WWE released several Superstars from the company on April 15th. Heath Slater spent 16 years in WWE before he received his release. This was something that he obviously never wanted, but he was prepared for anything.
While speaking to Busted Open Radio, Heath Slater discussed his WWE release and how he’s doing now. He stated that he was “never stupid” with his money which is a good thing. He has always lived below his means. Slater never became WWE Champion, or even IC Champion, but he seems very satisfied with what he was able to accomplish in WWE.
“But, when I say this, it’s like people don’t understand that I was there for 14 straight years. I mean, I grew up on television, pretty much. So, it’s one of those things like I was never stupid with my money. I always lived below my means. Hell, I’ve got a family – two little girls that I’m worried about. It’s one of those things where I had a good career. Yes, I didn’t become World Champ, or hell, not even IC Champ, but it’s one of those things like when you look at it and analyze it all, dude, I had one hell of a run. It was awesome and fun. I got to meet so many new people, you know, make relationships. It wasn’t a bad experience for me. Did I not get my way a lot? Of course not, but who does? It’s one of those things man, I had 14 years there, straight, no breaks. Yeah, the Coronavirus might’ve taken me out, but I was glad that I was smart with my money, and my kids are in a good school district. I’ve got everything I need.”
Heath Slater has plans to go out into the world following WWE and make an even bigger name for himself. He has a new fire and determination in him that wasn’t there before.
It’s good to know that despite his release from WWE that the One Man Band seems to be doing well.
