AAADRIIAANNN!! — The Crazy Story Of How ‘Rocky’ Almost Never Got Made
I can’t imagine living in a world where Sylvester Stallone’s legendary Rocky movies don’t exist. As a canon, they’re the most iconic underdog story of all time. It’s the ultimate David vs. Goliath tale — Ivan Drago, Apollo Creed, Clubber Lang, and Mason Dixon, and Thunderlips all *should* have kicked Rocky’s ass (and in some cases they did) but he always found a way. Those damn movies give us sad Philadelphia sports fans a tiny glimmer of hope to continue rooting for our sad sports teams in thick and thin.
Because of Hollywood business and politics, Sylvester Stallone’s blockbuster masterpiece never got made. The story how above.
