On this week's episode of Monday Night Raw, Heath Slater shockingly appeared on WWE TV for the first time since his release. The One Man Band made his way to the ring and berated his friend Drew McIntyre for not contacting him after he was let go. He then asked Drew to give him the match he promised and the two battled for 24 seconds before the WWE Champion defeated Slater with a Claymore.
After the match, Slater said his appearance was "a nice closing of a chapter." Gary Cassidy at Sportskeeda recently reported Heath's future is indeed away from WWE and the former Superstar has already taped content for Talk N' Shop A-Mania.
The show from Doc Gallows, Karl Anderson and Rocky Romero will be broadcast on pay-per-view on August 1 but was taped in the past couple of weeks.
Little is known about the event but FITE has issued the following preview: "Talk N' Shop comes to life on your screen with all of their zany, raunchy characters, and some of the biggest stars in professional wrestling! Buckle up for a wild, booze soaked wrestling event like only. Little people, large women, & Sex Ferguson coming through the screen on a ride you will have to see to believe!"
Heath's long-term plans are currently unknown but IMPACT Wrestling and Slater himself have teased he could be debuting in the promotion very soon as Rhino's new tag team partner. The Man Beast and The One Man Band enjoyed a fruitful partnership together from 2016 to 2019 and became the inaugural SmackDown Tag Team Champions.
