Kyle O’Reilly has been doing the media rounds to promote this Tuesday’s NXT: Great American Bash special where he’ll be battling Adam Cole in a singles match.
During an interview with Barstool Sports, he gave a list of wrestlers 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 of all-time wrestlers.
O’Reilly named Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan, Kenta Kobashi, and The Undertaker.
Regarding Austin, Kyle said that Austin was the reason that he got into the business while Hogan is such an iconic figure in wrestling. The reason he lists Kenta is due to him being one of his favorite wrestlers and matches he’s studied countless times. Finally, Taker is someone who captured his imagination as a kid.
