Rocky Balboa was prescient in his Rocky IV post-fight speech. If he can change, we all can change, the bloodied pugilist from South Philadelphia said. And change we have over the past 29 years since that epic battle between good and evil went down. The Soviet Union changed by dissolving. Ivan Drago changed by putting on a few extra pounds. And Sylvester Stallone changed into a purple blazer.

The two fictitious fighters reunited recently and Vanity Fair was there to capture the moment. It's unclear exactly why the two were reunited but it's likely to film the next installment of the Rocky franchise, Rocky 47.

UPDATE: It was actually to get together with the cast of Expendables 3, which is a third thing.
