Seth Rollins’ time in promotions such as Ring Of Honor certainly helped him hone his craft before making his way to WWE. Rollins’ current obnoxious heel character never fails to annoy fans. On top of that, Rollins really doesn’t do scripted promos as such, just like Roman Reigns. All that being said, you would think that Rollins’ picks for his personal Mount Rushmore would consist of his own company’s stars.
WWE Superstar Seth Rollins was a recent guest on The Pat McAfee Show, where he discussed the importance of people sketching in the wrestling profession. The former WWE Champion revealed the four wrestlers he believes had the greatest impact on the industry’s bottom line.
Rollins chose four of the greatest wrestlers of all time, one of whom he has previously shared the ring with. From an in-ring perspective, Seth Rollins concentrated on Mount Rushmore of wrestlers. He chose wrestlers solely on the basis of what they can do inside the ring, and the former Shield star even made a joke about Steve Mongo McMichael.
In our business, which is the entertainment business, money-drawing is the biggest thing. So if we’re talking there, you gotta start with Hogan. You gotta put Cena there, Rock and Austin. Top four. Shawn Michaels, Eddie Guerrero, Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart. This is a controversial one. Did you say Mongo? Did somebody drop a Mongo? I will not discriminate against Steve Mongo McMichael. A legend. An absolute legend, an absolute legend. Not gonna make this Mount Rushmore. If you want to make a Mount Rushmore of former NFL stars that crossed over to professional wrestling, Mongo number one. Mongo number one, alright.
When it came to his fourth pick, Seth Rollins went with someone who is still active in the sport. He also selected to go with an AEW wrestler.
Number four, controversial pick because he’s still active, Bryan Danielson. I actually think in-ring he’s one of the greatest of all time. And I think when it’s all said and done, he’ll be up there with the guys.
Rollins will face Brock Lesnar, AJ Styles, Austin Theory and Matt Riddle as they all compete for Bobby Lashley’s WWE Championship on February 19th at the WWE Elimination Chamber event in Saudi Arabia. We will have to wait and see whether Rollins will end up winning the match or not.
