Character mistake: During the movie, Stallone Lincoln Hawk is referred several times as 'Hawks' by other characters (the police officer retrieving him from his cell, as well as his former father-in-law, who should know his real name). Lincoln actually calls himself Hawkes before he crashes the gate.
Other mistake: Just before the first arm wrestling match against "Smasher, " Bull Hurley is seen in the doorway looking at Lincoln accept a match. A few seconds later Bull seems to appear into the doorway like he is showing himself for the first time.
Trivia: The punch that Bull Hurley gave Hawk during the final match that made his nose bleed was real. Stallone told the guy to do it since he was the director but didn't give him a "cue point" in which to do it. Meaning Stallone never knew when it was going to happen so that his reaction would be authentic to the hit. Stallone stated that he took more punishment in trying to be authentic in this movie by taking actual hits such as this one and arm-wrestling professionals that were hired for the film, than he did in any of the Rocky movies.Rollin Garcia Jr
