Honestly surprised he didn’t say Triple H given how much of a company man he is.

Fair list anyway. I’d put Flair over Cena. The push of Cena ran off a lot of 18-35 fans.

I've never seen a more insecure fan base than Rock fans. It's never Austin fans that start this debate. They already know where Austin's prowrestling legacy stands.
That's because Austin is never left off GOAT/Rushmore discussions. Rock sometimes is which makes fans baffled especially when Cena is picked.

Rock was on top longer than Steve and came back and had big programs with Punk and Cena. Why does anyone care about Seth Rollins irrelevant opinion anyway? Was Shannon Moore not available or something? Seth Rollins is a nobody.
Dude, you’re just some nobody on the internet getting mad because a top talent of a big wrestling promotion is giving his valid opinion about who’s in his Mount Rushmore, and it obviously frustrates you considering the fact that a whole bunch of folks actually DO care about what this man thinks in their free time; which is made evidently clear by this active thread.

Lol. Is Kentucky gonna come and say Rollins should've said he was better than Rock and Stone Cold or something? Or maybe he already has? I wouldn't know.

Seth is very humble.

Is he better than Austin and Rock? In my opinion yes.

Just my take.

The Rock took the WWF to heights never before seen, Smackdown was named after him.
The ratings in 2000 with Rock were MEGA POWERFUL without Austin there for most of the year. Ratings went down in 2001 when he went on vacation, upn threatened to cancel smackdown in 2002 when he left in the Summer. Rock had the highest buyrate for a WM ever 17 and 28.

And lets not get to his movie career that has nothing to do with Wrestling, but it still mops the floor with Stunning Steve Austin.
I never liked this argument because you could make the case that the WWF was going to reach those heights if Austin was on top, and it certainly looked to be heading that direction from the way things were going. The momentum shifted in the WWF's favor and it was all uphill from there.

Another thing that needs to be pointed out is that the Rock probably never would have taken that spot had Austin not been injured. What you can also argue is that the Rock arguably had a better roster to work with during his time on top compared to the Rock who had much less to work with in 1998. Another important factor to consider is that WCW was still legitimate competition at that point, since that was when Goldberg was at his peek in terms of drawing power. Austin had far more working against him and had less to work with.

Whether people want to admit it or not, The Rock benefited from Austin's rise in popularity, and capitalized on the momentum Austin created. That isn't taking anything away from the Rock. No one else not named Austin would have drawn the numbers he did. My point is that his numbers at the top were completely circumstantial. Austin on the other hand brought WWF out of the ground and made them the "it" company again. He did that on his own.

So humble that at the airport, he said "Don't you know who I am?"
Oh, I see that you’re still pissed off over one of your disliked talents existing peacefully several years later.

Plus, Cena and Bruno are not even in Rock's level.
Since it's about WWE's mount rushmore Seth is actually fairly correct.

1st Bruno (debatable with Hogan)
2nd Hulk (debatable with Bruno)
3rd Cena
4th Austin (debatable with Rocca)

Both Austin and Rock were not long enough on top though that is the reality. Instead of Austin you could actually put Argentina Rocca in 4th place since he was the first big superstar at Capitol Wrestling (before they became WWWF) in the late 50's and early 60's while tag teaming with Perez.

lol. Since when longevity = impact ?? If we're talking longevity then guys like Kane, Big Show, Taker, and Orton should be on the list before Cena, Hogan, and Austin.

Argentina Rocca?... Other than holding the WWWF belt for 4yrs during the territories era(a time when wrestlers used to wrestle once a month), his impact wasn't as big as Hogan, Rock, or Austin. Plus his WWWF run(as a top star) lasted less than a decade.

Any list that don't have Hogan, Rock, and Austin on it is invalid.

We are talking about the biggest draws (and thus the most important wrestlers) in WWE history and Seth Rollins is pretty much correct. And regarding Rocca the belt he held wasn't what today is the WWE championship but another belt which doesn't matter anyway though because Rocca was so successful and a star as he was one of the very first high-flying wrestlers in prowrestling history.

How the fuck do you people put Cena a wrestler that drove fans away by the millions on Mt. Rushmore? It baffles my mind.

The formula is largely based on matches that drew 10,000 fans (and an extra point if topping 20,000, a third point if topping 30,000, etc).
