The Mount Rushmore of Wrestling according to Seth Rollins

Faced with the question that wants an answer regarding the four favorite characters in the history of Wrestling, many athletes have often felt difficulty in talking about what's a very difficult choice in a discipline, which like any art form it contains a multiplicity of not indifferent genes.

Just this question, in the last few hours, was asked to Seth Rollins in Los Angeles, where he is for some pre-Super-Bowl interviews. The question was asked by none other than Pat McAfee, SmackDown color commentator, and the Messiah decided well to give eight names, divided by audience hold and quality in the ring, often sidelined by WWE in the past.

Seth Rollins' choices

Seth Rollins believes The Shield should be considered the greatest WWE group of all time. Rollins performed alongside Jon Moxley, then known as Dean Ambrose, and Roman Reigns on WWE’s main roster between November 2012 and June 2014.

The popular trio reunited multiple times between 2017 and 2019 before Moxley left WWE and joined AEW. In the first section, the former member of the Shield mentioned Hulk Hogan, John Cena, The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin, but Bruno Sammartino and Ric Flair would also be a good quote according to him.

In the second, Shawn Michaels, Eddie Guerrero, Bret Hart and Bryan Danielson were chosen. The final choice really contains a great story, considering the great past between the two both at the match level in the independents and in the majors, which allowed him to travel the world together, definitely delighting every fan of the discipline.

The two, together, have always shown great chemistry in the ring, given and considered the wide technical rate that distinguishes them from many other wrestlers. The two are in fact in our opinion among the best performers of the modern era and their grip on the public must also thank this, in addition to a great passion and professionalism that has allowed them to also achieve great results, in which they have been embraced by every fan present in the stadium or who cheered on their victories from home.

And you, what do you think of Seth Rollins' Mount Rushmore? Do you think it was spot on or do you disagree with him? Let us know in the comments, stating who you would put in these important four places, also indicating your emotions related to each wrestler mentioned.

While The Shield’s dominance ended in June 2014, The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods) formed in July 2014. They are now 11-time WWE Tag Team Champions and hold the record for the longest male tag title reign in WWE history (483 days).
