We noted last week that Heath Slater has not not wrestled a match since November and it seemed like he was pulled off shows so he could handle his legal situation regarding the woman that is claiming that he tried to get her into his room at the WrestleMania 27 party in Atlanta. WWE has confirmed this and the official statement from them on this is that he was given time off to handle “personal issues.”
Wrestlers are backing him up and confirm that he got engaged on the night of the alleged incident. As a result of this, the Slater Gator team has been dropped. Titus O’Neil has been wrestling singles matches on shows.
There’s nothing new on Rey Mysterio except for the fat that whatever is going on, it’s being kept quiet on both sides. At one point there was a script for Mysterio to start his storyline around Survivor Series. The storyline would build until WrestleMania 31. The storyline has been dropped and people in the company were told not to worry about coming up with storylines for him.
