Last October, Heath Miller, who wrestled as Heath Slater in WWE, was injured during an intergender gauntlet match on Impact Wrestling’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view. He was booked to win the match, but clearly, in pain, Impact Wrestling called an audible. Sami Callihan would eliminate Heath, and instead, Rhino won the match. Following the show, Heath would go to the hospital and stayed overnight. A week on, and Heath shared an update with fans revealing he was initiated diagnosed with a hernia but actually had a partially torn abductor muscle and tear in his groin. He’d then state surgery would not be required.
However, he has unfortunately now had to back on that comment and revealed in an Instagram video he does now need surgery. Apparently, it has taken him three months to find a doctor who would carry out all his necessary surgeries during one operation.
Sadly Heath’s career has been in limbo since the injury. After being mainly booked as a lower card talent for WWE since his days with the Nexus ended. He was scheduled to receive a push in Impact Wrestling, so hopefully, when he is in a position to return to the ring, he can slot back into his planned position on the card.
