As we noted on December 3rd, a misdemeanor arrest warrant was issued for Slater. Slater issued a statement saying he was innocent and he was confident that the charges would be dismissed. WWE also issued a statement and said they would take appropriate action once they received details on the warrant. After that, WWE Superstar Bad News Barrett tweeted his support for Slater.
Slater's last match came at the November 25th SmackDown tapings, just a week before the warrant was issued. NXT star Tyler Breeze is apparently replacing Slater on the current holiday tour. He teamed with Titus O'Neil and Hornswoggle to lose to Los Matadores and El Torito at Friday night's live event in Chicago.
- As noted, Randy Orton was pulled at the last minute from tonight's WWE live event on Long Island. Orton was backstage at the show as he granted a Make-A-Wish wish. Below are photos from his meeting with Juan:
