WWE announced this morning that Heath Slater was injured at Saturday night’s WWE Live Event in Bangor, Maine when a gash developed over his right eye during a match against Titus O’Neil. The contest was immediately stopped and O’Neil was declared the winner.
WWE ringside physician Dr. Stephen Daquino, who treated Slater, relayed the following to WWE.com: “Heath has a six centimeter laceration above his right eye. It was quite open, right down to the bone. He got 18 sutures and hopefully that will close it up.”
After the show, Slater tweeted a photo of the gash.
