WWE superstar lifts up flood victims in West Virginia


Sophia (WVVA) He's the Pineville native known for throwing down his opponents in the ring of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). But on Thursday, Heath Slater, AKA Heath Miller, returned to West Virginia to help flood victims bounce back. 

The wrestler started the day loading supplies at the Sophia Fire Dept. Bingo Hall and then left with volunteers to deliver items to flood victims in Clay County.

Miller grew up in Pineville and graduated from Wyoming East High School in 2002. He said he just wanted to give back to the state that helped shape him on Thursday. 

"To me, it was just heartbreaking to see the pictures, and knowing that I had time off to come up here and try to put some smiles on kids faces and uplift some people...I think I can help too," 

Flood relief efforts continue tonight for the wrestler at Muncheez Bar and Grill on Harper Road, where Miller will attend a benefit concert for flood victims.

Matt Mullins and The Bringdowns, Clinton Scott from Pink Casino, and Greg Lilly from Motion Theater are set to perform. The concert begins at 8 p.m.
