The first two battles between The Iron Sheik and Sgt. Slaughter had settled nothing. All they had proved was that both men were out to destroy each other. Both men continued wrestling various preliminary opponents, preparing for their upcoming rematches. During this time, Sgt. Slaughter continued to train his protégé Terry Daniels, escorting him to ringside and observing his matches from there.
The Slaughter/Sheik rematch took place in Madison Square Garden (MSG) on May 21, 1984. The Iron Sheik, accompanied by his manager “Ayatollah” Blassie immediately began shouting “Iran, number one” into the microphone, much to the disgust of the fans. Then “The Marines’ Hymn” played and MSG erupted into cheers as Sgt. Slaughter and his flag-bearer Private Terry Daniels walked towards ringside. Slaughter dismissed Daniels and entered the ring.
