Sylvester Stallone still has a case of Hulkamania.
The "Rocky" and "Rambo" star, whose popular posts on social media range from workout videos to behind-the-scenes pictures from his movies, is a constant presence on Instagram, and one of his latest posts is a doozy for nostalgia fans.
As Yahoo Entertainment reports, Stallone posted a photo of himself and wrestling legend, Hulk Hogan, taken from the set of “Rocky III” that proves that, while Stallone has been a workout master, in comparison, Hulk Hogan was a really, really large man.
It was Hogan’s film debut, and he was already much taller than Stallone -- 6’6” and 5’8” respectively. The photo shows that while filming their fight scene, Hogan actually stood on a raised platform to make him appear even taller. But even taking that into account, Hogan looks about another half size wider than Stallone, who was well into his legendary workout regime at that point.
Stallone, 75, captioned the picture with, "Might as well let another secret out of the bag before the release of ‘Rocky IV’.”
Earlier this year, Stallone posted a photo of himself lifting the 310-pound Hogan while shooting "Rocky III," and praised him as a "great athlete," saying he "threw the straightest punches I've ever encountered." Quite the compliment from Rocky.
Stallone must’ve stumbled on the Hogan photo while doing research for the Director’s Cut of “Rocky IV,” which is due to have a limited theatrical release in November.
