Robert Remus (August 27, 1948), better known by his ring name Sgt. Slaughter, a American retired professional wrestler who signed with the WWE in the ambassador program.

From the late 1970s to the early 1990s, he had success in the National Wrestling Alliance, American Wrestling Association, and the World Wrestling Federation. Slaughter's greatest achievement came with him becoming world champion by winning the WWF World Heavyweight Championship in 1991 as well as headlining WrestleMania VII. Slaughter also captured the NWA United States Heavyweight Championship twice. As Sgt. Slaughter, Remus became known for his dark sunglasses, his large hat, and his Vietnam War-era military fatigues. In the 1980s, an alternate version of the Sgt. Slaughter character was incorporated into the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero toy line as well as its animated series and comic books.
