“There’s no doubt about it, Andre the Giant has to be there,” Hogan revealed. “You know, because up there, it would have to be Ric Flair. I tell Ric Flair, ‘You’re the greatest wrestler that ever lived,’ and I’ve had other people tell me other things, but as far as I’m concerned with him loving this business and being a complete sellout, he gave up everything – family, friends, his own health, everything to be in his business. That’s kind of a crazy type of dedication, way more than I could give.”
“There are some new guys like Seth Rollins, who I really admire,” Hogan said. “You know, Kevin Owens caught my eye really early when a lot of people didn’t believe in him. And I saw him down there and said, ‘Oh my God, that brother has got it figured out. You know, and so I’m all over the place with it but for me the quick fix would be Andre, Flair, Rock and Austin. That’s a quick fix for me. Yeah, those four guys deserve it.”
The term “Mount Rushmore” is a term used by fans to refer to a hypothetical list of the four greatest or most influential wrestlers in WWE history.
