Because he has a good selling. He ONLY has a good selling. Pretty much the same thing with Ryder, although Ryder's has improved a bit in wrestling skills-

Think hard about this: would you rather have him winning matches on Superstars or losing matches on Raw?

1) Go out there and get the fans to boo him
2) Put over a guy
3) Also look good in the process so that fans could continuously boo him

He does his job to perfection. Wrestlers and the fans often forget that pro wrestling is just a job. World Champion, Us champ, Mr. MITB they're all imaginary brass rings. They're part of the job. The title is just handed to you. So what if you've never Vince McMahon's imaginary brass rings? What sense does it make if you're a US champ or worse yet WWE champ and every week you walk through the curtain, there crowd is dead silent?

It's better to be the stupid jobber who gets cheered or booed than to be the World Champion who can't even garner a reaction. Because it means as a jobber, you've succeeded. As world champion, you failed to do your job. At the end of the day pro wrestling is all about he fans and getting them to love or hate you.


Best. Explanation. Ever.

This is coming from a Ryberg fan LOL.

Have you seen the guy? I'd be worried if he was any higher in the food chain.

Heath Slater grew on me big time during his segments with the legends pre-Raw 1000. I agree with OP that he actually has charisma and is more interesting that half the roster. I'm happy to just the the guy appear on Raw. I'm sure he feels the same way. He gets to talk about himself being the one man band "baby!!", gets to make his opponents look good, and gives the fans what they want... to see Heath Slater get the crap beaten out of him.
