Ric Flair has divulged the wrestlers that would feature on his personal Mount Rushmore of professional wrestling.
In an interview with Wrestling Travel, the wrestling legend and WWE Hall Of Famer revealed the names that would adorn the mountainside, as well as naming the one talent he would consider coming out of retirement for.
“I’d love to wrestle Roman Reigns,” revealed Flair. “I’d like to be a bad guy against Roman if I was 35 or 40 years old. Yeah, I’d love that. They couldn’t afford to pay me,” he said, laughing.
Insofar as who would be on his Rushmore, Flair admits that he would probably be a part of it, flanked by luminary talent and Hulk Hogan, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin to name but a few.
“Well, I think because of time put in, I’m in that category,” he said. “But I’d have to go with Hulk, Stone Cold and The Undertaker. I know everyone’s gonna say I should put Andre the Giant in, but I actually think The Undertaker has had as big a run and as big an impact on the business without having to be the champion and just being the character.”
“No. 1 he’s a great guy,” he explained. “No. 2 it’s the most unique and greatest gimmick in the history of our business. He’s gotten sick of it a couple of times and changed it around but at the end of the day, whether it’s riding a motorcycle or getting out of a coffin, it’s the greatest gimmick I’ve ever seen.”
Flair was recently in the news following complications for scheduled heart surgery. The 16-time world champion has since undergone successful surgery and has returned home to recover, though he has unfortunately had to withdraw from his Starrcast II appearance.
