Heath Slater (WWE) Biography
Slater was born as Heath Wallace Miller on July 15, 1983, in Pineville, West Virginia. He was raised there by his mother, Dee Taylor, his grandfather, and his stepfather. Interestingly, even as he grew up in a place where wrestling was not a regular sport, Miller’s mind was to become a wrestler. As a result of this, he always told his mom and grandfather that school was not for him as he believed his life was particularly made for the ring.
For his education, he went to the Wyoming East High School where he made it as a good athlete as well as a good student. After he was done, the wrestling superstar went to the Potomac State University where he continued as an athlete, playing basketball. Nonetheless, it was only a year that he spent in college before leaving for wrestling school in Atlanta, Georgia.
Before finally making it as a wrestler, Heath Slater took some jobs to take care of himself and his family. After his training with the World Wrestling Alliance (WWA4) Wrestling School, he signed a deal that would see him in the WWE in 2006.
In 2007, he found himself in Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) for some more training. The next year, Miller won the FCW Southern Heavyweight Championship after he stood in to fight in place of Ted DiBiase, Jr. who was injured defend the title.
