Malakai Black is one of the shining new stars of AEW. While Zelina Vega is making strides after going back to WWE, Black has been having complete blast at AEW. His journey at AEW will be a great experience for him as well as his fans.

Black seems to have one complaint from his time at WWE, which is that he didn’t have any creative control. Black had strong trajectory at NXT where his feud with Velveteen Dream is considered one of the pro-wrestling’s finest. He had a great feud with Murphy, which soon devolved into a huge feud with blurred lines. Sitting on the sidelines for while, Black finally found a way out with AEW.

Malakai Black spoke to Bleacher Report, where Black revealed that he is ready to put his two-decades worth of experience in pro-wrestling to good use. Black stated that his plan reached completion after coming to AEW.

I had a plan, and I think the only place in my head where this plan would come to fulfillment is AEW. The company is young, fresh, and exciting. It brings an edge that professional wrestling has sorely needed. This character that I have clearly has a kind of edge to it that I could only portray in AEW. My agent communicated my thoughts to Tony Khan and he loved it. We had a quick conversation and then a long two- or three-day period where we were communicating a lot. The rest is history and the impact has been seen.


Black added that he is also enjoying full creative control down at AEW. While he didn’t have full control as Aleister Black, Malakai Black is looking forward to use himself to his full potential.

My creative input is almost 100 percent. I will send my ideas to Tony [Khan], and he will either give his thoughts on it or sign off on it. The locker room itself is absolutely great. It’s a group of people who will fight tooth and nail to get things done.

The AEW Superstar recently expressed that he has no desire to go back to WWE. He also opened up about CM Punk & Bryan Danielson coming to AEW. Black is ready to return on next Wednesday when he faces off against the Nightmare Family, and fights Brock Anderson.
