Butch has unveiled his WWE Superstars Mount Rushmore, which includes some notable names, but also some big names.
In an exclusive interview with GiveMeSport, Butch began by saying that Triple H was in his Mount Rushmore, revealing that “The Game” is actually his favorite wrestler.
In the same breath, Butch also said Shawn Michaels would get his Mount Rushmore, not only because of their work in the ring, but also because of how much they’ve done for him.
For me you should put Shawn Michaels and Triple H in for how much they’ve done for me.
In a similar vein, Butch explained that he also put William Regal in his Mount Rushmore because of how much the fellow Brit has helped him in his career so far.
As his final entrant, Butch named fellow WWE Superstar AJ Styles, who is still on the active roster.
Butch explained that Styles was a favorite of his growing up, so the prospect of a match between the two now that they’re both in WWE should be exciting for the Englishman.
As a fan, AJ Styles was my favorite wrestler. I was obsessed with his work at the time, even before WWE.
Names like The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Bret Hart are excluded, which could raise eyebrows.
However, it’s worth emphasizing that Butch did specify that this Mount Rushmore was one that was personal to him.
He added that he’s not saying Styles, Regal, Triple H and Shawn Michaels are the best wrestlers ever, just that they had the biggest impact on him, either as a professional or as a fan.
During the interview, which will be released on the GiveMeSport-WWE YouTube channel, Butch spoke about several topics, including Vince McMahon’s departure from WWE.
He delved into his feelings about working under Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan as part of the new regime, and whether he would be interested in returning to his old “Pete Dunne” character.
