Indications are that the long-absent Aleister Black will soon make his WWE return. As previously reported, black has been off of the air for months while he recuperated from unspecified injuries. Although the releases of Zelina Vega and Andrade made it very iffy on whether or not Black would return to the WWE at all.
Vega, who worked as Andrade’s manager for several years, is married to Aleister Black. Vega was fired by the WWE recently, the reported reason for the dismissal being that she launched an OnlyFans account after the WWE announced an apparent (and unclear) ban on WWE superstars using third party services such as Twitch, YouTube and Cameo.
This, along with reports that Aleister Black was not well liked by Vince McMahon, led many fans to believe he would not be with the company much longer.
So when the WWE announced the releases of 10 superstars (including Samoa Joe, Kalisto, Bo Dallas and Mojo Rawley), Black fans were pleasantly surprised not to find his name on the list.
A few days later, Black posted a video on his Instagram which appears to foreshadow a WWE return with a new storyline.
Details are scarce, but reports indicate that Black will release a series of vignettes loosely based on his childhood before his return. As of this writing, there is no clarification on if the vignettes will be based on his real childhood or his fictional character childhood.
