YMMV: Sgt Slaughter
  • Accidental Innuendo: When you have a tag team called the Privates...
  • Shocking Swerve: Slaughter's 90s heel turn made sense. But even following the logic that caused him to turn heel, having him defect to Iraq just didn't make any sense at all.
  • X-Pac Heat: Inverted, when he defected to Iraq he got just the right type of heat for his actions and his character, but it worked too well as Robert Remus began getting death threats. Fans back then treated wrestling as more real than they do now. Like those who are seen as The Scrappy and Creator's Pet they wanted Slaughter to go away and die, but in this case literally.
