Everybody has a list of favorite wrestlers in the business but things become different when it’s the Great One The Rock who is listing his favorites in the industry.
The former Champion recently made an Instagram post in which he reflected on his WrestleMania 18 match with another all-time star in The Immortal Hulk Hogan.
In the post, he also listed down his top three ‘greatest of all time’ wrestlers namely Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, and his fellow Attitude Era Star Stone Cold Steve Austin:

Torch passed. Grateful. This past weekend @WWE celebrated the 17th anniversary of what was billed as “ICON vs ICON” to determine who would go down in @WWE history as THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME. It was yours truly, VS The Immortal Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania. What made this match so special was that there was no Heavyweight Championship on the line. Just two men. Just two careers. And 85,000+ of the most insane ELECTRIC crowd I have ever had the privilege to perform in front of. It was almost as if every single person that night in the Toronto SkyDome made up their mind that they would give every ounce of energy they had because they knew this match was only going to be seen once in a lifetime. My friend and childhood hero, Hulk Hogan passed the torch to me on this historic night which decreed me becoming “THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME”, but the truth is – to me – the GOAT are the three men below who paved the way for me and so many others in pro wrestling/ @hulkhogan @ricflairnatureboy @steveaustinbsr I just worked very hard, connected with the audience and caught a break. These GOATS were good enough to recognize I had something to offer and graciously passed the torch. Grateful.
As of this writing, there has been no news of the Rock being involved in any segment at the upcoming WrestleMania PPV but you can never say never.
With Elias announcing a musical segment for the show, there is always a chance that we’ll get a payoff to all the taunts he has sent the Rock’s way in recent time with the former World Champion interrupting his performance.
