Sgt. Slaughter Rejects WWE’s Offer to Manage Lacey Evans, Demands $1 Billion Contract

One big thing: WWE Hall of Famer Sgt. Slaughter turned down an offer to manage Lacey Evans, calling the proposed contract a “slap in the face.”

The details:

• Slaughter revealed on Busted Open Radio that WWE approached him to manage former WWE Superstar Lacey Evans.

• He rejected the offer, stating he deserved a “billion-dollar contract” for his contributions to the company.

• Slaughter said, “I should be given a billion-dollar contract just for what I did for your company. But then you send me a contract that I wouldn’t have wiped my butt with it if I was that kind of guy.”

• The WWE legend also objected to Evans using his signature Cobra Clutch move, asserting his ownership of the finisher.

Why it matters:

This incident highlights the ongoing tensions between WWE and its legendary performers, as well as the company’s approach to utilizing its past stars to elevate current talent.

The bigger picture:

• Lacey Evans’ character borrowed heavily from Sgt. Slaughter’s persona, causing friction with the Hall of Famer.

• Evans left WWE last year and has since diversified her income sources, including a construction company and premium content behind a paywall.

• The situation underscores the challenges WWE faces in balancing respect for its legends with the need to create new stars.

What’s next:

Lacey Evans’ future in wrestling remains uncertain, though she hasn’t ruled out a return to the ring. It’s unlikely that Sgt. Slaughter will be involved if she does make a comeback.
