The Rock chimes in on the wrestling Mount Rushmore debate


When it comes to the greatest superstars in WWE history, it's hard to pick a definite top superstar of all time, let alone four for a wrestling Mount Rushmore.

Bleacher Report Wrestling attempted to do just that, and it sparked an interesting discussion which included one potential candidate for the wrestling Mount Rushmore, The Rock.

B/R Wrestling posted their own wrestling Mount Rushmore on their Twitter account to kick off the discussion.

On their wrestling Mount Rushmore, they included Ric Flair, The Rock, The Undertaker, and Stone Cold Steve Austin.

The Great One responded with his very own Mount Rushmore, switching out two names, as he picked Hulk Hogan, Flair, Gorgeous George/Bruno Sammartino, and Austin.

He said in his tweet: "*I made an edit after thinking about the wrestling star's impact and drawing power during their respective runs. Thanks for the carve out and always a cool debate.

"I'd go with/ Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Gorgeous George/Bruno Sammartino, Steve Austin ?? #WrestlingsMtRushmore"

The Rock also explained why Andre the Giant didn't receive a spot on his wrestling Mount Rushmore when asked by a fan on Twitter.

He said: "Andres the extremely rare anomaly. As is Undertaker. They’re both rare air you can’t quantify or compare. Literally they sit at a table for only two."

CM Punk produced his own wrestling Mount Rushmore too, naming Mitsuharu Misawa, Macho Man Randy Savage, Austin, and Harley Race.

Ten names have already been mentioned by B/R Wrestling and The Rock for a wrestling Mount Rushmore, but there are plenty of other names that could be featured.


Some names include John Cena, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, Andre the Giant, Rowdy Roddy Piper, CM Punk, Eddie Guerrero, The Ultimate Warrior, Jake 'The Snake' Roberts, and even Vince McMahon himself.

You could also dive into the women's division and include the likes of Lita, Trish Stratus, AJ Lee, Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, and Mae Young.

WWE superstars and fans alike could debate about a wrestling Mount Rushmore until the end of time as there are plenty of candidates that are worthy of the honour to be named one of the best ever.
