Heath Slater Talks About His WWE Release, “Not Caring Anymore” On Chasing Glory Podcast

Heath Slater recently opened up about “not caring anymore” while discussing his recent WWE release with longtime ring announcer Lilian Garcia during his appearance on the “Chasing Glory” podcast.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On the end of his WWE run: “Yes, I lost my job, but I was burnt out, like burned the hell out, fact. I knew it, my family knew it, my coworkers knew it. Fourteen years, four years developmental, ten years on the road to where you can be promised, you can be told you didn’t even have it in your hand and ready and it changes on the drop of a dime. Putting everyone over for 10 years takes a toll on somebody, your confidence, your drive, your fire. I do everything you ask and I can’t get a bone. I went through those a lot. I wish I would have taken more control, walking in there and saying why is this happening? Why are we doing this? Why can’t we do it this way? I have 15 great reasons why we can do it this way, but why are we going that way?

On why he didn’t take control: “I think what it was in my younger days was I did go in there and try and talk. I heard, no, no. I heard “no “too many times to where I said, you know what, shit, I’m not going to push no more shit because when I do, it goes nowhere. If I do pitch something good, it goes to someone else. When you get tired of hearing no, it’s not for you, you can’t do that, you kind of start believing it. Getting fired, I do believe I needed this to get the fire, get the hunger, and focus. Out of the last 4 or 5 years besides me and Terry winning the tag titles, which was an awesome little run, I’ve been so burned out and not even caring.”
