• How Was Aleister Black Able To Make His AEW Debut Just A Month After His WWE Release?
Aleister Black was released from WWE in June and he made his All Elite Wrestling debut during tonight’s AEW Road Rager special.
According to PWInsider, Black had a 30-day non-compete clause instead of the usual 90-day non-compete clause, because WWE didn’t change his contract when they brought him up to the main roster from NXT (NXT wrestlers usually have a 30-day non-compete clause).
This resulted in Black being free to join whichever company if wanted just after 30 days of his release:
“So, what can only be described as a bad clerical error allowed him to be free and clear in time for the first episode of AEW Dynamite on the road and surprise everyone.”
His new name is Malakai Black, and he took out Arn Anderson & Cody Rhodes with Black Mass on tonight’s show.
