Last night was one of the biggest nights of the year for Impact Wrestling. We saw three new champions crowned, some feuds finished, and sadly; an injury. During a Gauntlet Match for a future shot at the Impact Wrestling Champion, Heath Miller (formerly Heath Slater) would suffer a leg injury, and be taken out of the match.
When Did The Injury Occur?
Things were looking good for Heath, he hit the ring with purpose. He’d hit a neckbreaker on Bryan Myers (fka Curt Hawkins) and a knee strike on Adam Thornstowe. Things were looking shaky after that knee strike, but he’d hit another on Luster The Legend, but had to use the ropes for support. Heath would continue the match, before being eliminated from the Battle Royal.
He’d be attended to at ringside,and would later post from a hospital bed with the simple message of “This sucks…. I’m sorry to everyone.” We don’t know the severity of the injury, but it’s clear that Heath will miss some time from the ring.
Heath Miller Was Intended To Win This Match
What makes all this even worse for Heath, reports indicate this was going to be his big break. He was going to win, and use this to get himself an Impact Wrestling contract. Instead, an audible was called, and instead Rhino won the match.
Given the past connection between Rhyno & Heath, he would get Heath his contract, at the cost of an Impact Wrestling Championship shot. Rhyno entered the match at Number One, survived the entire gauntlet and got his best friend a contract in victory. A great story was told, even if everyone went sideways.
We here at TheOvertimer wish Heath Miller a speedy recovery, and can’t wait to see him back in Impact Wrestling. He’s got kids to support, after all!
