• “That Is Very Disrespectful” – WWF Legend Isn’t Happy About Lacey Evans Using His Finisher
Old School WWF Legend Sgt. Slaughter recently revealed that he would be willing to become the on-screen manager of current female WWE Superstar Lacey Evans, but it seems that his opinion of her has changed quite a bit, after Lacey started using his famous submission finisher ‘The Cobra Clutch’.
Here’s what Slaughter tweeted about her using his move:
“I Like Lacy WHO? It’s Just Using My ‘Infamous’ COBRA CLUTCH Without Consulting ME & Getting My Permission That Is Very Very Disrespectful At Least Let Me Show & Train You How To Use The Most Decorated Finishing Maneuver In The History of Pro Wrestling.”
The former WWF Champion then replied directly to a promotional video, posted by Evans, in which she is using the finisher.
Here’s what he replied to her on Twitter:
“Listen Up Maggot ‘Imitation Is The Highest Form Of Flattery’ Take NO Prisoners Marine & That’s An Order Stop By Camp Slaughter MOS 5811 If YOU Dare If YOU Make It Past My Sentry I’ll Drill YOU In The @_SgtSlaughter Annihilation Version of MY Cobra Clutch”

Sgt. Slaughter first wrestled for Vince McMahon Sr.’s World Wrestling Federation between 1980 and 1981, before he joined Jim Crockett Promotions (representing the National Wrestling Alliance), where he became the NWA United States Heavyweight Champion, but eventually returned to the World Wrestling Federation in 1983, after Vince McMahon Jr. took over the promotion from his father the previous year.
By 1984, Slaughter was a babyface, who had legendary Boot-Camp matches with former WWF World Heavyweight Champion The Iron Sheik, but left the company in December 1984 to join Verne Gagne’s American Wrestling Association.
There were 2 stories about why he was leaving back then, with one being that he was fired for no-showing an event as a form of protest of not receiving six weeks of paid vacations, while another story included a dispute over the WWF not allowing Sarge to appear in the popular 80’s ‘G.I. Joe’ toyline, which eventually happened afterwards.
Slaughter then returned to the WWF in 1990 as an anti-American Iraq-sympathizer, after Gagne’s AWA closed its doors.
The 2004 WWE Hall of Famer wrestled his first ever WrestleMania match in 1991, when he main evented the WWF WrestleMania 7 pay-per-view as the reigning and defending WWF World Heavyweight Champion.
