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 a 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 a 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. That feud is done with and he is now feuding with the Varsity Blondes.

While speaking on Casual Conversations with the Classic, Malakai Black talked about future opponents in AEW. Black revealed that he wants a piece of Bryan Danielson and CM Punk in AEW.


“There’s so many talented people, but also I feel like it’s a perfect platform for myself and Bryan Danielson to work, it’s a perfect platform for me and Bobby Fish to work, it’s the perfect platform for perhaps me and Punk at some point.”

We will have to wait and see how AEW will continue to book Malakai Black and whether he will square off against either Bryan Danielson or CM Punk in the future or not.
