A WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) wrestler might have the strength to beat up other people but he was unable to free himself from an airplane bathroom, according to a video that was uploaded to the Internet.

Wrestler Curtis Axel made fun of his colleague, 34-year-old Heath Slater of West Virginia, as he was locked inside the plane bathroom while flying to a game in Miami, Florida.

During the flight, Slater got up to use the bathroom.

When he locked the door, the knob fell off.

Slater, whose real name is Heath Wallace Miller, could not believe what was happening.

After using the bathroom, Slater got up and tried to leave but he was unable to open the door.

He began banging on the door to alert people to his predicament.

Soon, members of the flight crew came to rescue Slater from the locked bathroom.

A technician removed the hinges of the door and forced the lock open.

Axel told the airline employee to keep Slater locked in the bathroom.

“Don’t let him out. He’s a vicious animal,” Axel said.

After several moments, Axel told Slater: “stop playing around and open the door.”

When Slater was finally freed, he said: “Oh Baby. I’m finally out. It was getting so hot in there.”

Slater made it to the WWE game, where he lost to Braun Strowman.

The video of the ordeal was uploaded to Instagram, where it went viral.

Heath Miller is an American professional wrestler and actor.

He is currently working with the WWE, where he performs on the Raw brand under the ring name Heath Slater.
