In a recent interview with Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre revealed that Heath Slater, who made a surprise appearance during Monday’s WWE RAW broadcast on the USA Network, was initially against the idea of a return.

“I think I saw something on the internet saying I was behind it and I’m thinking how are they getting this information, but yeah, I played a big part in making it happen and to be honest, Heath was a little bit against it and I spoke to my wife right before the phone call I made to Heath to try and convince him to come onto the show for the segment.”
