The Undertaker has revealed who he would immortalise on a Mount Rushmore of professional wrestling.
In his latest out of character interview, The Undertaker was the most recent guest on Kevin Hart’s Cold as Balls YouTube show. In the series, comedian and actor Kevin Hart conducts interviews with celebrities while both of them are shivering in ice baths.
On latest episode, The Undertaker spoke about his career, why he decided to retire, and revealed who he would want on his Mount Rushmore of professional wrestling.
The ‘Phenom’ named Andre The Giant, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, and The Rock as the men he would immortalise in stone. He has had memorable feuds with three of the wrestling legends, but was never able to step into the ring with Andre The Giant.
When Undertaker arrived in WWE in late 1990, Andre The Giant’s health was in decline and he was appearing in the ring less and less, so the dream match never happened despite it being something Andre wanted to do.
Speaking on WWE’s The Bump, the Undertaker said that, while there will never be another Andre, he believes that AJ Styles’ ‘Personal Collosus’, Omos, is as close as WWE have come.
“I’ll say this, there will never be another Andre The Giant but [Omos] is as close as we’ve come. That’s a big statement but he’s special. Omos is special and the big thing for him to know and to realise is that he is special and that he’s different from everybody else.”
“The average size of the wrestler, in general, is smaller than it was you know, so here’s this guy who is incredibly athletic and he’s incredibly huge – he’s just a big, big, strong man. It’s important for him that he protects that. He and I have had a couple of conversations about what he should do and what he shouldn’t do – if things get too heated, call me.”
Omos has already made an impact in WWE since joining in 2019, first with his appearances on the short-lived Raw Underground segments, and more recently teaming with AJ Styles. The duo quickly saw success as a team, defeating New Day at WrestleMania 37 to win the WWE Tag Team Championships and enjoying a 133 day reign before being defeated by RK-Bro – Randy Orton and Riddle – at SummerSlam on August 21st.
