Ahead of his return to the ring, WWE star Aleister Black has shown off his impressive physique and discussed his body transformation.
Black’s last match for WWE took place in October 2020 on Raw. When he returns to the ring, he will be a force to be reckoned with.
The former NXT Champion took to Instagram to show off his incredible frame. He revealed that over the past 7 months, he’s been taking his nutrition more seriously.
Explaining that he’s built for functionality, Black stated that he now weighs in at a lean 196lbs.

The caption reads:
“For the past 7 months in the lab working with @joshuadfrye who approached my nutrition from a different perspective than I’ve ever done. Especially as a plant based athlete. Starting from a depressed 217lbs to at the lowest 191 lbs. and now back up to 196lbs.
“Working and training online using guidance and seminars from good people like @mmashredded and @liambadco for conditioning. And taking pages from @juggernautcoaching and @fla_hayes for S&C. I’ve never been a physical “monster” but I’ve always pride myself of having the conditioning of a pro. I’ve always looked at what I do and dissected it into what is functional Vs. What wouldn’t work for me.
“As a kid I would find people that would teach me breakdance because it would give me rhythm, athleticism and footwork that I needed for kickboxing that I would later apply to wrestling and Sports Entertainment. This was the same mind set I needed to make some changes. If anything to take away here is whatever you wish to accomplish always dissect what it is made of and strengthen all those attributes so that they enhance the overall goal.”
Black returned to our screens last month in a pre-recorded video package. He has made several appearances on WWE TV in eerie vignettes. While an Aleister Black segment was planned for last week’s episode of SmackDown, it was removed from the show at the last minute.
Black is married to former WWE star Zelina Vega. A new report has revealed that Vega has returned to the WWE Performance Center for training.
