Shavers would then end up hitting Stallone with a body shot to the liver that sent him down to the ground. He would then go into the bathroom and would not meet with Shavers again.



The role was given to Mr T. In an appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience, Page revealed how Steve Austin touted Stallone as a ‘Top Alpha Dog’. He stated that while Austin was on the set of ‘Expendables’ along with a bunch of other Hollywood A-Listers, ‘Sly’ stood at the top of the rest.
