The Undertaker Reveals His Mount Rushmore Of Big Men In Wrestling

The Undertaker unveiled his personal Mount Rushmore of big men in the history of professional wrestling.

The Undertaker shared his rankings in an upload on his podcast’s YouTube channel, Six Feet Under with Mark Calaway, offering a fascinating glimpse into his perspective on these legendary figures.

At the fourth spot on The Undertaker’s Mount Rushmore stands Big Van Vader, a powerhouse known for his imposing presence and remarkable agility inside the squared circle. Reflecting on Vader’s impact, The Undertaker emphasised his awe-inspiring athleticism, particularly noting his success in Japan as a testament to his versatility as a big man.

Just I think a classic big man. A big man that could move and I just thought that was the most impressive thing was the big guys that could actually move and be athletes and he was all of that.

Moving up the ranks, The Undertaker positioned Yokozuna at the third spot, praising the late wrestler’s exceptional skills and surprising agility despite his considerable size. With reverence, The Undertaker marvelled at Yokozuna’s ability to defy conventional expectations, describing him as a classic big man who left an indelible mark on the wrestling world.

The things that he could do would defy your own sense of logic and reasoning because your mind would tell you there’s no possible way that a man that size can move and do the things that Yokozuna, could do.

In the penultimate position, The Undertaker placed Kane, highlighting the masked marvel’s versatility and adaptability as a competitor. Drawing attention to Kane’s evolution beyond mere monstrosity, The Undertaker hailed him as a wrestler capable of working seamlessly with any opponent, possessing a range that would be an asset to any wrestling promotion.

If you were going to start a company, if you were going to start your own wrestling company, you want to start out with a Kane on your roster because Kane could work with anybody. He had so much range and learned how to become more than just a monster.

Finally, The Undertaker crowned Andre the Giant as the undisputed king of big men, attributing to him a mythical status and unparalleled influence in wrestling history. With reverence, The Undertaker reminisced about Andre’s larger-than-life persona and unmatched abilities, underscoring his significance as the preeminent attraction in the annals of professional wrestling.

Andre was just a mythical person who travelled around the country. And man, a lot of you didn’t see Andre until the end when his health was in decline. But when Andre was a young man, the things that he could do at the size that he was, he was the biggest attraction in wrestling history.
