The question of who was the better beefcake has only gotten more complicated in the ensuing decades, as the vagaries of post-golden-age fame have constantly redefined our understanding of the Schwarzenegger/Stallone divide. In an attempt to map the current state of the great '80s-action-guy debate, we have separated their twin careers into their component parts and scientifically declared a winner.
Who's the best? Arnold or Stallone?
Arnold fans will never accept Sylvester Stallone to be better than Schwarzenegger. And, it's vice versa. However, they both are legends and we should never compare them, instead we should appreciate them equally.
