Sgt. Slaughter On Convincing Hulk Hogan To Do Top Rope Spot At WrestleMania VII: He Told Me He’d Do Whatever I Wanted

Convincing Hulk Hogan to do things he’s never done before can be quite the task.

Don’t tell that to Sgt. Slaughter, though.

The WWE Hall of Famer recently spoke with Inside The Ropes and discussed him convincing the Hulkster on doing a top rope slam spot during their WrestleMania VII WWF Championship match.

“Before the match, Hogan told me, ‘Sarge, whatever you want brother, I’m following you. Whatever you want, I’m doing.’ I said, ‘Is that right?’ He said, ‘You’re damn right. You get it on. I trust you and I know you’re going to get the best out of me you can get. So, I’m just telling you, whatever you want to do, I’m in for it.’ During the match, I said, ‘You ever come off the top rope, Terry?’ He goes, ‘What do you mean?’ I said, ‘Have you ever taken a slam off the top rope?’ He goes, ‘Negative.’ I said, ‘Well, you are tonight’ He goes, ‘What?’ I said, ‘You told me I could do whatever I wanted.’ So he did it, and a lot of people say that was one of his best matches.”
