• AEW Superstar Says He Won’t Return To WWE
In a recent interview with Old School WWF Legend Sean Waltman (The 1-2-3 Kid / X-Pac), former WWE Superstar Aleister Black, who is currently wrestling for Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling under the name Malakai Black, was asked if he will eventually end up returning to WWE at some point in the future.
Here’s what the former NXT Champion had to say:
“I think AEW is making really cool waves. It’s a great company to be a part of, and I think I came in at the right time.
I don’t see myself going back to WWE, and it’s not out of spite. That’s just because I feel this is a right move for me. This is a better position for me.”
