Mount Rushmore Series: Pro Wrestling

This list isn’t long but it is mighty. At the front is Goldberg, who wears his Judaism proudly in his name and publicly. Goldberg was a champion in WCW with arguably the most well-known win strike of the modern era. His original WWE run results in some success but it was not the same as his WCW dominance. In recent years he has reappeared in WWE and has won titles in quick matches. Next to him is Colt Cabana who has in many ways revolutionized the Independent scene and is now a wrestler and producer with AEW. Many Jewish wrestlers credit Barry Horowitz with Jewish representation in wrestling. While others came before win with the name Horowitz and a Jewish star on his trunks who was an important figure. Lastly, Randy “Macho Man” Savage was born to a Jewish mother. In a conversation with his brother Lanny Poffo, the Poffos were proud of mom’s heritage though Savage himself never displayed his Judaism like the others.
