    Just a huge guy trying to squeeze through a small space.

    It's not that small of a space. I like Eddie, he's a cool guy and someone who is not afraid to get out of his comfort zone, but watching him struggle to get out of the car like that goes to show the limitations of being as bulky as he is.

    I'm pretty sure Eddie's aware of the issues with being so large. He's said numerous times that he plans to retire soon and shed a lot of weight. Eddie is one of those guys who will do whatever it takes to excell. For strongman it meant he kept havng to pack on mass. I expect we'll see him get shredded after his contract is over.

    lol That was funny to watch. Eddie's also fucking tall so he would suffer anyway.

    I don't know if I would say "fucking tall". He's 6' 2" (1.92m), which is reasonably tall for the general population, but actually pretty short for a strongman.

    6'2 is actually 188 cm. I know because that's my height! 191cm (which he's listed at) would be 6'3. Seems more likely he's around 6'1-6'2 (185-188cm) though judging by these posts: https://heightboard.com/thread-How-Tall-is-Eddie-Hall , https://www.celebheights.com/s/Eddie-Hall-6921.html

    It's not that tall. Then again average male height here is about 6 feet. We Scandinavians are not as tall as the Dutch, but it's close. Same bloodlines.

    Didn't he injure his back weeks before the event? If I recall correctly, that is what happened. He knew he would shit the DL, so he focused elsewhere and got a high enough number on the DL to pass by.
