My favorite time for Slaughter was "The Road To Greensboro" and the "Final Conflict" with him and Kernodle as the NWA World Tag Champs being chased by Steamboat and Youngblood.
Second is the "Alley Fight" feud with Patterson in the WWF.

Here's the first part of a compilation called "The Road To Greensboro" that's on YouTube. If anyone hasn't seen this yet I highly recommend watching it. I believe it has almost 30 parts to it, which includes the final conflict match, but it's well worth watching:

Didn't care for his final (Iraqi) heel run. Preferred Sarge waving the flag and leading in "The Pledge Of Allegiance". I think his work as a good guy dried up because wrestling itself got away from "foreign heels".

the iraq thing bothers me to this day.. every time i see him with the American flag, i think about that turn..

Now thats what wrestling is lacking now. Marks who still believe.

lay off i was an impressionable little kid..

and it's still real to me..

I loved him as a heel.  Then again, almost everyone is usually better as a heel because they are generally given freedom to say and do things that goes against what they are known as.

Sgt. Slaughter as a heel was great because he was the perfect antagonist for Jim Duggan and Hulk Hogan at the time, and it actually helped Hogan because he was losing popularity at the time in WWF, until that heel turn.

WAY better as a heel. Couldn't stand the face character.

Mixed feelings about the final Iraqui sympathizer heel run. He also gave one of the longest, most uncomfortable promo's ever during this period. Can't recall which PPV.

The only time his Gimmick worked as a face was against  the Iron Shiek. After that it got old.

This and this.


+1, but his Iraqi sympathizer was a bit of a stretch for me.

I think he was at his best as a face.

Heel, circa early 80s WWF and Mid Atlantic

Could bump like crazy for a big guy and really put the faces over. Had the frightening Cobra Clutch as a finisher, as well.
