WWE superstar Big E has picked his Mount Rushmore of wrestling tag-teams.
The powerhouse is currently on cloud nine after he became Mr Money in the Bank at last night’s pay-per-view extravaganza.
After claiming the briefcase, the 35-year-old now has up to a year to cash in his guaranteed contract for a title match of his choosing at any time or any place.
Before his current run as a singles star he was previously part of the much-loved New Day tag-team.
The faction, which also includes Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods, were recently named as WWE’s greatest ever tag-team.
But the modest former Intercontinental Title holder refuses to pick New Day amongst the elite when asked to name his top four teams of all-time.
Speaking to Vibe & Wrestling, Big E said: “I’m very pretty self-deprecating so it’s hard for me to put us as the greatest tag team of all time.
“I’m very thankful that a lot of people have. I’m very proud of our accolades, I think we’re definitely worthy of being in the conversation.
“As far as the Mt. Rushmore of tag teams I would put the Road Warriors. Man, there’s so many great ones.
“Let’s go Road Warriors let’s go Edge and Christian, let’s go Dudley Boys and for my final tag team let’s go Harlem Heat.
“I loved Harlem Heat as a kid, I thought they were very, they had a lot of swagger, they were very cool, they were in the ring.
“There’s definitely going to be a team that I’ve forgotten and I will feel bad about it but yeah those those are my choices.”
Big E added: “I think there are a ton of incredible tag teams and I think if you’re around my age or a little older, if you’re an adult wrestling fan and you grew up in the 90s or the 80s or even earlier, I think for a lot of people nostalgia is such a big part of their wrestling fandom and I think it’s hard for a lot of people to select a more modern team a team that is currently on television.
“When you think of like the golden era, the golden age of wrestling, you think back to the 90s, you think back to the Attitude Era.

“There are so many teams who are so influential so I think that’s it for a lot of fans.
“I think that’s why they might struggle with The New Day choice, but honestly I’ve seen a lot of positive reception too, a lot of people who really appreciate all that we have done and given as well. So I’m very thankful.
“I’ll just say that I’m thankful for the selection and I’m thankful for all the time I’ve had with Kofi and Woods and I’m really proud of all we’ve done.”
