Don't forget Austin has been on ESPN quite a bit over the last five years. They've seemed to have adopted him as their official wrestling diplomat.You are forgetting a big one...one that has had two #1 best-selling books.

As a writer myself, I can assure you that at least in book circles Mick Foley is a household name. I would venture to say not as much as listed above, but moreso than Chyna, Sable or Jake "The Snake".

Also ahead of those three, I would have to put Goldberg and the nWo. The nWo especially considering every major sport at the time had athletes wearing the shirts and whatnot.

Foley, of course! Okay, I officially give up on my little list now... just missing way too many....

Seriously, out of any wrestlers who have had cross-over pop culture success, Foley's the one I respect the most. Not only was his first book the best I've ever read -- wrestling or otherwise, and I do read a LOT of books -- but the way that he acheived mainstream success was commendable.

I believe he is busy filming a re-make of the 70's movie "Walking Tall".

If CRZ doesn't get a cameo in this, it's a f*cking CRIME.

Just for empirical data, I asked my class (12 30-50 yr old men) if they knew who these 4 men were

2 knew who Randy Savage was
1 knew Steve Austin
4 knew who the Rock was
all 12 knew Hulk Hogan




We'll be back as soon as order is restored.....

On Raw, Bischoff mentioned that you can't jump from Raw to Smackdown and vice versa, anymore, unless its a trade. Randy Orton and Hurricane jumped to Raw last night. So who do you think could go to Smackdown this week. My pick is Sheldon Benjamin.
