In what should be quite a relief for the performer and the company, assault charges against Heath Slater have been dropped. The official reason is that the statute of limitation had passed, as the alleged incident took place back in 2011. WWE has largely kept Slater away from their product since it was announced that he was in legal trouble. In addition to being kept off of Monday Night Raw and Smackdown, he was also banned from live events.
