• Reason Behind Aleister Black Not Wrestling, Update On Wrestlers Paul Heyman Is Pushing For Backstage
According to the Wrestling Observer, RAW wrestler Aleister Black is being given some time off from in-ring action because he’s dealing with a knee injury.
Black appeared on this week’s RAW in a backstage vignette because they still want to keep him on TV, despite not being able to compete.
You can watch it below:
The Wrestling Observer also noted that RAW Executive Director Paul Heyman is no longer pushing for Cedric Alexander backstage, as he’s now focusing on Buddy Murphy, Ricochet and Humberto Carrillo:
“Cedric’s problem is that you can only push so many guys at once and he was the guy until he wasn’t the guy and now he’s really not the guy.
Now it’s like Buddy Murphy who wasn’t even on the show, Ricochet, and Humberto Carrillo are the guys on the ascent unless they get screwed up like Cedric did when someone decided he shouldn’t be on the ascent.”
