Stallone arrived arm and arm with his wife Jennifer and made their way into the historic Arlington Theater where Sylvester took the stage and took part in an in-depth conversation led by Deadline’s Pete Hammond.

At the end of the conversation, the original Apollo Creed Carl Weathers made his way up to say a few words and present him with the award.
