Sgt. Slaughter and his daughter recently argued with Lacey Evans on Twitter over Lacey stealing parts of Sgt. Slaughter’s look & gimmick for her new look.
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.
During a recent interview with Bill Apter, Slaughter revealed that he doesn’t watch SmackDown because of Lacey Evans and expressed his displeasure about what Lacey is doing.
Below is what the former WWF World Heavyweight Champion said:
“I don’t watch WWE as much as I did. I watch RAW because SmackDown has Lacey on it.
It doesn’t upset me because I know she can’t put a Cobra Clutch on like I do but it’s just the thought that she’s using a move without – at least I would think the writers or somebody would call me up and say, ‘you mind if we use the Cobra Clutch?’ or maybe call it something else because DiBiase brought it in when I was gone with G.I. Joe and he used it as the Million Dollar Dream.
She could have maybe come up with another name of it but just to call it the Cobra Clutch, I had to end up using the Camel Clutch when I came back [in 1990] because DiBiase was using my hold. I asked [Iron Sheik]. I said is it okay if I use your move?
That’s the way the business was. You respect your talent and the people that you worked with.”
Despite changing her look and using the WrestleMania 7 main eventer’s move, Lacey hasn’t found success, as she hasn’t won a match in 4 months.
