The Undertaker names four fighters for WWE ‘Mount Rushmore’ but there’s no place for Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson – The Sun | The Sun
THE UNDERTAKER has revealed the four WWE stars he thinks would be worthy of gracing a WWE version of Mount Rushmore.
It comes after Dana White named Amanda Nunes, Chuck Liddell, Royce Gracie and Jon Jones in the list of fighters on the UFC's fictional Rushmore.
And after WWE legend Taker – real name Mark Calaway – was asked by Comic Book who he would have represent pro wrestling's elite, he chose Andre The Giant, Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan and Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Leaving out The Rock, he said: "You've got to have Flair. You got to have Hogan. Stone Cold.
"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.
"I don’t know why I forgot Andre. So yeah, it would probably be Flair, Hogan, Stone Cold and Andre."
Taker modestly left himself out of the list, but admitted he is stoked even to be mentioned alongside the four WWE icons.
He said: “So I’m humbled and honored to even be in the conversation, but I think those are my four.”
But after announcing his retirement, fans are adamant the Deadman is deserving of a spot on the WWE's own Rushmore.

Another said: "Undertaker has a great argument of being on WWEs Mount Rushmore. I would actually put him on before Hogan."
One added: "Wrestling fan or not you know him he’s an icon and on the Mount Rushmore of wrestling one of the reasons I and so many fell in love as kids."
