Heath Slater on knocking on Vince McMahon’s doorstep and requesting to join legends on Monday night RAW:

“The whole thing was RAW 1000 is coming up. You hear rumors about, ‘Oh, we’re going to bring some legends in. Who knows who it’s going to be. They’ll do some backstage stuff.’ Literally starting the road to RAW 1000, I go to the building. I put my bag up. I go get some food. Next thing you know, you go to talent relations and in talent relations, you got to check in and sign papers if you got to sign papers and all the BS. In talent relations, they have the rough draft always up on there, so you can probably go in there and see what they are kind of thinking. I look and it’s like Heath Slater versus Vader. I look over to [Mark] Carrano and I’m like,’ Hey, man, it’s this just like a joke. Like, is Swoggle gonna be dressed up as Vader or something and come down and beat me up? Like, what’s happening?’ He’s like, ‘You’re gonna be working with Vader tonight.’ I said, ‘Hold on, like Big Van Vader?” He said”How numerous Vaders do you have? He replied, ‘They’re talking about getting to RAW 1000 and bringing an iconic wrestler each week to wrestle. I asked, ‘Am I going to be the one who wrestles each week?’ He replied”No, probably not whoever.’ I thought”No, no I’m just trying to be the guy.’ I went out and knocked on Vince’s door. I went in and Vince was like, “Hey you’re welcome to come into.’ I’m like’Hey, I’m sure the fact that I’m working alongside Vader. Could I be able to have that each week? Let me play the role of an anti-legend. For example, ‘You old guys take a break. It’s my turn to shine. It’s the young children’s chance to shine.’ He said”Are you willing to be a part of that?’ I said, ‘Damn it. It’s me.’ He’s like, ‘okay.'”
