Just hours after the news of his WWE release, the former Aleister Black spoke on Twitch reacting to the news of being cut and time in WWE.

Just hours after the news of his WWE release, the former Aleister Black spoke on Twitch reacting to the news and reflecting on his time in the company.

Black started off the stream noting “I am not sad, I am not depressed” but acknowledged he will probably have some bad days but felt positive about his overall tenure.

The reason he was given was ‘budget cuts’ but said he doesn’t know if that was the real reason or not.

Black was excited about the ‘Dark Father’ character with the Big E. feud set to begin this Friday on SmackDown.

He noted that Paul Heyman had pushed hard and fought ‘tooth-and-nail’ for him during his time there.

“The last two years were a slow death” but thankful for the platform but now the shackles are off. He said there are things he could be angry about but that comes with every job and didn’t want to be negative.

Black would have loved to work with Bray Wyatt, who he said is someone that fights tooth-and-nail when they try to change aspects of him. Black is thrilled they are pushing Apollo Crews as an example of someone that deserves it.

He emphasized the hard work of the creative staff and that a lot of good people are on the team and work hard.

He indicated that he fought to preserve certain aspects of his character they tried to change.

Black was very negative about online reporting and claiming most of it is false. He acknowledged that he did request a move back to NXT but rather than it being ‘shut down’, Vince McMahon liked the idea but wanted him to first try this new character on the main roster.

He is contemplating opening a wrestling school, which was an idea he had prior to his release.

Obviously, he doesn’t have the rights to ‘Aleister Black’ but confirmed it on the stream.

At one point, there was discussion of him winning the United States Championship, but Vince McMahon didn’t want him to win his first championship without fans.

They had just completed a new theme for Black, which had not aired.
