In the ’80s and ’90s, Schwarzenegger and Stallone were strong rivals over action hero supremacy. Arnold recalled some of the goofy aspects of their long-time rivalry at Beyond Fest:

“I’m so glad we straightened out our mess because it wasn’t pretty. We were attacking each other in the press relentlessly. We called each other names and called out our weak points, and it was so competitive. It became so silly that all of a sudden it became a competition about who has the most muscular body. So I said, ‘Sly, forget about that now. Because there’s only one seven-time Mr. Olympia, and it’s me!’

Arnold Schwarzenegger won the Mr. Universe title at age 20 and he was also the winner of the Mr. Olympia title seven times.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Trolled Sylvester Stallone for his Rambo Knife

In the interview, Arnold Schwarzenegger made fun of Sylvester Stallone for having a ridiculously huge knife in the movie, Rambo. He said,

“He had to use bigger weapons. So then it was a competition of who had the biggest gun, and then who uses the biggest knife. Do you remember the Rambo knife became so big it was like a sword? No one has a knife like that! But Stallone had one built, so I had to come in with a bigger one. This is how it went. Who has the most unique killings? Who kills more people on screen? Who makes more money at the box office? Who has less body fat when he goes into production? All of this s*** started happening, and it didn’t stop! It was unbelievable.”

In the 1982 movie Rambo, Sylvester Stallon played the role of John Rambo, a former US soldier who was traumatized by memories of the Vietnam War. He gets into trouble when an incident with a small-town sheriff invokes his violent side.


Schwarzenegger shared that the creation of Planet Hollywood brought the two action heroes together and ultimately helped resolve their rivalry of many years.
