Out of all the recent WWE releases, one name has been the most active. Aleister Black was released from the company just as his new ‘Dark Father’ character was getting started, and he’s been vocal about being glad to be out of WWE. He’s taken to his wives (Thea Trinidad/Zelina Vega) Twitch account to refer to his last few years in WWE as “a slow death”. Aleister Black is likely dead, but Tommy End will rise again, and we might know where to expect him.
Tommy End Expected To Sign With All Elite Wrestling
First reported by Dave Meltzer in this week’s edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the expectation is that when the 90 day non-compete clause is up for Aleister Black, he’s going to sign with All Elite Wrestling. He would be using his old ring name of Tommy End, which he has already changed his social media handles back over to, and put out fresh merch for. Rebuilding that brand is just the first part, but a major debut in a company like AEW would be what really gets him going once again.
End has already expressed interest in matches with the likes of Jon Moxley in AEW, and he’d be a natural fit for their roster. He’s an all around great talent, as proven by his time in NXT and to a lesser extent on the WWE main roster. We could see him debut as early as All Out in September, which would be a big move for everyone involved. However, one roadblock comes in WWE wanting him back.
WWE Want Aleister Black Back At The Same Time
While WWE did just cut Aleister Black from his contract, they were reportedly quick to realize that they made a mistake. He was at the start of a new storyline, and set up a match with Big E in his last appearance. WWE is expected to offer him a new contract, which would likely be for less money than he was originally making.
We’ve seen WWE trying to do this with another recent release in Samoa Joe, with them likely getting him back for their NXT brand. WWE will have a hard time bringing Black back in given his comments following his release, but the door remains open. They clearly had plans for him, but with WWE who knows how long that would last.
