There is no doubting how much heat Sgt Slaughter drew as a heel which is why they even had to change venue for WrestleMania 7 as Vince McMahon is said to have feared a sniper attack but Hogan/Slaughter was always said to be third choice for the main event after Warrior/Hogan and Warrior/Savage.
I remember reading that Vince exaggerated the death threats to cover up the real reason for the change of venue. The real reason allegedly was because of poor ticket sales. So they moved from the stadium to the arena.
