Major bummer.  Apollo Creed.  Dillon from Predator.  Chubbs from Happy Gilmore.  Greef Karga from Mandalorian.

Played some great characters.  He was just doing those commercials with Gronk too.

That's sad. I like him in The Mandalorian (among other things), and he did an awesome guest run on Arrested Development. My wife and I especially love this scene:

TP. You beat me to it. Such a great scene. Carl Weathers was great as: “Carl Weathers” in AD. He will be missed.

At some point you have to blame the performance on the court on the players on the court. Every loss is not the coach's fault and every win isn't because of the players.

  He was so convincing as a professional boxer. His punches looked so beautiful. What an awesome character he brought to the screen in Apollo,as well as the others already mentioned.
  He was also an awesome host on Saturday Night Live. “ What About A Rainbow…”
