World’s Strongest Man Brian Shaw Calls Out Brad Castleberry On Fake Weights!

Brian Shaw known worldwide as one of WSM’s most colossal Strongmen, he has finished within the top four every year since 2011 and taken the World’s Strongest Man crown on 4-times – first in 2011, again in 2013 and the third triumph in 2015 with the fourth in Botswana, 2016.

Shaw also holds an extraordinary set of world strength records, from the 825lb Squat to the 880lb Deadlift, to the 1,140 strapped Hummer Tire Lift.

The 6’8, 440lb giant Brian Shaw is likely in for a future matchup with the famous one and only… Brad Castleberry! Yes, that’s right. Brian Shaw, the 4-time World’s Strongest Man champion, challenged Brad Castleberry via his official Instagram.

Brian Shaw posted the following video on his Instagram where he tagged Brad Castleberry while doing this tricep exercise and he says

“Maybe I should bump it up to 3 plates per side to match Brad Castleberry”

“Some accessory tricep work with the awesome Rogue Curl Bar. This bar weighs 30 lbs so the total weight is 210 lbs/95kg…easy working set. Maybe I should bump it up to 3 plates per side to match @bradcastleberry (Brad Castleberry)… what do you think? Haha…”

Shaw also added:

“Brad Castleberry I will fly you out here to CO so we can train together. No better way to set the record straight and shut everyone up than to train with a 4X World’s Strongest Man and show them what you can do. Let me know “

The interesting thing here is, surprisingly Brad Castleberry accepted the offer and replied to Shaw’s comments:

“I see you killing. Yeah let’s make it happen.”

and then Shaw replied to Castleberry’s comment:

“Brad Castleberry alright I will shoot you a DM so we can set it up. I’m a straight shooter and will take you at your word. Will be awesome to see you gain back some respect by training with me.”

Brian Shaw has challenged Brad Castleberry….and he accepted!

This is a pretty different side of Brad Castleberry, we all know he’s been accused of using fake weights in his training videos and been challenged by several different peoples, but this is the only time he openly accepted the invitation on the world Strongest Man Instagram page. So could this be the end of the Brad Castleberry’s fake weights era?

Now the obvious question is, will Castleberry show up and finally proves everyone wrong or he’s not going to show up at all and just make himself look even worse?

Do you think Brad will ever take Brian Shaw’s challenge?

He should do it. If he can, then the rumors will die and he can do as he please. Until then, he’s a wanktard.

Chet Hewitt

Won’t happen, castleberry is a bitch and it’s all about followers for him.

Emmanuel Ballenger Jr.
Guest

That is very true. This HAS happened before and he’s backed out every time. Eh, it’s a rise or fall situation for him.

Fake weights or not Castleberry looks a hell of a lot better. No one gives a shit how strong you are if you have a fat gut.

Mina Elias

Shaaban Bin Salim
Guest

Ajmi Bin Salim Lol he’s not gonna show up. Or maybe just maybe he was waiting on one of the strongest challengers put there.

Ajmi Bin Salim
Guest

he won’t show up. that guy is not a powerlifter.

John Brickner
Guest

Sorry to burst the bubble lol, but Brian Shaw ain’t World’s Strongest Man anymore….

M.e. O
Guest

They need to correct the headline to previous WSM title holder, but he techically is the WSM as he did hold the title for 2 years. Its semantics I know, but technically the author is not wrong saying Shaw is WSM, hes just not the current title holder.. Still, I wouldnt mess with him. Shaws a monster.. Lol

John Brickner
Guest

M.e. O’Brien-Hughes can’t argue with that lol, he won the title on 4 separate occasions, and I certainly wouldn’t choose to mess with him lol, but Fitness Volt really do need to word their headlines better lol

M.e. O
Guest

Yeah. And he did hold it for 4 years didnt he? I cant remember everything.. Lol I do miss the days of Magnusson and Pudzianowski going at it. And before​ that Magnusson vs Samuelsson. Sigmarssen.. Lol

Its funny but it was actually an event when I was 5 where I watched Kazmeir win and I was hooked ever since. I won a few local events in the 90s but chose college football over sm and got hurt.. Never been the same since..

Simon Larsen
Guest

M.e. O’Brien-Hughes I do miss the old days, however the guys today Would destroy all of them

Michael Olden
Guest

4 time world’s strongest man is still the strongest in my book. But hey, at that level they’re all monsters and it’s anyone’s game.

John Brickner
Guest

Don’t get me wrong though as I’m a BIG Brian Shaw fan and was over the moon when he won every time, but Fitness Volt really should clarify their headlines more accurately by at least putting the last year he won it “2016” down OR just saying “World’s Strongest Man Winner” lol….
AND of course, I’m British and we’re VERY PROUD over here that our man “The Beast” Eddie Hall took the title this year lol…. 😃👊👊👊

John Brickner
Guest

Michael Olden I’ll always agree at their level they’re the absolute elite in a world of monsters lol, but also don’t forget mariusz Pudzianowski won the title 5 times 2002, 3, 5, 7 & 8, and as great as he was (AND as much as I still consider him my favourite WSM of all time) I think we’d all agree now that even he isn’t the strongest ever today in anybody’s book lol…

Leigh Thomas
Guest

Sorry…..isn’t Eddie Hall world’s strongest man ?

Marek Piecyk
Guest

in deadlifts only lol not in the actual WSM competition

Leigh Thomas
Guest

He won this year’s WSM….The Mountain came second I’m pretty sure.

Adam Hussey
Guest

Check your source bro he deffo won 😂

M.e. O
Guest

Eddie Hall won WSM in January for 2017. He is the current reigning title holder. This years WSM tournament has just started last month so until it concludes Eddie is the current WSM.

Nick Youngblood
Guest

Do shaw suffer a hamstring injury during that competition?

Teem Phocks
Guest

Yes Eddy hall won this year his first WSM Shaw has 4

Leigh Thomas
Guest

Yes…..and is the reigning WSM. That was my point. Not how many he has won. But thanks for the History lesson.

Shaun Davies
Guest

No one enters WSM injury free and certainly no one comes out of it injury free. Eddie has worked his way from the amateur circuit and up the rankings the hard way. Anyone who hates on that is a simpleton.

David Mathieson
Guest

He will accept then have an injury jus before go time

Howard Taylor New
Guest

If Brad was really that strong he’d be out at every gym and convention flaunting it. Not begging for publicity. In the weights game only actions speak.

Chris Wilson
Guest

Agreed!

It’s about damn time for Castleberry to set this straight…

Brian Moore
Guest

Right!!

Michael Gerwer

Castleberry has a pretty darn good physique, however you can build a good physique without being extremely strong. I’m not strong compared to many many people but still have a physique. Him challenging someone who is leaps and bounds stronger than him, I don’t think that will go too well for him.

In the mean time, he really should stop stripping down all his clothes before a lift. It’s annoying and his ego/personality need to go away

David Hanscom
Guest

Shaw challenged him, castleberry accepted

Michael Gerwer
Guest

And what do you think is going to happen with that 🤔

Brian Culek
Guest

It wasn’t even a challenge in the manner you’re saying it is. Read the article.

Michael Gerwer
Guest

I really don’t care to dude. His ego sucks that cancels him out in my mind no time for that

David Hanscom
Guest

I hope he follows through, im not a hater of him, one of my buddies went to his gym while in California and he was there lifting, he said that what he does is not fake. Watched him pump out a easy set of 15 an arm with 80lb db’s, which he verified were real without a doubt as he used them himself

David Hanscom
Guest

True Brian Culek not even a challenge just got his attention and invited him to prove himself

Simon Larsen
Guest

Search the tube, he is as fake as breast implants

Samu Thomson
Guest

Fake weights = castleberry….lifting lite to meduim weight can get u a good physique but would rather lift heavy for density and size

Victor Ruiz
Guest

He’s not going to show up lol

Ryan Oldford
Guest

He lifts heavy, just not as heavy as some of his videos where he is near elite level powerlifting numbers lol

Michael Gerwer
Guest

Exactly. Don’t claim to be the MetRX worlds strongest man when you know someone that’s 6’7″ and 350lbs is gonna whoop that ass

Favian Barron

Shaw isn’t challenging him, he is however offering him an opportunity to set the record straight. Whether he uses fake plates or not, I’d like to see this happen.

Bryan Rozan
Guest

People are dumb. Fake plates??? Look at the guy!!! He looks like he eats plates for a cheat meal!

Martin Jackson
Guest
Martin Jackson

It’s become very common for people to use fake weights dude wake up. Yes he has a good physique but he isn’t stronger than Brian Shaw. And doesn’t lift what he claims.

Chris LaBriola
Guest

if hes not using fake weights then he his literally the strongest human to ever live. Id like to see that proven as well

Kevin R Grace
Guest

If he’s not backing down maybe he can back it up? We’ll see.

Zul Amali Mahri
Guest

lol Bryan you’re the dumb one. go get educated please

Jacob Horvath
Guest

Bryan Rozan The dude is claiming Eddie Hall territory 3 lifts at half of Eddie Hall’s body weight. He looks good but when’s the last time he even competed in body building? A lot of “Instagram” fitness personalities don’t compete because they probably won’t win and they loose money that way.

Kerlijah Stroud

Tristan Tiny I’ll believe it when I see it
