• Rikishi Reveals His Mount Rushmore Of Wrestling
During an interview with Brandon Robinson of Bally Sports, WWE Hall Of Famer Rikishi revealed his Mount Rushmore Of Wrestling and explained why he picked the names that he picked.
Below is what the former Intercontinental Champion said:
“I definitely have the ‘High Chief’ Peter Maivia up there. I see The Undertaker up there. I see my uncle Afa Sika up there and Ric Flair.
And the reason why is that there’s a lot of other wrestlers that deserve to be there, but when you look at those that I picked there they all have a special unique way of leaving a legacy to be able to teach the younger generation coming up.
They have the access of the younger generation to google and to do their homework on each of these gentlemen, icons, WWE Hall of Famers to be able to learn a thing or two from each person that I just named.
And you talk about strength, you talk about expertise, you talk about talent, you talk about culture, you talk about faith… all in one on that Mount Rushmore with those guys that I just mentioned.”
