  • And speaking of intense guys and strong guys, why don't we transition to your video with Eddie Hall?

  • That was an amazing one.

  • I almost cried, let's go.

  • Uh huh.

  • It was on my nan's deathbed that when my nan died, I was the only one there in the hospital.

  • Mhm, mm hmm.

  • So it's just a tough thing to talk and I understand I appreciate you talking about uh oh and as I say it was, she was the only person I could talk to about my dreams and I would never get anything negative back.

  • You know, she always always believed in me.

  • Uh huh.

  • Come on.

  • And on her deathbed when she died, I was the only one there and they really put you in a room with with the deceased and you can have I'll be a private time with him.

  • I just remember Talking to two men in for hours on end about my life, about these uh Mhm About my dreams, about my aspirations and the strongman came up.

  • It was you know, a few months after I did the strongman contest and said I was going to win the world's strongest man and I made the promise to him and that on a deathbed that I would win the world's strongest man one day.

  • So there is the world's strongest man in my opinion, being super strong, right?

  • He's showing us that he's real that he's emotional and uh most people had never seen that side of Eddie Hall um Eddie Hall is known for having the biggest dead lift in the world of 500 kg.

  • I think he still owns a record.

  • Maybe not, doesn't matter, he's currently on the set of expendables for with Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham, he's taken his life to the next level.

  • But if you want to know what drives this man to do this stuff and Eddie Hall works hard like to become the world's strongest man.

  • Like the schedule he puts on this guy works to see where it came from, it's all there, you know, it all came down to a promise he made on his to his grandmother on her deathbed and yes, that's deep man, I mean uh tear up just watching that and it's just I felt so fortunate that I could hold the space for him in here and create that moment that so many people worldwide can see Eddie because most people see Eddie, he's really funny, he's got a great instagram, he does amazing physical things, but most people don't get to see that that all comes from somewhere which is a place of pain or emotion or a promise.

  • So that was a beautiful moment.

  • And I got to thank Eddie for going there because he could have chosen not to and he and he did so uh that's a strong man, I think you deserve kudos.

  • Well brian obviously Eddie did go there, but you had such a masterful craft will way of getting him to open up.

  • You know a lot of the host we see on different shows, they always need to fill the blanks.

  • They always need to interject something, but you let him go.

  • You looked at him, you're listening, showing empathy.

  • You're saying please tell me more.

  • Explain pausing the power of pausing.

  • I mean really like I felt like that was a magical moment again on London.

  • Real thanks to your ability to let people communicate and share their deepest stories.

  • Thank you.

  • I appreciate that.

  • I mean, I always say, uh, if I do my job right?

  • I uh, I just shut the funk up.

  • Like that's my job really.

  • You know, and so if I'm really doing it right, we've created the atmosphere, we put the person in the chair and then my job is to listen and to hopefully take them into these places.

  • And again, that came after maybe 90 minutes of talking about his whole life.

  • And there's a, there's a lot more there, there's a lot of depth with him.

  • He was, you know, nearly suicidal at one point, not the guy you would expect him to be.

  • Um, and uh, and we got him there.

  • But you know, I've had a lot of very strong men cry on my show and I'm not saying it's a metric that I shoot for, but if you cry on London real like I did just a few minutes ago, then it means we're getting somewhere important.

  • You know, everybody has an emotional side and it's nice for all of us to see that side.

  • And I've had World Championship boxers like Nigel Benn cry for like two minutes straight.

  • This is the Dark Destroyer, one of the scariest guys in the world who two hours before I did a face off with and he was yelling at me saying, there's a face off, you know, like that, right when I met him and then two hours later, he's crying and share about his moment when he found, you know God and changed his life and you know, realized what he was doing to his family.

  • So that's what we're trying to do here at London Real.

  • We're trying to tell you someone's story, the good, the bad and the ugly, the journey of the ark that usually included some down to get to the up.

And speaking of intense guys and strong guys, why don't we transition to your video with Eddie Hall?
