I am reposting this because there was a technical difficulty. I just want to thank everyone around the whole wide World for taking the Rocky family into their hearts for over 40 years. It’s been my Ultimate privilege to have been able to create and play this meaningful character. Though it breaks my heart, Sadly all things must pass… and end. I love you Kind and generous people , and The most wonderful thing of all , is that ROCKY will never die because he lives on in you ….
So he did say he was retiring Rocky…but in the video he says, “This is probably my last rodeo”…so maybe he’s leaving the door ever so slightly ajar for a potential comeback.
