Re: Ranking the Rocky Opponents

I'll just go with the main fighters.

1 Creed, awesome as both a enemy and a friend.
2 Drago- awesome as well.
3 Clubber Lang- it's fucking mr t
4 Mason Dixon, i really like the movie but not him so much.
5 tommy gunn-yeah.

Re: Ranking the Rocky Opponents

Drago - Guy's a killer. He truly is terrifying, even now Lundren is scary. He's the only Rocky actor still in that type of shape.
Apollo - He's the man. He beat Rocky, passed the torch and then set up Drago as the biggest monster in sports. It was great long term style storytelling.
Lang - Mr T being a badass. Imagine Tyson with mic skills.
Dixon - To me he was just there.
Gunn - The fight was alright, but it just wasn't Rocky.

Here's a couple questions. Who beats who in their prime?
Creed vs Drago? I ask because Apollo may have lacked Rocky's power but he had speed and foot work. Would he have stood a chance or not?



One-Two, Nicki!
Go Hard!

Re: Ranking the Rocky Opponents

Tyson did have mic skills.

And Drago still beats Creed even in Apollo's prime. The man is just a monster. 2000 psi punch.

Sans roids Drago might be on the level of Clubber Lang or less.

Old Apollo was beyond his physical prime, so there'd be a good chance he would put up a fight in his younger days.

Which is just pathetic in itself. I wish they made that a little bit MORE realistic. I mean if he landed one punch straight at Rockys face (which he did numerous times), he'd of killed him. It's my one major gripe with IV

Not everyone is basing it on wins. Some are just on the character and entertainment, as several of us stated already.
