The Mount Rushmore of professional wrestling is something that fans often debate about online, and recently Kurt Angle gave his picks.
The WWE Hall Of Famer spoke with The Sun where he revealed which four men would make his personal Mount Rushmore of professional wrestling:
“A guy like Shawn Michaels would be on the Mount Rushmore, Ric Flair would be on Mount Rushmore,” Angle said. “I don’t see Brock as an overall athlete that would be up there. But don’t get me wrong, what he does in the ring, no-one does better.
“‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin and The Rock,” Angle revealed. “I would never put myself up there, it’s just not who I am. I imagine some people do, but when I think about Mount Rushmore, I don’t think of myself.”
With mentioning Brock Lesnar in his answer, Angle went into more detail as to why the WWE Champion doesn’t make his list:
“With Brock, in most cases they would pass him up,” Angle said. “I think it’s because he’s not a guy—he’s a man of very few words. He goes in that ring and performs as good, if not better, than anyone in the world, but in sports entertainment you have got to have something behind that. So, if you are talking about Mount Rushmore then you are talking about the overall entertainment—how people get wowed and what they say to people, to the fans, and how they pertain themselves in their character.”
