The Undertaker Has Named His 'Mount Rushmore Of Professional Wrestling Greats'
The Undertaker, real name Mark Calaway, has been with Vince McMahon's promotion since 1990 and is one of wrestling's biggest icons.
But in an interview with ComicBook.com, 'The Deadman' revealed that his own personal Mount Rushmore would include Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin and Andre The Giant.
"You got to have [Ric] Flair. You got to have [Hulk] Hogan. Stone Cold [Steve Austin]. That fourth one's tough," the 55-year-old began.
"It could be Harley [Race]. It could be Dusty [Rhodes]. It could be Bruno [Sammartino]. And I base that on contributions to the business.
"Not so much if they were a great worker or this or that, but... Oh, I know my fourth, it's Andre [The Giant]. I don't know why I forgot Andre. So yeah, it would probably be Flair, Hogan, Stone Cold and Andre."
Most fans would likely place Undertaker on their own Mount Rushmore list and while the seven-time world champion is honoured, he explained why he left himself off his own list.
"Well, obviously I'm flattered and honored and my legacy is what it is and I guess that's another one of those conversations of who's better, [Michael] Jordan or LeBron [James]?"

"In that conversation, I always put Kobe [Bryant] in too. I'm flattered and obviously I know what my contributions to our industry is, but I think when you look at those four guys and I think they really captivated.
"I think Flair was the standard and then obviously when WWF took off, it was Hogan that was at the top, and then we had the drop off. And then when it came roaring back, it was Stone Cold. And then Andre is just the 8th Wonder of the World.
"So I'm humbled and honored to even be in the conversation, but I think those are my four."
Taker's last match came at WrestleMania 36 when he defeated AJ Styles in the critically acclaimed Boneyard Match.
It's unknown when or if he'll ever wrestle again but he is reportedly tied to the WWE for the foreseeable future.
The Texas-native reportedly signed a massive 15-year deal last year which if he serves fully means he'll have nearly 45 years of service with WWE.
