Sgt. Slaughter is a WWE Hall Of Famer and one of the most respected Superstars in the history of the company. While he is respected, there are still quite a few people who don’t think he deserves all the praise. Now it appears he’s trying to stop Lacey Evans from using his finisher.

Lacey Evans sported a new look after she returned, wearing a camouflage jacket and hat, similar to Sgt. Slaughter. This led to Slaughter’s daughter calling her out for stealing his look. This essentially opened up a can of worms with even Sgt. Slaughter getting involved in a big way.

Sgt. Slaughter previously expressed his belief that WWE should have sought his permission before allowing Lacey Evans to incorporate the Cobra Clutch into her move-set. This discussion is clearly an ongoing one, as Slaughter isn’t done talking about it.

Sgt Slaughter has filed trademark applications for four new trademarks with the United States Patent & Trademark Office. The applications were made on July 25, 2023 under Slaughter’s legal name of Robert R Remus. Remus has filed applications for the following terms.
