The Undertaker revealed that both Stone Cold Steve Austin and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson would make his all-time Mount Rushmore for wrestling -- but there was no place for Ric Flair.
The 56-year-old wrestling legend ended his illustrious three-decade-long WWE career in 2020 and bowed out at the company’s Survivor Series pay-per-view.
Undertaker, real name Mark Calaway, is widely regarded as one of the best wrestlers of all time alongside the likes of The Rock, Stone Cold and Flair.
The future WWE Hall of Famer has been more transparent during his time in the wrestling industry after no longer needing to protect his in-ring persona.
Speaking to Kevin Hart as part of the Laugh Out Loud Network, Undertaker was asked who would be the four faces from the wrestling world to feature on his Mount Rushmore.
The Deadman kicked things off by selecting WWE legend Andre the Giant before picking Stone Cold and Hart’s Jumanji: The Next Level co-star The Rock.
Finally, closing out Undertaker’s Mount Rushmore quartet was none other than Shawn Michaels, who he faced in incredible back-to-back WrestleMania matches.
Flair, who is widely considered one of the finest wrestlers in history, failed to make Undertaker’s Mount Rushmore alongside the likes of Bret Hart and Hulk Hogan.
During the Cold as Balls segment with Hart, Undertaker claimed that both in his mind and his heart that he wanted to continue wrestling.
The Phenom admitted that he would not have been able to prolong his wrestling career, though, with injuries and surgeries taking their toll on his body.
“In my mind, I wanted to do it and, in my heart, I still wanted to do it,” Undertaker said.
“But I realised, my body couldn’t do what it used to do. The injuries, I couldn't even put a number on.
“The surgeries, I've had upwards of 17-18 surgeries. Everybody feels like they’ve got to give that disclaimer right away, you know, ‘That s**t’s not real, is it?’ Well, it’s real enough to cause 17 surgeries.
“People don’t realise that within the course of a match, you’re only a couple of inches away at any given time from something really catastrophic.”
