I know, kind of a weird thread but I was just wondering...

Who do you think is the bigger household name in regards to pop culture/mainstream recognition/popularity? Stone Cold Steve Austin or The Iceman Chuck Liddell

Their respective careers are so similar. Mirror images of eachother.

I always looked at Chuck Liddell as the "Stone Cold Steve Austin of MMA"

(put it in this forum, more traffic) :naughty:

To answer the thread, Steve Austin.

In his prime, EVERYBODY knew who Steve Austin was. My cousin who hadn't been born yet knew who Steve Austin was.

Chuck Liddell... ummm... seriously... who outside of MMA and possibly pro wrestling has any idea who he is?

I'd say it's 60/40 for Austin

The only person in MMA more famous than Steve Austin is Joe Rogan.

Nickelback fans know of Chuck. He puts on mean headlocks and sings.

Steve Austin. The guy sold millions of Austin 316 tees back in the day.

Steve Austin by a mile.... my mother knows who Stone Cold is, but has no clue who/what a Chuck Lidell is.....

Everyone knows who Steve Austin is.

I'll even go as far as saying that he's more well known than the "original" Steve Austin. (The Six Million Dollar Man)

If I were to ask someone who Steve Austin is, they'll most likely say "The Wrestler".

If Austin wasn't in some movies recently I would say Liddell because of the commercials he is in and "Dancing with the stars".

Maybe now that Liddell is officially retired, they can get him to make an appearance as a celebrity guest for a match ala Floyd Mayweather.

Steve Austin.... hands down.

My old man who despises wrestling knows who Stone Cold is. That is just a personal experience but I'm sure most of you know someone that shares this view.

Chuck Lidell because wrestling is for fags and everyone watches MMA!

At least as long as I'm on the bandwagon!

Steve Austin without a doubt. I mean certain people knew who Chuck was, but everybody and anybody knew about Austin.

When you've got non-fans of your sport talking about you then you're really well known. I don't know really of any non-UFC fans or wrestling fans talking about Chuck Lidell.

MMA is not a common sport/sports entertainment/whatever it is.

Yeah, UFC probably get a lot of PPV sales, but nobody outside of the MMA world really knows what UFC is.

Christ, who doesn't know what WWE is?

Stone Cold would run Liddel out of his house after drinking a few Steveweisers and hit him with a Stone Cold Stunner. :y:

Why do people cite their parents as a barometer for this? Perhaps the reason they know who certain wrestlers are is because their fucking son is a wrestling mark. Do the math here.

oddly enough, Lidell is probably one of the most successful "crossover" MMA names.

MMA fans love to overinflate the importance of the sport in terms of popular culture.

I don't know. My parents couldn't tell the Rock from Sheamus.

No, I'm pretty sure the former is in the norm.
