Ex-WWE Star CM Punk Has Named His 'Mount Rushmore Of Wrestling Greats'

Ex-WWE Star CM Punk Has Named His 'Mount Rushmore Of Wrestling Greats'

CM Punk has named WWE legend Stone Cold Steve Austin amongst his picks for a wrestling-inspired Mount Rushmore.

The 41-year-old American, real name Phillip Brooks, retired from wrestling in 2014 before making a stunning return on WWE Backstage as an analyst last month.

Bleacher Report tweeted out on Thanksgiving Day last week an image of a wrestling Mount Rushmore featuring 'Nature Boy' Ric Flair, The Rock, Stone Cold and The Undertaker.

And the Twitter account also asked fans to name their four choices of all-time wrestling legends.

CM Punk decided to enter the debate and kept Stone Cold in his Mount Rushmore, but he took the other three WWE legends out of the memorial.

The former WWE superstar revealed that his three other choices would be Japanese legend Mitsuharu Misawa, the 'Macho Man' Randy Savage and Harley Race.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson also took to Twitter last week to share his picks for a wrestling Mount Rushmore.

CM Punk has signed with Fox as part of his appearances on WWE Backstage, but he has refused to close the door on a potential in-ring return.

"So, regardless of what my answer is, there's somebody that's always going to be upset with it," he told WWE Backstage co-host Renee Young.

"As I've said, I've stated I work for Fox. I haven't talked to anybody in WWE.

"It's nothing that I'm actively pursuing or interested in, but I'm 41 years old and I've experienced life where I know to not say no.

"But that's gonna be a bridge that is gonna have to be built and it might take as long as building the Great Wall of China because there are hurdles there."
