• Aleister Black Hints At A Possible Gimmick Change
Aleister Black hasn’t been the luckiest wrestler on RAW recently.
On last week’s show, he got his arm injured by Seth Rollins and Murphy, and on this week’s show, they injured his eye. He was reportedly written off TV using that eye injury.
As we noted earlier, there was a report by talkSPORT, which stated that Vince McMahon isn’t a fan of Black’s gimmick.
Earlier today, Black took to Instagram to hint a character change, by saying that he has to re-write 4 years of his own history. The picture he posted with it shows one of his eyes bleeding, with horn on one side of his head.
“And now I must re-write 4 years of my own history by getting rid of that weakness. The same weakness that caused this betrayal, this is where my accountability ends, and yours starts.”
It could be possible that WWE wrote Black off TV to repackage him.
