Sgt. Slaughter and his daughter recently argued with Lacey Evans on Twitter over Lacey stealing parts of Sgt. Slaughter’s look & gimmick for her recent entrance gear.
It seems like she is also using the Cobra Clutch finisher without asking Sarge first, which is an absolute No-Go in the world of professional wrestling.
A sports betting Twitter account then claimed that even Chris Benoit showed more respect to the pro-wrestling business than Lacey Evans did.
Here’s what they tweeted:
“See Chris Benoit knew how to respect the business. When he was thinking about what he wanted to do, he called Jimmy Snuka first to make sure he was stealing his gimmick.
Jimmy was fine with it. These punks these days don’t respect those who paved the way.”
Sgt. Slaughter then replied in a Tweet of his own:
A fan then took to Twitter and posted:
“Someone makes a move famous, it’s professional courtesy to ask. Not asking implies that they don’t feel that they need to.
That they’re all ‘just moves’ that anyone can do or be given to anyone at anytime.
Seems obvious that wrestling was better when these things mattered.”
The former WWF Champion saw this tweet as well and replied with a thumbs up and a salute!
Sgt. Slaughter wrestled professionally since 1972 and worked for several major promotions, including the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) / World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), Jim Crockett Promotions (NWA) and Verne Gagne’s American Wrestling Association (AWA).
