Aleister Black jumped on his wife’s Twitch stream to talk about his release from WWE with fans.
Talking casually and opening up, Black said that the reason he was given for his release was because of budget cuts and explained how the past two years were a “slow death” to him.
He said that he created so many storylines and thrown so much stuff at creative but it was difficult to get the ball rolling. While people in the back found him very intriguing, everything he pitched didn’t go anywhere unfortunately. He jumped at the defense of the creative team, saying they try hard and are good at their job but it’s not just down to them.
“I have so many good memories,” Black said, adding that he cannot wait to see what he can do without the WWE shackles on him. He described the latest version of his gimmick as a devil with memory loss, and this was supposed to be his shot but it wasn’t meant to be. “It’s bittersweet, I owe everything to WWE,” he continued.
Black thanked Vince McMahon, Triple H, Bruce Prichard, and Paul Heyman, nothing that both Heyman and Prichard going to bat for him so many times in the past.
Black also described Roman Reigns as one of the “best f*cking locker room leaders I’ve ever had,” while putting over other Superstars such as Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, The Usos, etc.
