The Undertaker retired back in 2020 but he still makes his rounds on podcasts and shows. Recently, the WWE legend was asked to name his Mount Rushmore of wrestlers.
His list makes a ton of sense as many wrestling fans probably wouldn’t argue with his choices. However, one name stands out among the rest.
During a sit-down interview with Ariel Helwani, The Undertaker was asked who his Mount Rushmore is for the WWE. Here are his top four wrestlers of all time.
The Undertaker finally names his Mount Rushmore.

Andre the Giant and Ric Flair make the most sense, right? From there, Stone Cold Steve Austin is a great choice (that’s the era I grew up with) and then there’s Hulk Hogan.
I’m not saying Hogan doesn’t deserve to be on the WWE Mount Rushmore. It’s just a bit odd to hear The Undertaker say that.
Especially considering their known history. It all started back in 1991 when The Undertaker and Hulk Hogan faced off against each other for the first time.
Hogan claimed he received a head injury at the end of the match, but The Undertaker called foul, per Sportskeeda. Here is the ending of that wrestling match that started their feud.
According to Sportskeeda, The Undertaker called out Hulk Hogan over the incident.
“I was like, ‘Terry, I watched it back, your head never hit!’ He’s like, ‘Brother, what it was is you had me so tight, that when we came down, I had nowhere to move, and that’s what jammed my neck. I couldn’t move at all.’ At that point, then I was like, ‘Okay,’ I kind of realized I know what you’re all about, and that’s all I needed,” said The Undertaker.
Of course, more things happened down the road, as clearly, their relationship was never all that great.
Despite all that, The Undertaker named Hulk Hogan on his Mount Rushmore of wrestlers. That’s not something most people would do so for that, the WWE legend deserves even more respect.
