John Pollock, Wai Ting and the returning Ed Boxler conclude their Rocky retrospective with a review of Creed II (2018) as Adonis Creed faces Viktor Drago, son of Ivan Drago, the man responsible for the death of his father, Apollo Creed.
We discuss the film’s ability to tastefully conjure the nostalgia of Rocky IV, the spectacular performance of Michael B. Jordan, the supposed final performance of Sylvester Stallone as Rocky, the sympathetic portrayal of The Drago’s, the future of the Creed franchise, and our final rankings of every Rocky film.
Plus, your feedback from the POST Wrestling Forum.
