The Rock reveals his three greatest wrestlers of all time

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has named who he thinks are the three greatest wrestlers of all time. He did so when reflecting on his big match against Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania 18 in 2002 at the SkyDome in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

This is when he took to his official Instagram account to celebrate the anniversary of the match. In this post, he also named his three GOATS. Those stars are Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan, and Ric Flair. He wrote the following:

“This past weekend @WWE celebrated the 17th anniversary of what was billed as “ICON vs ICON” to determine who would go down in @WWE history as THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME.

It was yours truly, VS The Immortal Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania.

What made this match so special was that there was no Heavyweight Championship on the line.

Just two men.

Just two careers.

And 85,000+ of the most insane ELECTRIC crowd I have ever had the privilege to perform in front of.

My friend and childhood hero, Hulk Hogan passed the torch to me on this historic night which decreed me becoming “THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME”, but the truth is – to me – the GOAT are the three men who paved the way for me and so many others in pro wrestling/

I just worked very hard, connected with the audience and caught a break. These GOATS were good enough to recognize I had something to offer and graciously passed the torch.”

Torch passed. Grateful. This past weekend @WWE celebrated the 17th anniversary of what was billed as “ICON vs ICON” to determine who would go down in @WWE history as THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME. It was yours truly, VS The Immortal Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania. What made this match so special was that there was no Heavyweight Championship on the line. Just two men. Just two careers. And 85,000+ of the most insane ELECTRIC crowd I have ever had the privilege to perform in front of. It was almost as if every single person that night in the Toronto SkyDome made up their mind that they would give every ounce of energy they had because they knew this match was only going to be seen once in a lifetime. My friend and childhood hero, Hulk Hogan passed the torch to me on this historic night which decreed me becoming “THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME”, but the truth is – to me – the GOAT are the three men who paved the way for me and so many others in pro wrestling/ @hulkhogan @ricflairnatureboy @steveaustinbsr I just worked very hard, connected with the audience and caught a break. These GOATS were good enough to recognize I had something to offer and graciously passed the torch. Grateful.
