Old School WWF Legend 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. has taken 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.
