That would explain a lot. With so many wrestlers on the WWE roster, it can be a little bit tricky to find a way to get them onto television. WWE has a lot of wrestlers who are almost never able to make it onto either Monday Night raw or SmackDown and that can make things rather confusing at times. Now we might know why one wrestler has not been appearing as of late.

One of the bigger mysteries going in WWE as of late is the status of Aleister Black, who has not wrestled for the company since October. That is quite a long time for a wrestler with as much talent as Black but for some reason he has been stuck on the sideline for several months now. There is nothing to indicate when he will be back, but now we know a bit more about his absence.

According to Wrestling Observer Radio, Black is dealing with some minor injuries. It is not clear how long Black has been dealing with the injuries or whether is is able to return to the ring. However, the injuries are not what is keeping him out of action, but rather WWE not pushing the people Paul Heyman supported during his time as Executive Director of Monday Night Raw. There is nothing to suggest that Black will be back in the ring at any point in the near future.

Black is a rather talented name to leave on the sidelines. Check out what he can do when he gets the chance:

FULL MATCH - Aleister Black vs. Murphy: WWE TLC 2019

FULL MATCH - Aleister Black vs. AJ Styles – No Disqualification Match: WWE Elimination Chamber 2020

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

Opinion: This is one of the most WWE things that I can remember hearing in recent years and I am not even remotely surprised. WWE has a bad tendency to just give up on people and let them sit around for months rather than just letting them try something else. There are so many wrestlers on the company’s payroll and for some reason WWE is comfortable to let them do nothing. It seems like a waste of money, but WWE has enough to waste.
