After several months of floundering on the main roster in WWE, former WWE Superstar Aleister Black was released by the company back in June of this year, much to the shock of fans and pro wrestlers alike.
Aleister Black shocked the pro wrestling world when he made his debut earlier this month on an episode of AEW Dynamite. Going by the name Malakai Black, he laid out both Cody Rhodes and Arn Anderson, signalling his intentions.
While speaking to The Wrestling Perspective Podcast, Malakai Black talked about Vince McMahon’s hilarious reaction to McMahon wearing jeans during the taping of last year’s Money In The Bank ladder match.
“It had something to do with the fact that he had a really busy day. And he felt that he was a bit overworked and he thought ‘well hey, I’m in my own environment so today I’m not going to be too formal.’ I mean he’s still always in his suit, he always looks really, really well dressed up. But he was wearing jeans and I wasn’t expecting it. I remember going ‘jeans sir?’ And he went ‘ugh, it’s one of those days.”
With Malakai Black now finally in AEW, his feud with Cody Rhodes continues to be built. Black will be facing off against Cody Rhodes at AEW Homecoming on August 4th of this year in his in-ring debut. We will have to wait and see how he will fare in the match.
