WATCH: Heath Slater receives a wake-up call in new teaser video



Heather Slater is looking forward to his next journey in the pro wrestling business.

Slater was let go by WWE due to budget cuts related to the financial impact of the coronavirus back in April. He joined several wrestlers in being released and having to wait for their non-compete deal with WWE to expire.

Now that Slater is free and clear to sign with any promotion he wants, Slater has released a new video on his Instagram account to hype his post-WWE career.

As seen below, the video features Slater checking into a hotel before going to sleep. While sleeping, Slater has a nightmare as he recalls moments where WWE legends beat him. This leads to him receiving a wake-up call from the front desk and stares at the camera.

He wrote the following in the caption of this video:

"When I was young, I dreamt of having a place just for me inside the squared circle. With the help of my Mom and Grandpa, I made that dream my reality," Heath writes as part of the video's caption. "At 23 years old, my priority was me and only me. I lived the life that the old timers told me about and life on the road was everything I thought it would be at first. As the years went on my career evolved and so did I. I became a man, a husband and a father. Year after year, loss after loss my time in the ring became less and less fulfilling and my time at home became more and more precious but there was never a healthy balance between the two.

"Leaving WWE may have not been on my terms, but moving forward the choices I make regarding my career and my life will be ONLY on my terms," he adds. "Over the last 14 years, I lost the man I thought I was... but Thank God I'm finding him again. I'm ready to reignite my fire. I'm ready to be the wrestler I was meant to be, while being the father and the husband that my family deserves. Now it's my turn and I'm going to rise. So y'all better watch the hell out.”

There’s still no word yet on which promotion he’ll sign with but there have been teasers of him reuniting with his former tag team partner, Rhyno, in Impact Wrestling.

It’s possible that he makes a surprise appearance at tonight’s Slammiversary PPV event.
