Heath (fka Heath Slater) has explained why IMPACT Wrestling opted to extend his contract with the company.
Heath debuted for IMPACT at Slammiversary 2020 as a free-agent, before winning a contract at Bound For Glory that October. Heath suffered an injury during the bout, and didn’t return to action until September 2021.
Speaking on Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw, Heath confirmed that he had originally signed a two-year deal with IMPACT.
Noting that his contract was extended by a year, due to his injury, Heath said:
“At this moment, I’m working for IMPACT Wrestling, I had two years with them, but my contract extended a year because I got hurt, had surgery, I was out for a year, rehab, therapy, all that good stuff. Now, they put humpty dumpty back together and I’m ready to go out there and have some fun.
“Working for IMPACT, I’m doing as many Indies and signings that I can because I never had the chance to do this type of things and I’m excited to do them because it’s new for me. Anything with wrestling that I haven’t done. I want to do it, I want to get used to it, I want to sit at the table and sell gimmicks.”
Heath unsuccessfully challenged for Moose’s IMPACT World Championship at the March 5 Sacrifice event.
