The Rock answered his favorite pro-wrestling question

The former champ took to his Twitter and named three superstars for his version of Mount Rushmore: Hulk Hogan, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, Ric Flair. However, for the fourth position, there was a three-way tie.

For the three-way tie, The Rock chose The Undertaker, Patt Paterson, and Jackie Fargo, and left the fourth place for the WWE Universe to decide.

“Always one of my fav pro wrestling questions Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, Ric Flair. * 4th spot is a three-way tie * Undertaker, Pat Patterson, Jackie Fargo. Dusty & myself are the back of Mt Rushmore droppin’ devastating elbows baby.” The Rock wrote.

The Rock cleverly placed himself on Mount Rushmore as well, and honestly, it feels like the right answer, as he was the pioneer of pro wrestling through the late 90s and the early 2000s.

With his current schedule in Hollywood, it seems impossible for him to return inside the squared circle for a while. However, the current storyline of Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar may come full-circle on WrestleMania 38, and then The Rock might resurface.
