Jinder Mahal def. Heath Slater to earn a Raw contract
Not only is Heath Slater still a free agent, but also The One Man Band has been continuously upstaged by other free agents making their way back to WWE. On SmackDown Live, it meant eating a Gore from Rhyno. On Raw, it meant taking a loss to his fellow former 3MB bandmate Jinder Mahal, whom he initially brought in as a potential partner to sweeten the deal for himself. But Slater ended up having to battle Mahal after Mick Foley dangled the cherry of the last remaining Raw contract to the winner. While Slater protested Foley’s desire to “break up the band,” The Maharaja struck, booting Slater in the head soon as the bell rang and scoring the pin. The lesson? In the New Era, not even Heath Slater can hinder Jinder.
