I know what you’re going to say, “why compare them, just enjoy.”

You’re right, but as humans we can’t simply ever just sit back and say “you’re both as good as each other”, we’re constantly looking for an outright winner as if the debate isn’t concluded until only one is left standing.

 

Comparison

If you were to compare the two ex-WWE stars. You’d find that the Rock is by far the bigger star. Everything from his net worth to his follower count is far superior.

However looking at the list of movies that Dave has featured in and will star in over the coming 2 years, it’s quite easy to see why people are beginning to ask this question.

So far in terms of high level mentions, Bautista has been a part of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 1 and 2 and Bond Spectre. This is about to be followed by The Avengers Infinity War part 1 and we expect 2. Blade Runner 2049, and he’s rumored to be coming back for the next Bond film in 2019, which may be named “Shatterhand”.

This means that Dave will be a part of 4 of the greatest franchises an actor can ask to be involved with today. Considering his career is still very young in comparison with The Rock’s, it raises two questions.

  1. Is he simply a better actor?
  2. Did the Rock layout the blueprint for gigantic and muscular men from the WWE to be taken seriously in Hollywood?

 

Highest Paid Actors

The Rock has been a dominant figure on the highest paid actors list for a few years now.

But with such a line-up of high profile movies for Dave Bautista in the next 2 years, it’s pretty likely that we’ll see him move near the top 10 by the end of 2019, especially since many of the movies he’s doing will be repeat business such as being recalled for the new Bond. This only guarentees a larger contract because it means the actor is in demand.

 

Leading Roles

One thing Dave is still lacking in, is a stand alone leading role, something that The Rock is familiar with in multiple movies.

However with such consistent performances and public demand for Bautista to keep returning to our screens, it’s surely only a matter of time before Dave makes the transition and becomes one of Hollywood’s elite actors.
