Rhyno And Heath Slater Split On ‘Talking Smack’

After losing the Smackdown Tag Team Titles at TLC, and failing to re-capture them in their rematch on Smackdown Live, Heath Slater and Rhyno were on the Talking Smack post-show to discuss their future. And it appears that Rhyno feels their future will involve going their separate ways, which was clearly news to Slater. We knew Rhyno was only barely tolerating Heath’s eccentricities, but we didn’t know that the titles were all that was keeping them a team. Breakups happen in wrestling, but this is simultaneously the most civil and most heartbreaking one we’ve seen in a long time. This was a total “breaking up with your significant other in a public place so they can’t make a scene” situation, and Heath looks like he’s about to cry.
