Why wasn't the Rock ever credited for his movies with the WWF/E studios?

Many of you may say that pro wrestling is nothing to do with movies but The Scorpion King was produced by the WWF/E studios.The Rock was chosen over Austin to star in the movie.The Rock wasn't an independent actor at that time,he was a WWF employee under control of Vince Mcmahon.The scorpion king didn't bring much money to the Rock,it brought money to the company,to the WWF,to professional wrestling and if best draw is someone who draws or earns money for the company,the Rock's lead role in Scorpion King should also be taken into account.The film grossed $165 million worldwide,which means that the Rock drew $165 million for the WWF,11 times more than what Austin drew in 1998.

Is this just a "Rock is better than Austin" thread in disguise?
