Reason Behind Aleister Black’s Absence in WWE

Aleister Black is one of the superstars who has been absent from WWE television for quite some time.

Black’s last feud happened against Kevin Owens and he last performed in December 2019 in an episode of Monday Night Raw.

Following the controversial release of his real-life wife, Zelina Vega, fans speculated that this will also lead to Aleister’s departure from the company.

However, Mike Johnson of PWInsider says that the reason Black hasn’t appeared on WWE programming recently is that the company wants him to rebut.

“I was told he was purposely pulled from television so he come back and have a big dramatic debut for SmackDown, and it just hasn’t happened.”

He joined WWE’s main roster in February 2019 and established a tag team with Ricochet. The duo even challenged for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship at WrestleMania 36 but was unsuccessful in winning it.
