Former WWE Superstar Heath Slater was recently the guest on The Wrestling Inc Daily podcast. Here are a couple of highlights….
On WWE’s empy arena shows:
“I hate it. Everyone hates it because the people is what makes it. My goodness! When I was a heel, the best thing was when I would have a dude in a hold and I would hear something. Someone would say, ‘Oh, you suck’ and I’d be like, ‘Oh, you shut your mouth!’ I’d just go off on them and that’s the best feeling in the world.”
“But if there’s no one there and I’m going, ‘Shut your mouth’ then they’re gonna be like what’s he talking about? Is he okay?”
On WWE not being able to just air old footage:
“It’s one of those things where you have to go live, even if there ain’t no one there because you already signed the dotted line.”
“Look what’s going on. Hell if I know. That’s above my head,” admitted Slater. “I’m the guy who walks out to cool music and gets to have fun for 15 minutes.”
