Following his release, Black took to Twitch and spoke his mind about his release and more. He said,

“Money in the Bank with AJ, when I stepped out of the dark and into the dark, that was the first time I did what I wanted to do. It got praised. Don’t get mad at our creative. They try their absolute hardest and there are good people working there. I’m very thankful for our creative and have had a good relationship with Bruce [Prichard]. He tried to protect me in a lot of situations. He wanted to get me out of the room. The consensus was ‘no one moves like him or has his intensity.'” (H/t Fightful for transcriptions)

Aleister believes that his style was a hybrid of traditional wrestling and new age striking. In the last five years, he’s proven to be one of the most influential strikers of this generation and will continue to do so.

The fans are speculating if he too will join All Elite Wrestling like the previously released wrestlers. Miro (AEW TNT Champion) and Cody Rhodes are prime examples of wrestlers who have reached the sky and beyond after being released by WWE.

All hope is not yet lost for Aleister Black because a wrestler as talented as him will have no difficulty finding work.
