Because Rock is more main stream than Austin, he's cool, handsome and black. Something which there isn't a lot of in Hollywood so he smashed himself a corner of the market. Where as Austin was this redneck hero who were 10 to the dozen in the US at the time.

Lol at "the rock is a better actor"

Someone said it....It's because the rock has a more diverse look and appeal...

The only role I've ever seen rocky do with any sort of range was in Be Cool and it was a small part...he's more or less the same character in every movie wether its a kid movie or a comedy or an action flick

They are both type casted like hell and its not hard to see why

There's a couple of reasons why Rock made it in Hollywood while Austin didn't

1. Even if Austin is the bigger star in wrestling, that doesn't translate to Hollwood. I don't know how you put 2 and 2 together.

2. The Rock has more charisma than Austin.

3. The Rock has movie star good looks, and Austin has your typical redneck look. Not an insult, that's just the way it is. That's another thing, The Rock has always been more mainstream friendly than Austin, and this probably helped him in the long run.

4. The Rock can actually act. It's like someone else said, most of Austin's roles are still him playing Austin. The Rock has shown more range and the ability to act at a higher level than Austin. Kids' movies, comedies, action flicks are all in The Rock's resume. Can't say the same for Austin.

5. The Rock seems to want it more. I'm not saying Austin isn't trying either, but probably not as hard as The Rock. Of course this is just speculation on my part, but I think The Rock's willingness to do different roles in different genres has widened his appeal and his audience, thus gaining him a bigger fanbase.
I agree, the Rock proved he could some what act and was pretty funny when he did SNL.
I could never see Austin doing as well on SNL as the rock did.

Rock going into kid movies didn't make him big, it helped but it didnt make him. It made him a lot of money. Rock's a better actor and was more determined to make it in acting than Austin. Plus, he has the look. Thats not a knock on Steve, just how it is. Your just bashing the fuck out of Rock irrationally here.
You really think Witch Mountain and the toothfairy are good movies? Name me one kids movie the rock did that you thought was good? And yes the kids movies are what made him. Those are the movies that made him the most money

The Rock can act and play multiple rolls. Austin can really only play the bad ass and his acting skills are worse than Hogan's.

Because Austin is too one dimensional, he can only play the 'tough guy' act, can you imagine Austin in the tooth fairy? etc

The Game Plan was pretty damn good.
