63: Rocky Balboa (2006) – The Runaway Franchise Podcast

No guest spot this week but the boys enter the retirement home to face up against 2006’s Rocky Balboa…in what might be the most challenging sad, bummer movie the Runaway Contenders have ever faced. Did this movie bring the hard-hitting inspirational classic that the Boyz have come to enjoy during the Rocky Franchise? Or did it make them crawl in a hole and die…?

You gotta listen to find out!
