WWE News: WWE wants to keep Aleister away from AEW
According to a PWInsider report, there have been consistent talks about Black and the urge to bring him back. The top executives in the company are rethinking their decision of releasing Black and have admitted that letting him go was a premature decision.
Black is currently serving the mandatory 90-day non-compete clause, along with Braun Strowman, Santana Garrett, Lana, Buddy Murphy, and Ruby Riott. All these superstars got released on June 2.
Recently, Samoa Joe got rehired by the company. The former United States Champion was among those superstars who got released in April after Wrestlemania 37. But the Samoan Submission machine was rehired by the company, and he showed up this past week on WWE NXT.
WWE might be thinking the same for Aleister Black, and maybe that is why they don’t want him to lose to AEW.
