Heath Slater Discusses The Time They Were Stranded in Saudi Arabia

Heath Slater recently appeared on the Wrestling Inc Daily podcast and talked about a variety of topics, including the time they were stranded on a plane in Saudi Arabia.

“It’s one of those things where you are there and you know something’s up but you don’t know what’s up,” admitted Slater. “But we all got out okay. I still don’t know the truth. I heard there were mechanical reasons and it was this and it was that. When I was on the plane, I fell asleep for five hours and when I woke up, I looked over at Hawkins. I’m like, ‘Where are we at’ and he says we haven’t even left yet.

“That’s when I was like, ‘What the heck?’ We get off the plane and go over to the hotel. We wait and then get back on the plane and hope that we take off. We do but who knows? I really don’t know.”

There’s a lot of stories going around about what happened that day. Some stories say that they had mechanical issues, but others say there were money issues between Vince McMahon and the Saudi Arabia government. There were over 200 WWE employees affected by the delay.
