It is a common phrase uttered by wrestling commentators when a wrestler wins a world title: they’ve reached the top of the mountain.
It is easy to compare the two in the way. Like with most sports career, wrestlers need to start at the bottom. They need to train and work hard in order to scratch and claw their way up the card.
Eventually they will get chances at reaching the submit of their respective promotion. Whilst they might not be successful first time, the best of the best will reach the top of the mountain so to speak when they win their first world championship.
Whilst most greats of the wrestling business can list a WWE title run under their list of accomplishments, this isn’t always the case.
One of the icons of wrestling’s rise -Roddy Piper – has just the one singles run as Intercontinental Champion on his CV. Even one of the finest characters to ever grace a ring in Jake Roberts has never even held gold.
