Mid-Atlantic Wrestling's Mount Rushmore

Artwork by Mandy Knowles

Our friend Mandy Knowles created a beautiful rendition of what a Mid-Atlantic Wrestling Mount Rushmore might look like, based on our recent series on the only four men who held all five of the Crockett Promotions titles in the 1970s and 1980s.

Those four wrestlers are the "Hawaiian Punch" Ricky Steamboat, Greg "The Hammer" Valentine,  "Nature Boy" Ric Flair, and "Number One" Paul Jones.

For a look at each wrestler on this version of a Mid-Atlantic Wrestling Mount Rushmore and their amazing championship pedigree, check out these earlier posts on what we like to call Jim Crockett's Grand Slam Championship.

Now, we certainly realize that there would be lots of differing opinions on who should make up a true Mid-Atlantic Wrestling Mount Rushmore. I mean, how could one leave off Wahoo McDaniel? Blackjack Mulligan? The Anderson Brothers? The Four Horsemen? You could probably list a dozen more yourself.

Then again, how could you argue leaving off any of the four in this drawing, especially given their amazing title pedigree in Jim Crockett Promotions?

Mandy became a wrestling fan back in 1984 and her favorite wrestler of all time was Andre the Giant. We appreciate her excellent creation of Mid-Atlantic Wrestling's Mount Rushmore!
