Ric Flair reveals his Mount Rushmore of wrestlers, explains why The Rock isn't on there

Wrestling legend Ric Flair once revealed his Mount Rushmore of wrestlers as he picked FOUR big names.

'The Nature Boy' selected his Mount Rushmore of wrestlers as he excluded himself despite his stellar career.

The 16-time world champion enjoyed a stunning career spanning 50 years, but he refused to name himself.

In naming his Mount Rushmore, he omitted some legends of the wrestling world - including The Rock, Triple H, Randy Savage and Bret Hart, among many others.

Flair, however, selected four WWE Hall of Famers as he opted for Stone Cold Steven Austin, Hulk Hogan, The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels.

What's more, he called 'The Heartbreak Kid' the greatest performer of all time in glowing praise.

"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."

What about The Rock? Whilst many would list him as one of their picks, Flair snubbed Dwayne Johnson when discussing his choices as he cited a lack of longevity as his main reason.

On The Rock, Flair 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."

Austin, Hogan, The Undertaker and Michaels are among the greatest wrestlers in history, having starred in WWE in the glory days of the company.
