• The Undertaker Changes His Mount Rushmore Of Wrestling
During a recent appearance on Kevin Hart’s Cold As Balls, WWF/E Legend The Undertaker was asked who’s on his Mount Rushmore of Wrestling.
Here’s what The Phenom said:
“Andre. Stone Cold. Rock. And I’m going to go with Shawn Michaels.”
This is quite a different answer from what Undertaker gave in 2020, during an interview with ComicBook.
Here’s what he said about his Mount Rushmore of Wrestling last year:
“You got to have [Ric] Flair. You got to have [Hulk] Hogan. Stone Cold [Steve Austin]. That fourth one’s tough.
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.”
Taker also commented on his retirement from in-ring competition:
“In my mind, I wanted to do it and in my heart, I still wanted to do it. But I realized, my body couldn’t do what it used to do. The injuries, I couldn’t even put a number on.
The surgeries, I’ve had upwards of 17/18 surgeries. Everybody feels like they’ve got to give that disclaimer right away, you know, ‘that sh*t’s not real is it?’ Well, it’s real enough to cause 17 surgeries.
People don’t realize that within the course of a match, you’re only a couple of inches away at any given time from something really catastrophic. Those two inches are a really great night or a really bad night.”

• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Attitude Era Superstar “Captain Charisma” Christian (Real name: William Jason Reso) turns 48 today.
Christian debuted on World Wrestling Federation TV in 1998, right at the peak of the famous Attitude Era and was forced to retire in 2014 due to an injury, from which he wouldn’t return until 2021.
While Christian had a pretty good singles career, especially later on during the Ruthless Aggression Era, he’s still mostly considered a Tag Team Wrestling Legend due to his legendary run with Edge from 1998 till 2001, including 7 reigns as WWF World Tag Team Champions.
Between November 2005 and November 2008, he wrestled for Total Nonstop Action! (TNA) under the name Christian Cage, a name he also uses in Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRISTIAN!
