Aleister Black is a famous WWE Superstar and he recently spoke about his relationship with WWE CEO Vince McMahon. He stated that his last two years in WWE were like a slow death for him. He spoke about this on Twitter. Black was actually a very talented wrestler but things didn’t work well for him in WWE, even though he had a terrific start at NXT after teaming up with Ricochet.
Aleister Black on His Final Years in WWE
“In all my conversations I’ve ever had with Vince, he was always very positive. I have a good relationship with Vince,” Black stated. “I always told him how I felt.
He always respected that about me. He always praised me on my creativity and my ability to have manners and respect but still being honest with him about how I felt. You never truly know why things end the way they did. All I can tell you from my point of view and the word that I was always given was that Vince was always pretty high on me.
I did well on television. “It was just that we could never really nail down what it is what we wanted Aleister to be on the main roster vs. what he was on NXT, and where that problem allied, I don’t know. At the same time, you have to realize when I was under [Paul] Heyman’s wing, Heyman fought tough and nail for me, but at the end of the day, when a decision is made, a decision is made.
Heyman couldn’t protect everyone, and he tried his best and I tried me best”. Black then spoke about the promos that he cut after the Brand Split in 2019. He spoke about the creative control that he had. “One of the things with the room promos, I didn’t have a lot of control over those,” Aleister Black noted.
“I was still new on the main roster, and I didn’t want to be that guy that complained about everything. One of the things I could have control over is the idea that Aleister had this small ability to look into the future.
He had precognitive abilities, so I would use my opponents' ring gear, their colors, in my background. When I wrestled The Singh Brothers, I had pink in the background, and with Buddy [Murphy], I had white and yellowish light in the background, so that would hint at my next opponents”.
