Who are the wrestlers included on Chris Jericho‘s Mount Rushmore?
This was discussed by the AEW wrestling guru during a recent appearance on Superstar Crossover.
Highlights of his response to this query and the identification of the four wrestling icons who rank highest on his personal Mount Rushmore list are included below.
On his Mt. Rushmore of wrestling:
I always think back to my favorite professional wrestlers as a fan: Shawn Michaels, Owen Hart, Ricky Steamboat, and Hulk Hogan. Those are still the four persons I have on Mount Rushmore because they were my childhood favorites.
On how he feels when he is named to people’s Mt. Rushmore of wrestling:
The GOATs, Mount Rushmore, and other such subjects make for fascinating conversation. But you probably never really say it, you simply are it, if you are the GOAT or if you deserve to be on someone’s Mount Rushmore. To me, it’s cool when people believe that and when people make those compliments, but I just keep doing the best that I can to be the best entertainer that I can. You know, people like to do the Mount Rushmores and they want to say, “This guy’s the best, that guy’s the best. And whether people rank and grade me is up to them; I know that as long as I’m giving it my all and continuing to perform at a high level, I’ll be content with what I’m doing.”
