Big E has been doing the media rounds to promote this Sunday’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view event where he’ll be taking part in the Money in the Bank Ladder match.
During an interview with Vicente Beltrán of ViBe & Wrestling, he gave a list of tag teams who he would put on the Mount Rushmore of professional wrestling. This is an opinionated question as people have different answers to the Mount Rushmore question of listing their top 4 all-time tag teams.
This is where he named The Dudley Boyz, Edge & Christian, Harlem Heat, and The Road Warriors.
“I’m very pretty self-deprecating so I… it’s hard for me to put us as the greatest tag team of all time and I’m very thankful that a lot of people have… I’m very proud of our accolades. I think we’re definitely worthy of being in the conversation. As far as the mount rushmore of tag teams I would put the Road Warriors… man… there’s so many great ones let’s go Road Warriors let’s go Edge and Christian, let’s go Dudley Boyz… the problem is I’m gonna have an omission and I’m gonna feel real bad about it… and for my final tag team let’s go Harlem Heat, I loved Harlem Heat as a kid I thought they were very… they had a lot of swagger, they’re very cool they’re great in the ring and there’s definitely going to be a team that I’ve forgotten and I will feel bad about it but yeah those are my choices.
I think there are a ton of incredible tag teams and I think if you’re around my age or a little old, if you’re an adult wrestling fan and you grew up in the 90s or the 80s or even earlier I think for a lot of people nostalgia is such a big part of their wrestling fandom and I think it’s hard for a lot of people to select a more modern team a team that is currently on television. When you think of… like the golden era the golden age of wrestling you think back to the 90s, you think back to the Attitude Era, there are so many teams who are so influential so I think that’s for a lot of fans. I think that’s why they might struggle with The New Day choice but honestly, I’ve seen a lot of positive reception too, a lot of people who really appreciate all that we have done and given as well so I’m very thankful I’ll just say that I’m thankful for the selection I’m thankful for all the time I’ve had with Kofi and Woods and I’m really proud of all we’ve done.”
Big E also talked about the possibility of Conor McGregor coming to WWE, possibly reuniting with Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods and more.
