After winning the ultimate title and being the world champion, Rocky falls into a hole and finds himself picked up by a former enemy.
The exercise machine Rocky was using while training for his first fight with Clubber Lang was called the Real Runner due to the running motion with the ability to increase the the resistance. They were wildely used for strength training in the early eighties.
Rocky Balboa: Hey why'd you get so crazy on me out there?
Thunderlips: That's the name of the game.
Rocky seems to have no idea how good Clubber Lang is before their first fight. As champion he would be aware of other contenders, especially the number one contender, and would have already seen footage of Lang fighting.
At the end of the credits there is the following statement: 'This film is dedicated to the enduring memory of Jane Oliver'.
