The WWE Royal Rumble Premium Live Event will be taking place on January 27, 2024, at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida. There is a lot of hype for the event because surprise entrances always light up the show in a big way. Now it appears a former WWE Superstar is open to returning at the Royal Rumble next year.

WWE released a lot of talented stars during the pandemic, including Heath Slater. He found a home in TNA Wrestling, and he had a solid time there. However, he parted ways with the company earlier this year.

Heath Slater worked in WWE from 2006 to 2020, where he was released during the COVID-19 budget cuts. Slater competed in Royal Rumble matches in 2011, 2013, and 2018. He also took part in the 50-man Greatest Royal Rumble match in Saudi Arabia.

While speaking on Rewind Recap Relive, the former 3MB member made it clear that he is more than willing to return to WWE at next year’s Royal Rumble Premium Live Event somehow.


“If I ever got the call to say, ‘Hey, man, we wanna hit the 3MB music and have you come out in the Royal Rumble,’ I would say, ‘Well, hell yeah, let’s do it,'” Slater stated. “Those are the moments that live on. Those are the moments that you remember. Those are the moments that get you excited and fun.” 

WWE is expected to begin making overtures for former stars returning at the Royal Rumble very soon. It remains to be seen if Heath Slater will make his WWE return after more than three years.
