Former WWE Superstar Heath Slater, who now goes mononymously as Heath, recently reflected on his first WrestleMania match and explained why it remains his favorite memory, despite its brief duration.
At WrestleMania 27, the Impact Wrestling star participated in an eight-man tag team match that lasted only a minute and a half. In conversation with Wrestling Shoot Interviews, Heath stated that he found the situation amusing. He said,
“When I did everything my first Mania. Rey Mysterio and Cody Rhodes went like 10 minutes over. We had an eight-man tag, it was The Corre against [Big] Show, Kane, Santino and Kofi. And as soon as the bell rung, I mean, there was Santino and they turned around, looked at me and said, “Go home.”
“I said, ‘Hold on, what?’ They’re like, ‘Go home.’ And Tino had this whole spot, we all had this 15-minute match planned, you know? And next thing you know man, after four entrances, five entrances, 75 yards to the ring — that takes up seven minutes, you know? Next thing you know man, ‘Go home, man.’ I kicked Santino right in his damn gut. He’s like, ‘What the hell?’ I said, ‘Bro, do your comeback.’ That happened my first ‘Mania.”
In the same interview, Heath Slater also chatted candidly about the likes of Ryback, Doc Gallows, Bo Dallas, Enzo Amore, The Miz & more.
