Rhyno def. Heath Slater to deny The One Man Band a SmackDown Live contract

Rhyno vs. Heath Slater - If Heath Slater wins, he receives a SmackDown Live contract: SmackDown Live, Aug. 9, 2016

Will The One Man Band finally earn a place on the SmackDown Live roster?

With that ever-elusive contract on the line for Heath Slater he, to quote The Beastie Boys, showed "heart like John Starks,” but ultimately came up short against Rhyno.  

However, Slater fought valiantly against The Man Beast, showing that for all his bravado, hyperbole and memory lapses on how many children he actually has that he is indeed as tough as they come. Slater ultimately fell victim to the Gore after the referee caught him with his feet on the ropes in a pinning attempt that could have put Rhyno down for a three count.

After the contest’s conclusion, the battletested Slater sought out Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan to discuss (perhaps rant) about his future. McMahon and Bryan seemed inclined to award Slater a contract … until he told the Commissioner and the General Manager off and stormed out.
