Sgt. Slaughter Talks 2016 WWE Hall Of Fame, Current WWE Roster, What He Does With WWE Now, Freebirds

- WWE Hall of Famer Sgt. Slaughter recently spoke with The Dallas Observer to promote WrestleMania 32. The full interview can be found at this link. Below are highlights:

The Fabulous Freebirds:

I'm hoping that the Freebirds get inducted into the Hall of Fame, especially it being here in Dallas. They try to recognize the local talents that the fans remember. I never tangled with the Freebirds themselves but may have crossed paths with Michael Hayes in a Battle Royale. Michael Hayes was just so good on the microphone. He loved to sing. I think his dream was to be a rock 'n' roller.

The current WWE roster and if he has favorites:

They are all sensational. They wouldn't be there unless they earned the right to be there. I enjoy watching Brock Lesnar, Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and, of course, John Cena. What Kalisto does in the ring is amazing. With these guys it's incredible what they do today. The bar is set high. Paul Heyman is a sensational promo man. How Triple H finds time to be champion and work with the NXT roster is amazing.

His current WWE role:

I work for the WWE as an ambassador and do a lot of charity work. I work with MDA and Make-a-wish, Special Olympics. We go around the country and raise money for those causes. I do a lot of work promoting WWE events. There's so much to promote now that they need all hands on deck. You have to keep up with it.

The 2016 WWE Hall of Fame:

It is my favorite night of the weekend. I'd like to see Ray Stevens and the Fabulous Freebirds and Undertaker be inducted this weekend, although I'm not sure The Undertaker is done wrestling just yet. I'm a fan myself.
