Aleister Black was released from WWE today and many fans are upset. Others are excited about the idea of Tommy End coming back and stretching his creative legs on a much bigger stage outside of Vince McMahon’s reach.

Braun Strowman, Aleister Black, Lana, Ruby Riott, Buddy Murphy, and Santana Garrett were all cut today. Some of those people wanted to leave the company. Aleister Black was shocked to receive his release. He was also told that “budget cuts” was the reason for those firings.

One fan tweeted out to say that he is “here for” the idea of Aleister Black getting creative freedom. Black, who has already changed his Twitter handle back to Tommy End, replied to say, “So am I.”

Black also tweeted out to say, “Guys i’m not mad, at all. Let’s have a talk about it. Share some stories with me! Come hang out on Twitch.” This included a link to Zelina Vega’s Twitch profile. She was online and Black was with her fielding questions.


One of the things he discussed pertained to the intention of his character in WWE. It was described as the devil with memory loss as Sean Sapp tweeted out.

Tommy End referred to Aleister Black’s character as “the devil with memory loss, he knew he’d done something bad but couldn’t remember what,” which sounds way bad ass.

We will have to see what Aleister Black does next in the pro wrestling world. He is married and stationed in the United States. It would make logical sense if Tony Khan’s phone went off all afternoon with texts from people on his roster begging for him to bring in Tommy End.

Will Aleister Black receive creative freedom in AEW? Sound off in the comments!

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
