Heath Slater actually broke the top 10 in votes for the 2015 WWE Superstar of the Year Slammy Award. This is why he's featured in this week's sitdown interview with Michael Cole, as seen above. Below are a few highlights from the throwaway interview:
* Cole says Heath Slater is in demand and his producers had to talk him into having Slater on the show. Slater wonders if he's being pranked. Slater placed #8 for Superstar of the Year and says he does matches here and there, he goes out and loves what he does, but says only the top dogs have been on Cole's show and now he's here.
* Cole brings up fan support for Slater on social media and says it started with the Slater Appreciation Day when fans tried to get Slater in John Cena's US Open Challenge. Slater says Cena must be scared of him. Slater says everyone else got put in front of him for a title shot. Slater says fans are asking for him every single week but he's not on RAW. Slater says he's challenged United States Champion Alberto Del Rio as well. Slater says the people want to see him.
* Cole asks Slater to sing a Christmas Carol and he does "Jingle Bells" because his daughter loves that song. There's not much to the interview as Cole walked on Slater, who said he has so much more to say.
