As noted earlier this month, a misdemeanor arrest warrant was issued for Slater. Slater subsequently issued a statement claiming his innocence and pointing out his confidence that the charges would ultimately be dismissed. WWE also issued a statement and claimed they would take the appropriate action once they received details on the warrant.
Slater’s last WWE match was at the SmackDown tapings on November 25th, just one week prior to the arrest warrant being issued. NXT star Tyler Breeze has apparently replaced Slater on the current holiday tour.
