Jean-Claude Van Damme Challenged An Action Icon To A Real-Life Fight

Published on

The Nineteen Nineties had been a wild time. Invoice Clinton was in The White Home, Spice Women freely roamed the Earth, and apparently Jean Claude Van Damme was attempting to struggle folks at events. No less than that’s in line with fellow legendary action movie star Sylvester Stallone. Because the star of Cliffhanger and Demolition Man tells it, he threw a celebration in 1997 at which each Van Damme and one more action star, Aikido knowledgeable Steven Seagal, was current.
Sooner or later within the night, Van Damme received upset and challenged Seagal to a one on-one struggle in Stallone’s yard. Reportedly, Van Damme had caught wind that Seagal had been telling folks that he may take the Bloodsport star in a struggle and received fed up. Whereas this sounds extra just like the type of state of affairs you’d count on from 14-year-old boys hopped up on Jolt Soda, apparently that is what occurred.
Nevertheless it didn’t finish there. Whereas Stallone says Steven Seagal made excuses and left the get together, Jean-Claude Van Damme adopted him, insisting on a struggle. Stallone additionally went on to assert that he was certain Van Damme would have received and Seagal was not up for the struggle. All of that is Hollywood lore, however there is no such thing as a motive to assume Stallone can be exaggerating any of it. Seagal is well-known for often and loudly claiming that he may defeat any fighter you can title, together with Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris.
He was so infamous for disrespecting different martial artists {that a} group of well-known kickboxers and karate champions banded collectively and collectively referred to as out the Below Siege star to face any of them. Regardless of his claims, Seagal by no means responded to any of their challenges. And whereas we received’t throw any particular shade right here, Van Damme has a public report of dozens of victories in each full- and semi contact martial arts championships, whereas Seagal…much less so.
For his half, Jean-Claude Van Damme was himself recognized for his volatility and (in line with himself) conceitedness on the time. His publicly admitted substance abuse points had been at their top proper round that interval within the Nineteen Nineties, and it’s probably that neither Van Damme nor Seagal got here off notably nicely of their interactions at Stallone’s get together. After all, Van Damme apparently as soon as broke into Stallone’s home as a way to meet the action legend, so evidently the Rambo star was simply fairly okay with this sort of conduct.
Since their Nineteen Nineties heyday, each Jean Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal noticed their stardom waning. In latest a long time, each have turn into staples of direct-to-DVD action movies (which, hey, it’s work).

Van Damme has turn into notably philosophical and self-aware of his earlier profession and conduct, and has performed a latter-day, broken-down model of himself in a number of movies, together with the well-received JCVD. He has introduced his retirement from action movies with subsequent yr’s What’s My Identify?, by which he’ll play an amnesiac model of himself encountering variations of his previous well-known fights. Seagal has been a citizen of the Russian Federation since 2016, and vocal in his assist of the Putin-led Kremlin.
