However, Aleister Black is the only one who came ahead and had a hearty one on one conversation with fans on Twitch. The ‘Dutch Destroyer’ addressed the fans and spoke of a lot of things. He even had a ton of praise for Vince McMahon, Triple H, and the entire WWE creative.

Aleister Black reveals he was supposed to win WWE US Championship

Speaking of creative, Black revealed there was a time WWE was considering him to be the next United States Champion. However, these plans were nixed as Vince McMahon didn’t want it to happen.

It wasn’t because McMahon was disillusioned with Black but because he wanted the Dutch Superstar to win his first championship on the main roster in the presence of fans.

Black said, “There was a moment where I was supposed to win, I think it was the U.S. Title, but then Vince’s consensus was I don’t want to have him win his first title in front of no audience.” He continued, “So there was always good stuff. There’s a lot of good stories, a lot of almost happened moments, so I can’t be negative.” H/t WrestlingInc

Aleister Black is a top Superstar who has an extremely strong character, not to forget his impeccable in-ring skills. He is the perfect package for any promotion out there.

And we genuinely believe there will be some tough competition while signing Black aka Tommy End to a contract.

Black has already made moves for his future. He has reverted back to his old ring name – Tommy End. And we’re sure he will use the 90-day no-compete clause period to build a full-proof plan for his future.
