Mike Tyson asked to name his GOAT of professional wrestling, picked a legend
| Last updated
Mike Tyson and Francis Ngannou engaged in a GOAT debate, where they both named the greatest professional wrestler in history.
Ahead of the showdown, Tyson and Ngannou sat down with Complex as they took part in a game naming GOATs in different topics.
Tyson and Ngannou also picked their GOAT of professional wrestling, with the boxing icon opting for Ric Fiair. The former UFC champion picked Hulk Hogan.
'The Nature Boy' had a career spanning over 50 years and has won at least 21 world championship titles.
He enjoyed a legendary wrestling career, but he refused to pick himself when naming his Mount Rushmore of wrestling.
"I’m not on my Mount Rushmore. I think it’s better to have somebody else put you there," he explained.
"My Mount Rushmore in terms of importance to the business is Stone Cold, Hulk, obviously, Undertaker, and I think Shawn Michaels.
"Shawn Michaels is the greatest performer of all time in our business."
Whilst many would list The Rock as one of their picks, Flair snubbed Dwayne Johnson when discussing his choices as he cited a lack of longevity as his main reason.
He added: "He would be, except he didn’t stay long enough. I think part of the Mount Rushmore is longevity. It’s hard to be really good, and The Rock was great. But he took off.
"He’s on my Mount Rushmore for interview skills and everything else, and I remain very close to him."
