On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer was asked about whether or not the fact Paul Heyman is on SmackDown with Roman Reigns could positively impact how Aleister Black is used, with Heyman said to be a fan of the Dutchman.
However, Meltzer noted that Paul Heyman does not have that kind of power in the company anymore, and Vince McMahon frankly doesn’t see anything in Aleister Black, or Andrade for that matter:
“He doesn’t have that kind of power right now. If he had power, yeah, I could see it. But he does not have that power. And Vince does not see anything in Aleister Black, or Andrade, or any of those guys that when Heyman lost his position and I said the guys that are f**ked. The only one that ended up not being completely f**ked was Shayna because I guess they like the idea of Shayna and Nia Jax so she got brought back. But pretty much everybody else they’re with Bo Dallas in catering.”
