Sylvester Stallone: 'Hulk Hogan Really Beat Me Up In Rocky Iii'

Sylvester Stallone still shudders at the
memory of receiving a beat down from wrestling icon Hulk Hogan in Rocky Iii - because his co-star didn't realise he had to fake his punches.

Stallone admits no one has hit him harder than Hogan, real name Terry Bollea, did as they filming the 1982 boxing movie - and one scene left the actor a shattered mess cowering in the corner of a boxing ring.

He tells Vh1's Big Morning Buzz Live Tv show, "He killed me. He beat me up badly... He didn't get that he's supposed to pull his punches (back)... and we took four or five (guys) right into the ambulance right to the hospital with broken collarbones and this and that.

"The hardest I was ever hit was by him... I (still) have visions of it... I'm in the corner and Rocky's been stunned... I'm laying there... and I see this guy running... and he comes down and hits me and I'm laying on the ground saying, 'Don't shove me, don't roll me over... I know there's a bone sticking up here with a vein... and part of my heart.' Oh my God. I said, 'I know I'm shattered'."

Hogan recently apologised for hurting Stallone in the film when he appeared on the Vh1 show, but the movie star insists that's not enough.

He joked, "How about my turn? I get a stepladder..."

Now Online: PRIME Wrestling TV #174: Dead Wrestling Society vs. Gregory Iron & Zach Gowen

Watch Online Here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igjohH4e0Zc

Original Airdate: January 27th, 2013

PRIME TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: KRIMSON & KIRST vs. GREGORY IRON & ZACH GOWEN
It's been over six months since Kirst nearly powerbombed Gregory Iron into retirement, rendering him unconscious, concussed, and nearly even worse off than that. Since then, Kirst has gotten a euphoric high off of reliving the injuries he's given Greg and countless others, including Greg's former best friend Hobo Joe, whom Kirst has taken to dressing like to further his sick mental games. Iron & Zach Gowen are fighting for pride, redemption, and championship glory. Fighting for the memories of every tag team and career that the Dead Wrestling Society has destroyed, can Iron & Gowen finally put a stop to DWS' strangehold over tag team wrestling? Or will Kirst finish what he had started this past summer and end another storied tag team? This war will finally come to an end, with PRIME Champion Johnny Gargano as guest ringside commentator as he prepares for Krimson February 16 on iPPV at "Pressure Rising".

PRIME TV TITLE MATCH: FACADE vs. "True Talent" BOBBY SHIELDS
Last month, with his foot in a walking boot due to a broken bone suffered in a recent match, Facade still limped to the ring to address his fans and promise to make it up to all disappointed followers who couldn't watch him in action. This caught the ire of Bobby Shields who accused Facade of milking and outright feigning his injury for sympathy. An injury, in Shields' eyes, that doesn't compare to his own pain... namely, his haircut. When Facade & the fans balked at the statement, Shields snapped and levied one of the most vicious beatings on Facade in recent memory. This week, Facade is cleared to compete and the two will battle for the TV Title! Who will walk out injured physically, and who will walk out with damaged pride?

MEGALOMANIACS IN SIX-MAN TAG ACTION
In three weeks, Marion Fontaine, Rickey Shane Page & Jeremy Madrox enter six-man tag warfare against M-Dogg 20 Matt Cross & two mystery partners. If the 'Maniacs win, Vic Travagliante becomes PRIME Commissioner. If Matt Cross wins on behalf of Team LaBar, Vic leaves PRIME forever. But this week the huggable, loveable Bryan Castle has recruited two young partners looking for an opportunity and their work is surely cut out for them. How solidified is this trio as a team? Are they ready for Pressure Rising? We'll get our answers this week.

PLUS: Exclusive footage of Vic Travagliante visiting one of Justin LaBar's offices, we'll hear from The Sons of Michigan, plus its all the latest hot news in the Pressure Rising Control Center!

Hurricane Helms, Molly Holly, Christina Von Eerie, Adam Pearce, & Necro Butcher will all be apart of the event and signing autographs.
