I've said it before and I'll say it again, the rock is one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. Not just because of his ring work, but because of his mic skills and ability to improvise and work a crowd. His work with the WWE crowd shines his Hollywood stuff in my opinion.

This alone, was more entertaining than any movie I've seen him in

Wrestling is how a lot of people(myself includes), found out he existed. I personally prefer wrestling by a small margin over his real acting.

Never got into WWE but I can see why people like it. It's pretty much play fighting soap opera. My dad used to watch it wayy back and my grandmother loved it.

But would say actor easily for me. And The Rock who says it how it is in the real world.

When I was a child the Rock was in his prime as a WWF/WWE performer. His charisma outshone all the others'. I don't think he can really replicate that now that he's surrounded by actors, but he still has an immediate likeability that not many actors possess.

He doesn't have any acting talent or ability he is just in there because of his WWE fame.

I knew as soon as I saw the title that there would be at least one person who couldn't help but say "BUT DERE DA SAME!" It gets old.

I'm gonna say tie. Rock in his prime (and even past his prime) will remain one of the most charismatic characters the WWE ever produced, but acting is more sustainable, and I generally like his movies.

Wrestler by far, the most electrifying man in sports entertainment.

My mother has suggested that he should be my father. So, actor it is.

Toughie; while I grew up watching his wrestling I got a lot of glee watching him in Jumanji & Moana, so I'll say actor.

I think he'll be perfect for that, at least if he gets a good director to draw that performance from him. Physically he's excellent for it.

Actor. I had pretty much gotten out of watching pro wrestling by the time he came along.

He's a better wrestler than he is an actor, but I enjoy watching his movies more than I enjoy watching him wrestle.

implying that he wasn't an actor during his time as a wrestler?

anyways hes gotten far more fame and recognition as an actor and occasionally he does a good movie every once in a while. so acting
