Thierry Henry has been announced as one of the official Premier League Hall of Fame's inaugural inductees after fulfilling his dream to leave a lasting legacy with the way he played.
"One thing is for sure, I wanted to change the game," he said. "There's one thing to lift trophies, there's one thing to lead goals, but did you elevate the position that you were playing in?"
"Wow! I'll try."
Henry was transformed into one of the most prolific strikers in Premier League history, scoring 175 goals in 258 matches and winning four Golden Boots as he helped Arsenal to two titles.
Wright, whom Henry surpassed as Arsenal's all-time top scorer, praised the lasting impact his successor made for the north London club.
"He did blast the way for that goalscoring winger to come inside," Wright said. "Left foot, right foot, pace. A devastating phenomenon coming towards you.
"To score the amount of goals he scored and create the amount of chances he created was testament to the fact that the team and assisting the team was vitally important to him as well."
"Coming up against Thierry Henry and the 'Invincibles', I would say that was the most difficult job in football," Carragher said.
"It was like he was on a motorbike. It was an absolute nightmare to play against him."
Former Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie Redknapp added: "There are certain players that you play against that you stood in a tunnel and you just think, 'We're in trouble today.'
"He got on my nerves to be honest, at times."
Henry and Shearer will feature in a special television programme, which will be broadcast at 18:00 BST this evening on Sky Sports Premier League in the UK, Premier League digital channels and around the world via the Premier League's international broadcast partners.
Kelly Cates will interview the two icons as they look back on their Premier League careers, with some special guests also making an appearance.
A shortlist of 23 additional nominees eligible to join the Premier League Hall of Fame in 2021 will be announced during the show, with fans invited to cast their vote from 19:00 BST and help select the remaining six inductees to the 2021 Premier League Hall of Fame.
Voting will take place on the official Premier League website and app until 9 May, via the dedicated content hub at premierleague.com/halloffame.
