He’s got kids and they’ve got a favorite singer. It may not seem like it, but we are coming up on ten years of Heath Slater on the main roster. While he has never been a top singles star, Slater has carved out a nice little niche for himself as the comedy goof who is doing everything he does for his indeterminate number of children. Some of those children joined him in a Twitter video involving a legendary singer, who responded.
Slater has recently posted a video to Twitter showing him singing with his daughter. The Tweet went out to Mariah Carey, suggesting that the two of them do a duet together. Carey responded and said that she and her kids were singing along. As you might have guessed, there is no word on Carey making any kind of an appearance with WWE. Slater’s most recent televised match was on the July 11 episode of Main Event.
Slater and his daughter are rather adorable. Check out their song and Carey’s response:
Awwwww ? me and demkids singing along right now! https://t.co/IQBZ8ixbhb

Opinion: This is just cute on a variety of levels with Slater sending out a Tweet that he probably thought would never be noticed. Carey responding was a cool moment as well and there is a good chance that Slater and his daughter were surprised that she did. Slater has gone from a joke to a popular enough guy to keep around because the fans know who he is and like him fairly well. That’s a nice place to be in and Slater will probably be around for a good while.
How has Slater fared in WWE? Will he ever get a big story again? Let us know in the comments below.
