Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson says he will have a 5am practice session with Hafthor ‘Thor’ Bjornsson who has to think about Eddie Hall rematch


If Hafthor Bjornsson wasn’t Hollywood enough already, he could now train with one of the world’s biggest celebrities ahead of a potential rematch with Eddie Hall.

WWE and movie star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson invited “Thor” – aka The Mountain from Game of Thrones – for a 5 a.m. practice session before his next boxing match.

Thor dominated the fight on the judges’ scorecards and earned bragging rights

In March, Thor faced a grudge fight against Hall, the world’s strongest man, in what has been dubbed the “heaviest boxing match in history.”

The two strongmen combined for a massive 47 stone and both hit the deck before Thor’s dominance in the fight resulted in a unanimous decision victory.

The long-running feud between the duo appears to have been settled, but, subsequently, the two welcomed the prospect of a rematch later this year.

Thor, who has floored Hall twice, could come back with an even bigger punch, with help from one of LA’s toughest residents.

Thor had previously tweeted in reference to The Rock’s legendary morning workouts, only to receive a response from the Fast & Furious star.

“Great jet lag,” Thor wrote. “Wake up at 4am.

Thor is a giant in the ring and could be joined by The Rock

“Don’t @TheRock train at 4am everyday? Do I have to train? #Absolutely not.”

The Rock is renowned for his brutal training regimen, but he was still humbled to admit that he didn’t start at 4am, he gave himself an extra hour of rest and laughed at his own fame – and of her fashion choices.

“Technically, I wake up at 4 a.m. every day and train at 5 a.m.,” he replied.

“One day, we will have to strike iron together.

“The strongest man in the world, boxer, actor, etc., and the tall, brown, bald, tattooed guy who’s only famous for carrying a fanny pack.

“Keep kicking ass, bro.”
