Undertaker puts Chris Benoit on his Mount Rushmore of small wrestlers

If you were at all curious to know what The Undertaker talks about on his Six Feet Under with Mark Calaway patreon page, here’s a clip he uploaded to YouTube where Taker names his Mount Rushmore of small guys in wrestling.

By Taker’s definition, anyone who is 6’0” and under is a little dude who can make the list. Let’s see who he came up with:

For those readers who don’t have time to watch the video, here is his Mount Rushmore, with Latino Heat leading the way:

  1. Eddie Guerrero
  2. Kurt Angle
  3. Chris Benoit
  4. AJ Styles

I have to say, I was stunned to see Chris Benoit make this Mount Rushmore, if only for the reason that including Chris on this list is sure to deeply upset some people given Benoit’s double murder-suicide tragedy in 2008.

Here’s exactly what the Dead Man had to say about Benoit’s inclusion on his Mount Rushmore:

“I’m gonna go with The Crippler, Chris Benoit. Again, a wrestling machine. Just could go. He was that guy. He was not a big guy at all, but when he got going, you forgot. You forgot that he was such a small guy in stature. Yeah he was jacked, but he was not that big a dude. But he was like a wolverine in the ring. From bell to bell, you had to have wheels to keep up with him. And the things that he did were solid, strong, made sense. I didn’t get enough chances to work with him. I worked with him a few times and had some really really outstanding matches with him. I did know when I worked with Chris that I needed to put my track shoes on because it was gonna be go time.”
