Sting recently named his Mt. Rushmore of pro-wrestling: Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, The Rock, and Steve Austin. Who do you name for yours? I feel that the 1980s pro-wrestling boom was a very significant part of the industry’s history, to the extent that it set the foundation for the success that it has today. So I name four people who in some way represented the companies that were the Big 3 at the time (WWE, JCP, and the AWA): 1- Hulk Hogan 2- Ric Flair 3- Sgt. Slaughter 4- Vince McMahon
