Legendary Rival Arnold Schwarzenegger vs Sylvester Stallone's Career Showdown: Who's The Best?

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.

How much money the two stars' films have grossed?

Sylvester Stallone, with a lifetime gross of $1.8 billion are much behind than Arnie. Schwarzenegger grossed $1.7 billion with a significantly smaller pool of movies — his first non-Hercules leading role came in Conan the Barbarian, six years after Stallone broke big with Rocky, and Schwarzenegger was on sabbatical in Sacramento for most of the '00s. Schwarzenegger grossed almost as much, with fewer movies and in significantly less time, meaning his average is much higher.

Obviously, Sylvester Stallone. It was a peak time for SLY. Especially, he got all limelight because of his role in Rocky.

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.
