Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Has Named His 'Mount Rushmore Of Wrestling Greats'
WWE legend Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has refused to count himself in a Mount Rushmore-inspired wrestling memorial.
Bleacher Report tweeted out on Thanksgiving Day an image of a wrestling Mount Rushmore featuring 'Nature Boy' Ric Flair, The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Undertaker.
And the tweet also asked fans to name their four picks of all-time wrestling legends.

However, The Rock also decided to enter the debate and named his four choices based on a "wrestling star's impact and drawing power during their respective runs."
Johnson revealed that his Mount Rushmore would include Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Stone Cold and Gorgeous George or Bruno Sammartino.
The 47-year-old Hollywood superstar tweeted: "I made an edit after thinking about the wrestling star's impact and drawing power during their respective runs.
"Thanks for the carve out and always a cool debate.
"I'd go with/ Hulk Hogan Ric Flair Gorgeous George/Bruno Sammartino Steve Austin."

WWE legend Stone Cold also named WCW icon Ric Flair as the finest wrestler to "ever lace up a pair of boots."
Johnson was one of the biggest superstars in WWE during the late 1990s and early 2000s before transitioning into a successful acting career.
The 'Brahma Bull' would eventually return to the wrestling promotion and enter into a heated feud with John Cena, which culminated in two showdowns at WrestleMania XXVIII and WrestleMania 29.
Johnson admitted in August that he had "quietly retired from wrestling" and had a "really wonderful career."
The future WWE Hall of Famer explained: "I miss wrestling, I love wrestling.
"Yes, I do... I quietly retired from wrestling because I was lucky enough to have just a really wonderful career and accomplish what I wanted to accomplish, but there's nothing like a live crowd, a live audience, a live microphone as you both know."
