Heath Slater has, for a while, probably been the most underrated and over-hated star on the roster. The reasons mainly boil down to the fact he's got red hair, and I suppose some people find that funny.
In all seriousness, though, the former FCW champion brings a lot more to the table than just the classical ginger look.
Heath Slater is a student of the game, and by that I mean he's someone who has an ever-changing moveset with moves that fit and don't quite fit (but look all the more impressive for it) his look, and I believe the WWE is wasting an opportune time to create a new midcard star.
Now, I'm writing this for two reasons. One, I'm a fan of The One Man (Southern) Rock Band. Have been since the original Nexus was alive. And two, I'm noticing a lot of Slater on my television in recent weeks. Granted he's jobbing, but he does his job well, so what can you do?
That said, there's more that can be done with Slater if only the WWE would look to capitalize on it.
