• Reason Behind WWE Not Allowing Aleister Black To Work WWE Super ShowDown 2019
As we noted before, SmackDown wrestler Aleister Black won’t be working the WWE Super ShowDown 2019 PPV in Saudi Arabia.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, Black isn’t being allowed to work the show because of his tattoos:
“This was not his choice. This was a choice made for him. I don’t know if it was made by the Saudi Arabian government or it was made by WWE because they didn’t want to offend the Saudi Arabian government.
The deal with him is that his tattoos apparently have some religious connotations that the belief is will offend the host of the show so they don’t want him going. That’s the Aleister Black story.”
