Yesterday, after the news started spreading across the internet like wildfire, colleague and long-time friend of Carl, Sylvester Stalone, turned to Instagram with an emotional message! “Carl Weathers was such an integral part of my life, my success, everything about it, I give him credit,” said Stalone. “Because when he walked into that room, and I saw him for the first time, I felt greatness,” he continued.

It’s worth mentioning that Carl appeared in the first four movies of the series and added incredible value to its success. So, Stallone also said, “I never could have accomplished what we did with Rocky without him.” Stallone emphasized Carl’s image as he remembered the late actor, claiming he was brilliant. “He was absolutely brilliant, his voice, his size, his power, his athletic ability. But more importantly, his heart, his soul. It’s a horrible loss!
