Aleister Black did not have many storylines during his time on the main roster but there were certainly a number of ideas pitched for him.
Speaking on Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions, Black recalled pitches for him to work with The Undertaker, Samoa Joe, and Brock Lesnar. The pitch for The Undertaker would have seen Black get involved in the Boneyard match from WrestleMania 36. Here is the quote, courtesy of Wrestling Inc.:
“One of the cool pitches for me was that for a moment when I had that match with AJ [Styles], one of the things leading up to WrestleMania was that during the end of my match with AJ, The Undertaker appeared and helped me and saved me from the beatdown The Good Brothers gave me. One of the pitches was at WrestleMania, it was going to be the other way around. So, it was AJ and Taker, and one of the pitches was that towards the end of that match, the Good Brothers would come out or something to that extent, and I would be the one to help Taker. The fact that they even considered that was like, wow! It was very cool.
Black also revealed Paul Heyman’s pitch for him to work with Lesnar and Samoa Joe:
“One of Heyman’s ideas was to have Samoa Joe or Brock Lesnar come into the room at the time that would eventually lead to an interaction between me, Brock Lesnar or Samoa Joe. I would cut a promo in this room, and Lesnar would come in through the darkness and choke me out and stuff.”
Aleister Black was released by WWE on June 2, 2021.
