In 2004, Sgt. Slaughter was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. An honor that he said was a unanimous decision among voters.

"Being inducted into the Hall of Fame is the number one thing that you're shooting for. You don't win titles, you earn titles, and to earn the right to be a Hall of Famer and voted in by your peers — I was unanimously voted in," stated Slaughter in an interview with FoxNews. "I was still wrestling, actually, and it was a great honor. I knew what it was like for me to think of what I wanted to say, who I wanted to thank. And as anything, there's time limits. Wrestlers can talk the chrome off a bumper, so you have to try to get it all into one 10-minute conversation — your whole career, your whole life and who to thank. So it's a pretty big deal and I really enjoyed it. This year it’s going to be at the Barclays Center, and I look forward to it because it's my favorite time of the week when I hear the stories and hear who they thank and how they got there."

The voting process for the WWE Hall of Fame -- if there is one -- has never been revealed. 

This year's WWE Hall of Fame ceremony will take place on Apr. 6.
