The Rock was the entertainer and Stone Cold was the badass, that's how I'd put it anyway!

Stone Cold was the main draw during the Attitude Era and if it was not for him than neither the Rock or HHH would be main eventers. It was Austin who drew in the PPVs numbers it was Austin who was selling out arenas it was Austin who was crossing over to be a mainstream supperstar on programs like Nash Bridges or Mad TV. Now if he wasn't successful would the Rock get a guest spot on SNL......I don't think so......and HHH would of never get that cameo on Blade 3.

Both men were probably equal when it came to selling merchandise. They were the company's biggest draws back in the Attitude Era and I would imagine both men sold an equal amount of merch every week, month, year or whatever. Much like John Cena and Rey Mysterio now. They are the company's biggest sellers and that is the reason they do loads of work outside the WWE and cater themselves more to kids than adults.

In terms of merchandise I would have to say they were pretty similar. It was Stone Cold who put the WWF on the map, but The Rock carried the company on his back for a little over a year to keep the momentum going that Stone Cold had started. Both of them also carved out the anti hero character for any future stars like John Cena originally was sort of the anti hero with his heel gimmick.
