Gotta be McQueen.

McQueen once beat someone up who called him McQueenie.
McQueen was a righteous dude. He wins with his hands.
I'll call it a draw or maybe give the edge to Newman in a gunfight. He was, after all, Butch Cassidy, and McQueen ain't the Bolivian Army.

youngblood96/viggo martyr/jargon: tRCMB's answer to Vidkun Quisling and Fred Phelps.
McQueen and Newman are both tough as nails, but it doesn't matter because Robert Mitchum would step in and slap the shit out of both of them.
McQueen would win the fist fight. Newman would know this, and get the drop on him first.
Brains over brawn.
Thank you, Denicos.
No-brainer. It's McQueen.
Now Steve McQueen vs. Sean Connery would be a tussle.
Yep. Newman would get in his head.
Mcqueen because he raced motorcycles. Newman only raced cars.

Both were race car drivers. SM said he would have been a hood if not for acting. I think that is hype more than real. Newman, hockey player athlete, healthier. Gotta go wth Newman in 5 rounds.
Guns or knives, Butch?
Probably a stalemate though you gotta give Newman the edge considering his corpse is about 20 years warmer.
The whole time I was comparing McQueen and Newman I was thinking Bronson would beat both their asses at the same time.
"In 1947, McQueen joined the United States Marine Corps and was quickly promoted to Private First Class and assigned to an armored unit. Initially, he reverted to his prior rebelliousness, and as a result was demoted to private seven times. He went UA (Unauthorized Absence) by failing to return after a weekend pass had expired. He instead stayed away with a girlfriend for two weeks, until the shore patrol caught him. He resisted arrest and as a result spent 41 days in the brig.
After this, McQueen resolved to focus his energies on self-improvement and embraced the Marines' discipline. He saved the lives of five other Marines during an Arctic exercise, pulling them from a tank before it broke through ice into the sea. He was also assigned to an honor guard responsible for guarding then-U.S. President Harry Truman's yacht. McQueen served until 1950 when he was honorably discharged."
winner winner....chicken dinner
They were both in The Magnificent Seven
Dead guys can't hit each other.
In their prime? McQueen was more of a badass in real life, Newman was a lot more of a nice and laid back guy than his movie characters.
Newman played a hockey player, so I'll take him.
And also both were in The Great Escape.
False. Or was Newman a bit-part extra?

I was responding to Snake's post regarding McQueen and Bronson both appearing in The Magnificent Seven, and adding that both McQueen and Bronson also were in The Great Escape. Newman was in neither movie. Now go see how many hard boiled eggs you can swallow.
HAte to go against Newman, but Steve McQueen trained extensively with Bruce Lee, he can fight. McQueen by TKO.
The fight would never happen, because Yul Brynner would walk in and scare the shit out of both of them just by staring at them.
