In 1992, Sylvester Stallone starred in a box-office failure titled Stop! Or my Mom Will Shoot. The film featured Sgt. Joe breaks up with his girlfriend after which her mom comes to visit the house and interferes and messes up his life.

“I got it and I said, ‘What a piece of s*** this is.’ He goes, ‘Ha ha ha!’. At least I wasn’t pregnant in a film Arnold. We’re even,”
The actor revealed that their rivalry has been buried in the past but still, the duo like to banter around and have fun. Stallone reveals how they both would cancel each other from getting movies.

The duo was involved in much rivalry during the early era of Hollywood and would get jealous if the other would have a much more successful film than the other.
