Stallone also claims that because of it there were three stuntmen during filming that were sent to the hospital:
Another flashback and another reason why it's not such a great idea to always do your own stunts! I met Terry Bollea aka THUNDERLIPS aka HULK HOGAN In the very early 80s when I was directing Rocky III. AT 6feet 7 and 295 pounds with 24 inch biceps ! He was an amazing athlete! Incredibly powerful. I remember a violent move where he threw me into the corner , charged across the ring like an ENRAGED bull and leaped so amazingly high Above me,that his shinbone actually came down giant tree on my collarbone , and I tumbled to the floor. I was afraid to look at my shoulder for about 10 minutes ... I said "don't roll me over , don't move me, " because I was sure there was bone protruding through my upper chest ! Of course there wasn't but I have never felt such a mind numbing pain from a massive hit before or since that day! HULK Just didn't know his own strength. Believe it or not when he jumped into the audience to fight with the stuntmen , three of them had to be treated at the hospital. Great guy, great friend, his presence made the Film very very special. HULK , if you're reading this, it was a privilege to be mangled by such a gentleman.
- Shinsuke Nakamura was recently interviewed by The Orlando Sentinel and when asked about a possible transition from WWE NXT up to the main roster at WrestleMania 33 he had the following to say:
“I hope. I hope. I want to go to the next [level],” Nakamura said, after a long 15-second pause. “If I can wrestle at WrestleMania, that’s going to be awesome. I… really… want… WrestleMania… I want to wrestle at the biggest wrestling show on the Earth.”- As noted, Triple H and Finn Balor will be returning to action this weekend for a pair of RAW live events.
