Here's How Much Sgt. Slaughter Is Worth Today

Professional wrestler Sgt. Slaughter made his debut in the wrestling world in the '70s. He came onto the scene at a hulking 6 feet, 4 inches and weighed 300 pounds. Back then he went by the name Super Mark Destroyer II, and he also donned a mask. The man behind it would eventually ditch it and change his wrestling stage names a few times before settling on Sgt. Slaughter. When he officially entered World Wrestling Federation (now WWE) in the 1980s, he quickly became a familiar name. He even fought against '80s wrestling icons such as Hulk Hogan and Bruno Sammartino.

Despite his name, apparently he's never served in any armed forces, says Marine Times.

But that's news to his iconic wrestling character persona. Known for sporting a drill sergeant's hat and an army fatigue uniform as well as having the mannerisms of a strict drill instructor, who wouldn't think Sgt. Slaughter was an actual marine at some point in time? The character was so popular that in 1985 he even had a G.I. Joe action toy designed after him.
