• Seth Rollins Reveals His Mount Rushmore Of Wrestling
During a recent interview on 103.5 KISS FM, former Universal Champion Seth Rollins talked about becoming a pro-wrestling fan during WWF’s Golden Era and revealed his Mount Rushmore of Wrestling.
Below are the highlights:
On becoming a pro-wrestling fan during the WWF Golden Era:
“I just loved it from the get-go. They are live-action superheroes. When I was growing up, I was four years old when Hulkamania was running wild. Him, The Ultimate Warrior, Macho Man Randy Savage, Mr. Perfect, Rick “The Model” Martel, Jake “The Snake” Roberts – the characters just sucked me in.
With the pageantry of the whole thing, I was hooked from day one. It was like live-action comic books. It was Spiderman in a book and you could go to a show and pat him on the back as he walked by.”
On who’s on his Mount Rushmore Of Wrestling:
“My Mount Rushmore is probably Hogan, Rock, Flair and maybe Austin.
Shawn Michaels is my favorite wrestler of all-time and I’d love to put him on that Mount Rushmore and Triple H has contributed so much to the longevity of the business.
But from a money-drawing perspective, those are still my top four.”
