The status of Heath Slater is now in question again. Earlier in the week, reports surfaced that he was being allowed back at WWE live events, now that his assault charges have been dropped. It was said that the Royal Rumble would be his opportunity to make a return. Slater was actually backstage last night at the pay per view, but management decided to not utilize him. That has led to speculations that they might be hesitant to use him again.
