The Rematch

Like most true Americans, I grew up loving Rocky IV. And like most people who watched it as kid, the match between Apollo Creed and Ivan Drago was the first really traumatic instance of my life. Even now that I am two decades older, every time I see the movie on TV, I still secretly pray for a different outcome. I've suggested before, only pretending to kid, that maybe Sylvester Stallone could go back, bring together Carl Weathers and Dolph Lundgren again, and film an alternate cut to finally give the fans some peace.

While that may never happen, Weathers and Lundgren were finally reunited for a rematch (of sorts) on the third season premiere of The Jace Hall Show. YouTube user OfficialRob2KProds has helpfully cut together the relevant portions for viewing here. You can also watch the full episode at IGN, although I wouldn't really recommend it.
