    I don't know much about Rocca. From what I've read about him, he's a trail blazer who brought wrestling back the forefront of Madison Square Garden. So he obviously drew houses and was even depicted as beating Superman in the comic books. Not too bad.

    Rock, on the other hand, carved his own path as a bonafide worldwide action star, who is known as one of the best wrestlers in the Attitude Era. Rocky also draws huge money, too. Between his numbers in wrestling and his nearly BILLION dollar box office numbers, this should be a win for The People's Champion.

    Even in an actual match, I could see Rock beating Rocca.

    Rocca was hugely popular and drew enormous crowds to MSG, but I think its fair to say he was a territory wrestler. Rock is a genuine global star, and ignoring his exploits outside of the ring, he has consistently proven himself to be incredibly popular with the wrestling audience, in a way that Rocca was able to achieve only regionally. Rock wins here.

    Rock is just too big of a star everywhere to not vote for him here. Rocca was great, but he did not accomplish what the Rock did. Have to vote The Rock into the next round.

    Rocca was a big star back in his day, but The Rock has trancended wrestling and become a global megastar, the type wrestling has only ever seen with Hulk Hogan (and Rock's film career shits all over Hulk's). Rocky was a phenomenon and one of the most charismatic performers of all time, as well as being incredibly smooth in the ring.

    His success speaks for itself, and his resume is almost unmatched.

    Vote for the Brahma Bull.

    Rocca may have transcended wrestling a little way back when but not at the level The Rock has. The Rock may be the most famous name in wrestling history besides Hulk Hogan. The real old guys usually get deserved respect in the first round but it's hard to put someone you never saw over one of the best ever from your generation. Rock wins.
