Published 07/18/2021, 1:19 AM EDT


When we speak of giants in WWE, the Big Show and ‘Big Daddy Cool’ Kevin Nash immediately come on top of our minds. Over the years, several giants have graced the WWE ring. While some like Nash and Show have gone on to become megastars, not everyone could follow the path of glory.

In fact, many giants were given miniscule roles on-screen may it be WWE or WCW. After all, the only thing that sold was the presentation of these big mighty men.


Despite it all, many giants made a name for themselves in the pro wrestling world. And one immensely over giant has now gone on to name who he thinks are the best giants of all-time.

Kevin Nash reveals his Mt. Rushmore of pro wrestling giants

WWE recently uploaded an excerpt from Stone Cold Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions with Kevin Nash. In the video, Austin asks Nash to tell his Mt. Rushmore of big men in the world of pro wrestling/sports entertainment.

Kevin Nash wasted little time and said, “There’s so many. Andre [The Giant], one. And then 1A would be Giant Gonzalez.” The third name Nash took really confused us, but then he also gave an explanation why, so it all makes sense.

‘Big Daddy Cool’ said, “Really didn’t get the exposure needed, but I gotta go with The Yeti. And I’m going to throw in Master Baster Steel.” For those unaware, Master Blaster Steel is the character Nash made his WCW debut with in 1990. He was one half of the tag team, the Master Blasters with his partner, Iron and later Blade.

Nash’s time as Steel saw him sport an orange-mohawk and strong, chiseled body. However, the run isn’t remembered by wrestling fans. After all, Diesel’s impact in WWE and Kevin Nash’s impact in WCW during the nWo easily overshadows any other work he’s done inside the squared circle.

So there you have it, amid all the great, smooth big wrestlers, Kevin Nash chose some really questionable superstars in his Mt. Rushmore. Except for Andre, the list really looks like a mockery. But to sum it again, Andre The Giant, Giant Gonzalez, The Yeti and Master Blaster Steel make Kevin Nash’s Mt. Rushmore of sports entertainment.

We have only one thing to say, except for Andre The Giant, Kevin Nash doesn’t really have a good eye. And even Stone Cold Steve Austin agrees as he said that Nash may have had one drink already.
