Aleister Black was absent from WWE television for quite a few months as creative had no plans for him. Despite making a return on Friday Night Smackdown back in May and starting a new feud with Big E, Black was released by WWE. Then he showed up in AEW prior to any 90-day non-compete clause ending, because he only had 30-day non-compete clause thanks to a clerical error on WWE’s part.

Aleister Black previously detailed how the last two years of his time in WWE were like slow death and he had a lot of trouble dealing with WWE Creative on numerous aspects. After his AEW debut, he now goes by the name Malakai Black.

Malakai Black has been on a path of destruction since his debut, as he defeated the likes of Cody Rhodes and the entire Nightmare Family. He is still feuding with the Rhodes family and it has resulted in a lot of changes to his appearance, especially his eye.

While speaking on Giant FM Real Radio, Malakai Black talked about his current character in AEW. Black hinted at introducing changes to his character in the next two weeks.


“In the next two weeks, you’re going to see a very interesting change in the aesthetics and behavior within the character.”

It remains to be seen how Malakai Black’s character will undergo changes as he remains one of the most aesthetically unique stars in the AEW roster. We also wonder if he will somehow be involved at AEW Full Gear in some capacity or not.
