You know the phrase “a man will do anything for his
family”? Well, for Heath Slater, that includes interrupting Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman’s final, pre-SummerSlam message to Randy Orton to call The Beast out, as Raw management had promised the hottest free agent in the game a Team Red contract if he took on Lesnar and won.
There’s something to be said for bravery, and Lesnar, for what it’s worth, admitted he respected Slater’s guts before annihilating him. And annihilate Slater he did, sending The One Man Band to Suplex City and F-5 alley before Heyman took hold of the mic and did what he does best.
Heyman hyped SummerSlam by promising unparalleled dominance on behalf of The Beast Incarnate and a beatdown for Randy Orton that would go down in the record books.
