Aleister Black had very good results at NXT, where he even won the NXT championship and became the backbone of the black and gold brand after making his debut there in 2017.
For comparison, his main list required a lot, and after very simple booking decisions, Aleister Black was finally released by the company in June of this year.
Due to WWE’s clerical error, Aleister Black was able to make his AEW debut more than a month after his release. Aleister Black stunned fans and pro-wrestlers when he debuted at AEW Road Rager last week and became known as Malakai Black.
When talking Concept with Chris Van Vliet, Buddy Murphy talked about his former opponent Malakay Black’s debut at the AEW, and the WWE threw the ball along with Black.
“It’s great that he’s going there,” he said. He does his job and does what he wants, right? I feel like WWE dropped the ball with him. I’ve been in the ring with him, I know first hand how good he is. I am very happy for him. He didn’t tell me, he kept it very low. I was talking to him on his debut day and he didn’t tell me. Only good things for him in the future. “
Aleister Black is definitely doing very well at AEW, Buddy Murphy has been working very hard since coming out at WWE last month, and has hinted that he will face Aleister Black at AEW. Murphy’s first game since WWE was also announced recently.
