• What Vince McMahon Doesn’t Like About Aleister Black As A Wrestler
As we noted earlier, there have been reports online stating that WWE CEO Vince McMahon has given up on RAW wrestler Aleister Black.
Contrary to those reports, talkSPORT is reporting that McMahon hasn’t given up on Black, and he’s also a huge fan of the guy, but he has a little problem with his character.
“Vince is a huge fan of the performer – and of Tommy. Size. Agility. Skill. But he is worried the character is a gimmick and will limit him.
Black drank the Heyman kool aid’ – as many, many have before – and was disappointed when Brock Lesnar’s advocate departed a top position on RAW.”
It’s safe to say that WWE may be giving Black a character change if they plan to push him in the future.
