Sly Stallone I Regret Killing Off Apollo Creed … In ‘Rocky IV’

Breaking News

Sylvester Stallone has murderer’s regret — admitting he feels TERRIBLE for killing off Apollo Creed in “Rocky IV” way back in 1985. 

Of course, Stallone didn’t just play Rocky Balboa — he wrote the first 6 installments of the “Rocky” franchise — including the scene in “Rocky IV” when Ivan Drago beat Creed to death in an exhibition match. 

Now, while celebrating Carl Weathers‘ 71st birthday this week — Sly expressed remorse for ending Apollo’s life when there was so much more ‘Rocky’ money to be made!

“I have to admit I regret having Apollo passing away so soon,” Stallone wrote … “He was Irreplaceable.”

He added, “Besides being a great actor he is the BEST cinema boxer of ALL TIME ! Truly amazing , GRACE , POWER , and UNBELIEVABLY FAST!!!!! Never ever to be duplicated! Thank you my friend, never could have done it without you!!!”

There were rumblings that Weathers was upset he wasn’t included in the “Creed” movies — and back in 2015, he gave TMZ the ol’ “no comment” when we brought up the alleged issues. 

But now, it seems the two are on good terms — Weathers ended up attending the “Creed” premiere and has praised the movie publicly. 

By the way, Stallone reportedly wanted to work in an Apollo cameo in “Creed 2” — where Adonis Creed would see visions of his father while being hospitalized after a fight … but he was ultimately overruled by the director. 

Soooo … maybe in “Creed 3”?

Chiefs’ Tamba Hali I Don’t Regret Retiring … Before Epic Season

EXCLUSIVE

Does one of the greatest Kansas City Chiefs ever regret retiring just months before the team’s best run in recent franchise history???

Tamba Hali tells TMZ Sports not one bit …

“I think there were measures — I could’ve did more about being on the team this year, but I’m happy for those guys.”

Hali is a legend in K.C. … having played the last 12 seasons there and racking up 89.5 sacks — but he retired after last season having never gotten further than the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

That’s why we at TMZ Sports wondered if there was at least SOME regret that he decided to call it a career just before Patrick Mahomes got the Chiefs on an epic run this season.

But, 35-year-old Tamba says while it is “bittersweet,” he’s at peace with the decision.

“I think the way coach [Andy] Reid treated me was great. He kind of saved me, because I played the game wreckless. I probably would’ve been on the other side — would’ve wrecked my body.”

“So, I’m happy, yet it is bittersweet.”

As for the Chiefs’ AFC Championship Game against the Pats this weekend … Hali says he’s giving the edge to Mahomes over Tom Brady in the big matchup, and ya gotta hear why.
