Electric's mancrush Slater recently did this interview for the press so I thought I'd post it as I know at least one person will be keen to read it

What it was like to face Vader: "I guess it was bittersweet, you could say. Growing up watching him I was scared to death and I had to get in the ring with him. I've been trained and everything and it's like the only thing I've ever remember him by is destroying people, as you can see he pretty much destroyed me, but we don't really have to talk to in on that . . . it was one of those things, he's like 6-5, close to 400 pounds and here I am 6-3, 230 looking good, but the fact of the matter is he's a mastodon of mayhem and I'm just the southern rock band trying to play a tune on his head and I just couldn't get my tune right."

Whether Vader has lost a step: "Honestly, he can still hit as hard as he could. And judging by the people's response, they started chanting 'You still go it.' So, I guess the WWE Universe . . . they think he's still has it. You never really know. He did beat me, so what can I say?"

Coming up short in the match: "Honestly, deep down inside I was giving my best, but it was just too much man for me to handle, I guess."

Watching Vader as a child: "I was just like you as a little kid, you know, scared to death to see it. So, no, I'm glad he didn't wear it. I probably would left the ring and ran out!

"It's like one of those things, you were scared to death of his as a kid, and here I am in the ring looking at him coming down the ramp and the people going crazy and everything... It's just like the goose bump feelings when you get that little knot in your throat. You're just like, 'Oh my God this is really happening.' Like, I might as well just swallow my pride and give it my all."

Predictions for his career in the second half of 2012: "I'm hoping to just stay around and get my (Intercontinental Championship) title shot against my old pro, Christian, and become a champion by the end of the year. But then again, you never know where the ball drops or falls with this company in WWE. I'm just keeping my head up and swinging the bat as many times as a I can. If the ball ever comes in my court I'm going to grab it and take off running as far and as fast as I can with it."

Keeping his name visible: "That's what social media is for, I'm guessing. You don't really know when and where they're going to put you or where you're going to be. So, you've got to just keep up with Twitter and Facebook to keep your name fresh out there and try to just get in when you can."

Cheers Macc OK

Interesting to see he believes he'll get an IC shot. How much would I love this to happen?

He's got a great attitude - it comes across in interviews like this and his tweets. Someone who's prepared to put in the hard time in order to get on TV and get himself recognised and out there, and it's certainly paying off. He's on at least one of the shows almost every week now - squashed or not.

My man Slater is definitely on the up. Don't be a Slater Hater y'all.

I have to say I like Heath Slater, decent in the ring and unlike allot of the superstars of today he has a unique look and gimmick that works, as a heel at best but can also be opened up to being a face also. He's obviously got something otherwise he wouldn't still be at the company, and with this new storyline where I'm assuming he will be up against all the returning legends, he's moving onto better things.

Good luck Heath.

In my head I just tapped fists with you Stonee.
I think it was Deputy Dave who pointed out that he trash talks his opponent as he walks to the ring, which is a nice old school touch that not many people do anymore. (Ziggler bigs himself up - but doesn't directly trash his opponent). And he's pretty funny when he does that.
His promo before the Vader match was hilarious.

Edit : I just tapped fists with you too Martyr!

The fanbase is growing Smile

I really, really like him, the interview after his match with Sin Cara that someone posted the other day had me in stitches. A much better comedy guy then anyone else currently, he is like R Truth was for me last year right at the start of his crazy gimmick before they turned him face and completely ruined it.
