The search for search for a heavy Higgs boson decaying into the semi-leptonic WW final state is presented in the high mass range (300 GeV - 1000 GeV) using the ATLAS detector. These results are based on the 2012 proton-proton dataset provided by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $21\ fb^{-1}$ at center of mass energy of $\sqrt{s} = 8\ TeV$. The search covers both Standard Model interpretations and theories beyond the Standard Model which predict a second Higgs in addition to the already discovered resonance at 125 GeV.
