I’ve been in and out of pro wrestling for periods over the years so this is just my opinion based on the era’s i watched which was the 90’s with a big emphasis on the mid to late 90s and the Monday night Wars and sporadically since then…

Who is on your Mt Rushmore (overall mens)? Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Steve Austin & The Rock.

Who is your Mt Rushmore (overall womens)? Chyna, Sable, Becky Lynch & Rhea Ripley

Who is on your 'big man' Mt Rushmore? Andre, The Undertaker, Kevin Nash & Yokozuna. Was gonna add Big Show based on his WWE run AND his work before that in WCW as the giant.)

Who is on your tag team Mt Rushmore? The Outsiders, Edge & Christian, Usos & The New Age Outlaws - My original first pick was The Road Warriors/LOD but if I’m honest they were chosen due to their pre-WWF stuff which I based on word of mouth because I didn’t really see them myself. I saw them in WWF and they were largely miss handled by Vince.

Who is your Cruiserweight Mt Rushmore? Eddie Guerrero, Rey Mysterio Jr, Chris Jericho & Ultimo Dragon - Was considering Benoit but f**k him.

Who is your Manager Mt Rushmore? Heyman, Heenan, Chyna & Mr Fuji - Was gonna go with Cornett but I remembered I hate hearing his voice now that he has a podcast.

Who is your commentator Mt Rushmore? JR, King, Michael Cole & Vince.

Who is your stables Mt Rushmore? The nWo, DX, The Shield & The Bloodline.

Who is your Mount Rushmore of Feuds? The Rock v Austin, Bret Hart v HBK, Austin v Vince & Undertaker v Mankind - was tempted to add Hogan/nWo v Sting but the Starcade ending was botched so badly I couldn’t put it ahead of all these others which all contained verified all time classic wrestling matches bar the Austin v Vince… but that changed the industry. If I’m honest, to me… Bret Hart v Steve Austin was closer to making it than Hogan v Sting because they had arguably the greatest match in Wrestlemania history at Wrestlemania 13 in Chicago.

just my opinion…. I reckon I’ll probably remember heaps of names after I post this…

EDIT- switched out Big Show for Yoko and added an extra categor

I know the eras are WWF/E specific but extending the associated time periods to the wider North American industry I would go with.....

Pre-Mania (I will limit this to 1980-1985 as that's really all I've had exposure to)
Bruno, Andre, Ric Flair, Harley Race

Golden Era
Hogan, Flair, Savage, Steamboat

New Generation
Flair, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Sting

Attitude/Monday Night Wars
Austin, Rock, Undertaker, Mick Foley

Ruthless Aggression
Cena, HHH, Edge, Benoit (I'm purely going on wrestling ability here)

PG Era
Cena, CM Punk, Bryan, Chris Jericho

Reality/New Era (Combining these)
Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, Cody Rhodes, Kenny Omega

Post COVID
Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes, Seth Rollins, Will Ospreay

Flair being in three of them is telling and he had a good case for the attitude era too.

Andre The Giant, The Undertaker, Vader, Bruiser Brody
Love the Vader pick and he would be in mine for big men too.

His WCW work in the first half of the 90s beats any run in terms of quality that any of the others had IMO. I would argue he is one of the most underrated workers in general of all time.

Bruiser Brody is an interesting one. By all reports you are right but I just haven't seen enough of his work as he never worked for one of the majors. His death is another of those truth is stranger than fiction stories of professional wrestling.

This is like if people were asked what are their favourite songs & 100% of the responses were just Taylor Swift songs. Lots of flavours & styles out there. Not just most mainstream.

Go on then, hit us with your answers ;)

FWIW, I've only ever watched mainstream. WWF/E, WCW (huge WCW fan growing up), very limited MLW, TNA, NWA and AEW. I watched WSX when that was a thing. Never watched the likes of AAA, New Japan, ROH or any other indy promotion.

I've been casually re-watching 90s WWF and WCW here and there, but I think Binge has ECW so I could watch that as a first time watch (my personal life means I don't get much time to watch alot)

Does Taylor Swift have a discography that spans 50 years like the names in this thread?
