Heath Slater discussed Jinder Mahal losing his WWE Championship to AJ Styles on this weekís Smackdown, opening his own school and more in a new interview with Wrestling Inc. Highlights are below:

On Jinder Mahal losing his WWE Championship to AJ Styles: ďI didnít see it, but I heard about it. And I mean, WWE Champion for six months, heck yeah! I mean, why not? And he lost to ĎThe Phenomenal Oneí and as you know, AJís great and Iím sure it was an awesome match and I will watch it. But yeah, it was a damn shame because I was hoping he would go for a year with it.Ē

On the title changing hands on Smackdown for the first time since 2003: ďNothing surprises me anymore if you want me to be honest. Itís one of those things where Iím sure the world was surprised and happy, because Jinder is a great heel. Anything can happen in the WWE thatís just how it is, thatís what makes it fun and spontaneous and unpredictable. You just never know.Ē

On opening his own wrestling school: ďEvery wrestler always has the idea of wanting to have his own school. So pretty much it just came to me when I first walked into the first school I went to. Getting to learn the basics, seeing how itís run, and then itís one of those things where you just want one yourself one day. Thatís how it happened with me, I always wanted one, thatís what it is. Iíve always wanted one and know Iíve got one, so Iím happy.Ē

On how far the school has progressed: ďRight now we have kids coming in at the end of November, December, and then like four signing up next year. So right now we have six in there, doing their thing, but we should have around 12 or 13 by the start of next year, something like that. So itís going, but I mean it always starts out slow. You gotta it noticed and have people hear about it and when they hear about it, they get interested and when they get interested, they might want to do it. So itís just one of those things.Ē
