It isn't fair to do comparison with a world he doesn't belong, he should be compared with people who are great actors, he's not a wrestler anymore, he's an actor, a fake actor, like Piper at his time, or Hogan.
The Rock has surpassed every wrestler ever on a mainstream platform, ever. It's no argument anymore.
Moana; Nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated
Voted Sexiest Alive by people ( as superficial and dumb as it is, that shows how huge he is to mainstream media; Actors like Depp, Pitt, Washington have been deemed that title. In fact the Rock is the second Black man to be given that title; So white media has even caught on to him, which shows EVEN MORE how much of an icon he is. He transcends race)
Highest Paid Actor in Hollywood : http://www.businessinsider.com/the-r...d-actor-2016-8
Were Hogan or Piper the highest paid actors on the planet at one point? Prove it.
He's resurrected dead franchises; Whether people like it or not, he helped out the Fast and Furious franchise with his Hobb's character in Fast Five; now he gets equal billing and did so by Fast Six, along with Vin and the late Paul Walker.
People question his box office pull without the Fast franchise;
San Andreas, with the Rock getting the main headliner, the only headline, opens at number one in the box office and grosses 450+ worldwide and is one of the biggest hits of the summer.
Ballers? 3 seasons and counting on HBO. The Rock is an executive producer on the show and stars in it and has received acclaim for his role, despite the actual show getting mixed reviews.
NAACP award for entertainer of the damn year beating out a global music force of nature, BEYONCE, who can be argued as the biggest solo star on the planet.
His production company is MAKING A PRO WRESTLING MOVIE AND TEAMING WITH THE WWE. HE'S USING HIS STAR TO HELP THE WWE. HE STILL COMES BACK TO THE DAMN COMPANY DESPITE ALL OF THIS. He literally doesn't need the WWE and hasn't since 2002-2003 when he was still in the damn company.
He has apps that inspire people to workout and make something of themselves.
TV SHOWS, Commercials, Movies, Oscar Nominated Movies, etc
He's been adding accolades since 1999 while he was in the WWE.
And you just said he's merely RODDY PIPPER OF THIS TIME? This dude is Hulk Hogan's star power on STEROIDS (insert rock hater joke about Rock using roids) right now. Anyone that doesn't give credit is just filled with hate and might need to look within at some of their own problems.
Don't be surprised if the Rock becomes a billionaire within 10-15 years.
Rock haters are on suicide watch.
