    I picture this match going like this. Tugboat/Shockmaster makes his way to the ring. Stumbles over the bottom rope, and Sarge locks in the Cobra Clutch. After about 10 seconds, Typhoon is out on the mat, and Sarge wins without breaking a sweat.

    If for some reason, he doesn't fall over the rope, Slaughter is still a superior wrestler and won't be taking out by a guy whose career was at it's best when teaming with Earthquake.

    Slaughter, what did Sgt. Slaughter ever do. Oh he had a boot camp match or something crazy like that. No, what Sgt. Slaughter is remembered for is being a GI Joe. He's a walking talking real life cartoon, that's all. When he came back to wrestler, he became the king of cheap heat before Mick Foley. Ewww, it's so hard to get over as a heel when you become the walking talking mouth piece for Saddam Hussein in America. You nasty defector you. Seriously, that's all the WWF could offer up in late 1990, a Drill Sgt. turned traitor. The kicker, the war ended before the big pay off, so it looked even more silly, yippie. Damn real life getting in the way of prescripted storylines and a pay off at Mania 7. Cheap heat, that's it. Once that ride was over, Slaughter faded away into obscurity.

    What is legend, I'll tell you what is legend. A man becomes legend when he gets over as not one, not two, but three different gimmicks. That's right. As tugboat, he was the gentle giant best friend of Hulk Hogan, successfully thrusting himself in as the #2 face in the company. Oh, the horror, the horror, Tugboat is no longer nice, he's now the evil monster heel Typhoon forming one of the greatest tag teams ever in the Natural Disasters. Comedy Wrestler, I'll give you comedy wrestler, The Shockmaster baby. So over as a face, over as a heel, and over as a comedy wrestler. Fred Ottman is the complete package. Not only does he have overwhelming size and strength to his advantage, but he was over on real heat, not cheap heat.

    Fred Ottman is the prototype for all things to come. Remember when you step into the polls, that the 3 Faces of Fred came along before the 3 Faces of Foley.

    Vote Tugphoonmaster!!!

    I'm going to go with Ottman. He was great as a face and a heel and got over on those gimmicks. Even though Slaughter was a good wrestler I will have to put Ottman over Slaughter.

    Slaughter. People forget his 80s stuff and mainly remember him as Jay Leno's chin's stuntman. Some of his 80s stuff was great when he still used the Slaughter Cannon and the Cobra Clutch. He's very underrated for some of his earlier stuff. Tugboat was just a bad gimmick all around. He never won anything without help. At least Slaughter got the top title for awhile. No contest here.

    Slaughter only won the WWF Championship because Savage interfered twice. That being said, he was the person to take the title off the Ultimate Warrior, and if pinning the Ultimate Warrior isn't a display of kayfabe strength, I don't know what is.

    The Shockmaster may have been over as a comedy wrestler, but he didn't exactly win very often did he. I'd massively disagree that Tugboat was more over than the Ultimate Warrior, so how he could be the number 2 face is beyond me.

    Slaughter's cheap heat for being an Iraqi sympathiser is no worse than Hogan being a "real American". Anyway, it doesn't matter how the heat was got, it was still there, and at the end of the day these two wrestlers were in their prime at round the same time, one was the WWF Champion, and one was nowhere near, so Slaughter wins here.

    Like somebody said, Slaughter only beat The Warrior because of Savage. Slaughter only gave Hogan trouble because he had help. He lost a handicap match at Summer Slam and lasted all of about a minute in the 1992 Rumble. Inept is the word I'd use. It's not Rey Mysterio was the first fluke champion.

    Look at the 4th Annual Survivor Series for a real look at the talents of Sgt. Slaughter. He lost to the worst team in the whole thing. His team with Duggan is a better indication of what he was really like.

    Natural Disasters > Slaughter & Duggan. FACT.

    I got Slaughter here. Tugboat would give him a run, but once Slaughter got control back he'd lock in the cobra clutch and send Tugboat packing.

    The Schockmaster? Seriously? That wasn't a good gimmick, it was probably one of the worst ever. This match would actually be close, but I'll go with Slaughter to get a submission about 10 minutes in.

    Some of Sgt. Slaughter's stuff in Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling was classic. Also, let's not forget that this man has victories (in Mid-Atlantic) over Steamboat and Wahoo McDaniel. On the other hand, Tugboat's biggest success came when he tagged with Earthquake to form The Natural Disasters in the WWF. I liked the team very much (I would even argue that they were one of the best Super Heavyweight tag teams of all time), but this is as far as Tugboat's success goes.

    Furthermore, let's not forget that this is in WCW, the company where Steamboat and McDaniel were greatly respected and where Tugboat took part in what was arguably the company's most notorious blunder.

    So, Slaughter FTW!
