Never say never. With so many wrestlers in WWE, there are always going to be some people who do not get the attention that some feel they deserve. Every now and then a wrestler winds up staying on the sidelines for long stretches of time, which may not seem like WWE’s best moves. That is currently taking place in WWE, but things might be about to change.

One of the more surprising and frustrating situations in WWE over the last few months has been that of Aleister Black. Despite having one of the best looks and most unique presentations in all of WWE, Black has not wrestled a match since October and has apparently been dealing with some injuries. It seems unlikely that he will be wrestling again, but now things might be changing.

According to Mike Johnson of, Black has been training at the WWE Performance Center again in recent weeks, though there is no guarantee that Black will be returning to WWE television anytime soon. Black is reportedly being held out of the ring due to not being someone Paul Heyman wanted to push during his time as Executive Director of Monday Night Raw but not one of Vince McMahon’s favorites. There is no word on when he might be returning to the ring or television.

Black could be a great asset for either show. Check out what he can do:

FULL MATCH - Aleister Black vs. Tommaso Ciampa - NXT Title Match: WWE NXT, July 25, 2018

Aleister Black vs. Seth Rollins: Raw, July 20, 2020

Aleister Black vs. Buddy Murphy: Raw, Dec. 30, 2019

Opinion: Black continues to be one of the more confusing situations I can remember seeing in a long time in WWE. At the end of the day, Black could have all of the talent in the world but it isn’t going to matter if he is not allowed to get back on television. He is someone who could do something good on either show, but until WWE is willing to give him the chance, it is not going to matter.
