It was one of the most tasteless, opportunistic angles the WWF has ever done.
Well, by 1991 he had a change of heart (for some unexplained reason) and was really, really sorry about it and he just wanted his country back as demonstrated in these blubbering, whiney, “woe is me” vignettes.
So, he decides to go to a grade school (?) and the kids embrace him.
What kind of lousy teacher lets him in the room with the kids and then leaves?
Anyway, Sgt. Slaughter became a face again after the horribly tasteless heel stint (and The Gulf War) had run its course.
