star will continue to feature regularly on WWE TV, as he appeared on Raw last month – although getting involved with KO here is a much better fit for him.

The celebrity previously appeared at WrestleMania 37 as he was at ringside for Owens’ win over Sami Zayn.

He tried to switch his allegiances after seeming to believe in Zayn’s conspiracy theory before the big show, which didn’t sit too well with the latter.

However, it was KO who had the last laugh as he hit a huge Stunner on Logan to give the crowd something to cheer.
