One of the stranger decisions WWE has made in recent months is leaving Aleister Black on the sidelines. For some reason, Black has not wrestled a match since October and has been stuck sitting in catering ever since. It seems to be that Vince McMahon just does not like him but there is also a chance that it has something to do with Black’s wife Thea Trinidad being released. This has been an odd situation, but it might be coming to an end.
According to PWInsider.com, WWE has begun filming promos for Black’s return to television. It is not clear when Black will return, though he was sent from Monday Night Raw to SmackDown in 2020 WWE Draft. He has yet to make his SmackDown debut though, as his first match took place before the Draft aired. There is no word on what Black will be doing or who he will be feuding with when he returns.
Black, 35 years old, is a former NXT Champion but has yet to win a title on the main roster. Along with Keith Lee, Black is the only former NXT Champion to have been called up to the main roster full time without winning a championship. Since his debut on Monday Night Raw in 2019, Black has floated around from feud to feud without much in the way of a signature win.
Black can certainly go. Check out his time on the main roster:
