On his Saturday Night Special Live, Chris Jericho took fan questions that ranged from pro wrestling to music and much more.

During the chat, Jericho was asked who he would put on his Mount Rushmore of wrestling.

This is an opinionated question as people have different answers to the Mount Rushmore question of listing their top 4 of all-time wrestlers.

“That’s hard, four, that’s for Mount Rushmore right? Like I said earlier, Owen Hart, Shawn Michaels, and Ricky Steamboat are the biggest influences of mine. Now that I’ve been in the business for almost 30 years (in October). For me, this is my personal Mount Rushmore

Shawn Michaels, to me he’s the greatest of all time, sorry, for me, what I like, he’s the greatest of all-time. Bret Hart is in there as well. I gotta put Hulk Hogan in there. Hulk Hogan was a hero of mine as a kid. The biggest, greatest star of all-time. And then what do I do? Rock? Austin? Can I get my sandblaster out and put another face on this. This is just for me, f*ck it.”

He would then go back to questioning who he would put in there like Owen Hart, Steve Austin, and The Rock.

“It’s my Mount Rushmore, I can do whatever I want. All right, you want it, you got it. Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, Hulk Hogan, Ultimo Dragon (Yoshihiro Asai). One of the greatest wrestlers I have ever seen in my life. One of the greatest performers I ever worked with. That's my four. Deal with it."
