Heath Slater finally has a path to recovery.
2020 was a wild year for Heath Slater. After being released by WWE on Wednesday, April 15, 2020, he popped up in IMPACT Wrestling at their Slammiversary event. After engaging in a storyline where he was trying to get Scott D'Amore to sign him to a contract, Heath would be injured in the Call Your Shot Battle Royal at Bound for Glory in October
In a video update on Twitter, Slater announced that he would be undergoing surgery for a multitude of injuries on Monday, March 1, 2021. Heath stated that one of the reasons it took so long to officially confirm surgery is the time it took to find a doctor who would be willing to take care of everything at once.
Heath stated that he has a sports hernia on the left side of his pubic bone, another hernia on the right side, he has a rip on both sides of his abdomen wall, and his abductor muscle completely off the bone.
