Longtime TNA/Impact fans will recall the tag team Lethal Consequences, made up of Jay Lethal and Consequences Creed (now known as Xavier Woods).

My question to you is, if you could have the career of either one, which would you take?

Lethal has won many more titles and more prestigious titles as far as singles wrestling, while Creed has had much more mainstream success with the New Day and his various non-wrestling activities.

Lethal's resume:
6X TNA X-Division Champion
1X TNA World Tag Team Champion
2X ROH World Champion
2X ROH World Television Champion
1X ROH Pure Wrestling Champion
1X ROH World Tag Team Champion
Third ever ROH Grand Slam Champion
Third ever ROH Triple Crown Champion
Only man to hold both the ROH World and Television titles at the same time
ROH Wrestler of the Decade Award (2010s)

Creed's resume:
1X TNA World Tag Team Champion
2X WWE (Raw) Tag Team Champion
4X WWE Smackdown Tag Team Champion
Over 2 million Youtube subscribers, minor acting gigs, gaming tournaments, WWE merchandise machine

Obviously both guys have had great careers and they're probably both very well off, but it's not hard to imagine Creed/Woods being the more wealthy with Lethal being the more accomplished in-ring performer.

Creed.
Any given professional wrestler would take financial gain over career accomplishment.
It's not like Lethal is making peanuts. He's been one of the top paid guys in ROH since he got back there and right now ROH is paying pretty well to try to stop bleeding talent to NXT and AEW. Plus he had a six year successful run during the biggest era of TNA.

Both guys could probably retire tomorrow despite being just 33/34.

So I don't know if it's that cut and dry. Creed is definitely more wealthy, but Lethal ain't driving a Camry.

Creed, and it's not even close. Championships mean less and less with each passing day.

Lethal's biggest moment/accomplishment in wrestling is still his TNA promo with Flair.
Lethal had world title matches at Tokyo Dome (Wrestle Kingdom 10) and Madison Square Garden. He worked the CMLL International Gran Prix in front of 16,500 people at the cathedral of lucha libre, Arena Mexico. His promo with Flair is one of the funniest things in the history of planet earth but come on man. How many guys get to say the wrestled on a PPV card at MSG, Toyko Dome, and Arena Mexico?

All of that are check-points in a notebook of a mark. A bunch of WWE/ROH/CMLL low tier never were/never will be guys worked MSG/Arena Mexico/Tokyo Dome. It doesnt mean shit. We are talking memorable moments. Neither of which had Lethal created on those Dome/MSG/AM shows.
And, statistically speaking, if you combine all of the Spike/Twitter/YouTube/other social media views, the Flair/Lethal promo surpasses everything you've mentioned by about 10 million views.

Creed.

As much as I like Lethal and respect his career (I wish that he was in the WWE so more people would see his talent), his success has been strictly only been inside the ring. Well, besides the Ric Flair and Macho Man impersonations in TNA.

Creeds has been all over the place. New Day success, College success, upupdowndown, wrestling in places that Jay Lethal probably hasn't, being on a bigger platform in wrestling, etc.
