Rock is black and "cool" while Austin isn't main stream cool, both of them are god awful actors though.

I just don't see Austin as playing many different roles, I can only see him as Stone Cold.

Thats and interesting point, not sure how valid it is or not but I like it better than "the rock is a better actor" or even more asinine "he's more charismatic..." etc.

Anyway I think I'm officially retiring from this thread

Was it because of Austin 'taking his ball and going home' (As Undertaker put it)? Was it because he knocked the shit out of Debra?
No

What a noob. To deny Austin was bigger than The Rock in TAE - ultimate cookie cutter noob assertion.

I bet you started watching wrestling in 2009.

Who did people want out of WWF to wrestle Goldberg in a dream match? Austin.
Who did people want out of WWF to wrestler Hogan? Austin.
When did Rock start selling merchandise in earnest? When Austin left TV.

Austin is the second biggest wrestler of all time behind Hogan. Even the dumbest marks can admit this.

It was inevitable. This thread is going to get closed pretty soon if it happens.

There you go,Austin is consider one of the worst actors of all time along with his buddy HHH,John Cena,& the Goat HOgan

and IMO his dialogue delivery is the Worst.

Steve's movie choices are generally straight to DVD action movies.
