Heath Slater Recalls His Back Hurting After Being Pushed By Flo Rida At WrestleMania 28

Heath Slater has been on the receiving end of many brutal bumps in his career, but perhaps no bump was more brutal than being shoved into a wall at WrestleMania 28.

Slater tried to team up with rapper Flo Rida for a performance, but Flo Rida was having none of it. Instead of just walking away, Flo Rida put his hands on Slater.

Recalling the segment on Busted Open Radio, Slater said, "They wanted Flo Rida to do an interview and were like, 'Heath, you wanna do this interview with Flo Rida? He's gonna push you down.' I'm like, 'Sure.' He's a big dude and was very popular back then. I didn't know how to say no. What got me was, when we were in there and he was pushing me, he legit pushed me about ten times against the damn cinder block wall to where I looked over at Road Dogg and I'm like, 'I'm not taking no more. This better be it.' It was the hardest back bump I took in years. It's one of those things where it's like, Yeah I'm on Mania, but it wasn't 'Woohoo, I got on WrestleMania and got beat up by Flo Rida.' I kinda forgot about it until you mentioned it. I don't take shame in doing stuff like that. If Snoop Dogg wanted to clothesline me and throw me over the top rope. Sure. I'll make him look like Hulk Hogan in the 80s. I'm not opposed to it. But my goodness Flo Rida had a hard push and my back hurt, legit."

The beef between Slater and Flo Rida didn't end there as Slater would confront him on a 2014 episode of WWE Raw. Things didn't turn out any better for the One Man Band as Flo Rida once again shoved him to the ground.

At least it wasn't into another wall.
