I like Clubber Lang, he comes out with some funny lines such as : "Get out of my here! I don't need no has-beens messing up my corner. And you better take that bad look off you face before I knock it off. You wanna jump, jump! Come on! Come on, Creed" and "I'm gonna bust you up!". I'm sure many of you will go with Dolph Lundgren.  -

Has to be Lang for me with Drago a close second. Mr T did a great job as Clubber, some of the lines are classics. Who could forget:

Interviewer: What's your prediction for the fight?
Clubber Lang: My prediction?
Interviewer: Yes, your prediction.
Clubber Lang: Pain!

I have to concur: "No I don't hate Balboa: I pity the fool!" Classic.

Yep, Lang was the best opponent, not least of all because he REALLY made the Italian Stallion work for it. Should they decide to continue the series even further than they have, I wouldn't mind seing him come back one way or another (even though by now he'd be so out of his prime that Mickey's corpse could probably best him).

I've seen him fairly recently, and getting past cancer, he appears pretty much the same, his skins a little lighter, that's about it.  -

Creed all the way ladies and gents. Not only did he have the arrogance, ego and self-confidence one would expect from the Champ, he gave Rocky 2 title shots, was fortunate to win the first and unlucky not to win the second.

Could have easily taken Clubber and Drago in his prime too.

Noms [Cool]

Hi Noms. I like Carl Weathers a lot along with Mr.T. It's too bad though neither had the career they should have.
Apart from the A-Team, for me anyway there isn't much else in terms of films to watch. And apart from Action Jackson and Predator for Carl Weathers I can't really thing of any thing I like with them. And times running out.
To quote Apollo from Rocky III "Y'know Stallion it's too bad we gotta get old."
Have you seen Mr.T's reality show? I don't think we get it here in England.
