The Undertaker is listed by some fans on their Mount Rushmore of professional wrestling, but the former WWE Champion has given his list.
This is an opinionated question as people have different answers to the Mount Rushmore question of listing their top 4 of all-time wrestlers.
“The Deadman” did so while doing an interview with Comic Book. This is where he listed Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Steve Austin, and Andre The Giant.
“You got to have [Ric] Flair. You got to have [Hulk] Hogan. Stone Cold [Steve Austin]…. That fourth one’s tough. It could be Harley [Race]. It could be Dusty [Rhodes]. It could be Bruno [Sammartino]. And I base that on contributions to the business. Not so much if they were a great worker or this or that, but… Oh, I know my fourth, it’s Andre [The Giant]. I don’t know why I forgot Andre. So yeah, it would probably be Flair, Hogan, Stone Cold and Andre.”
Taker was also asked about fans putting him on their list, which he stated that he’s flattered and honored that his legacy is what it is. He stated that when you look at the names mentioned above, he thinks they really captivated fans.
He considers Flair as the standard, he credited Hogan for being at the top when WWE took off. He put over Austin for being in WWE when it came roaring back and noted how Andre is just the 8th Wonder of the World.
“So I’m humbled and honored to even be in the conversation, but I think those are my four.”
Taker also talked about his WWE Network docuseries and more. Check out the full interview here.
