Heath Slater signed an Impact Wrestling deal, but then he was injured. He has three issues that need corrected, and it took him this long to find a surgeon who can do everything at once.
The former WWE Superstar released a video to fans to give an update on his status. His spirits are high, but he admits that his situation is a bit of a mess. His surgery is scheduled for March 1st, and then he will finally start the healing process.
Alright, so I’ve been getting a lot of messages, texts and tweets and everything in between about, ‘Hey, where you at? What are you doing? What’s happening? Are you hurt? Have you had your surgeries? What’s going on with you?’ So, after three different doctors, three different ways to go with this, I finally found a doctor that can do everything at once. Yes, it has taken three months to find this doctor and yes, it has been an up and down rollercoaster ride of crap and… so, finally found the doctor that can do all my surgeries. I have a sports hernia on the left side of my pubic bone, another hernia on the right side that I don’t even know the name of it. My abductor muscle is actually ripped off the bone, has to get resutured and I have a rip in my abdomen wall on both sides so, little bit of a mess. So my spirits are still high. I’m gonna be out for a little while. My surgery is, thank God, March 1st. So, after March 1st, it’s gonna be the road to recovery so, yeah, keep me in your prayers everybody.
Heath Slater obviously can’t wrestle in his current condition. Hopefully, he will be able to get all of his problems corrected and he can finish out 2021 strong. Right now, we’re still waiting to see him carry on with Impact Wrestling to see what he can achieve in his first run outside of WWE.
