Although Sylvester Stallone and Pope Gregory might share few connections for the untrained eye, some well preserved paintings of the Roman Church ruler can serve as an excellent clue that we are dealing with yet another case of time travel.

With a tired face, dark circles around his eyes, ready to give up on his ambition of converting the barbarians to Christianity, Pope Gregory looks exactly like Rocky. It was certainly hard being the pope at the end of the 6th century, a time when Europe was struggling to find new identity after the fall of the Roman Empire.

Gregory eventually managed to convinced Franks, Lombards, and Visigoths to align with Catholicism, a heroic act which gave him a later statute of saint. We are still not sure if playing the role of Pope Gregory was a special assignment for Rambo, but we are ready to beat anyone saying that the two of them are not at least related.
