Aleister Black has apparently turned heel on WWE Raw but we don’t know why. He’s been locked in a feud with Kevin Owens ever since getting his eye injured by Buddy Murphy.
However, as Kevin Owens stated on WWE Raw last night, Black has never really explained why he had a change in attitude. Black was a guest on WWE Raw Talk and finally explained why he attacked Kevin Owens.
Aleister Black said it was Kevin Owens’ negligence was the reason his eye was hurt in the first place.
“It seems the entire WWE Universe can’t catch a night’s sleep because I haven’t explained myself. Kevin’s a family man, right? Wife, kids, everything. You see the thing is, my father was a very cruel man. But not to the level of cruelty that Kevin has for people like me, and the negligence he shows people like me.
“I feel Kevin’s a fraud. Kevin uses one word and it clears him of everything he’s done. Kevin is known to throw his friends, people around him under the bus. But he uses the word ‘family.’ He gave his family up in terms of why he couldn’t be there, why this happened. And the entire WWE Universe forgives him – and makes me the bad guy for attacking him. Is that sufficient, do you think?”
So, Black is blaming Owens for not saving him. I guess the other 9000 people who were backstage and did nothing are forgiven? Whatever the case, Black and Owens are capable of having a good series of matches.
Of course, it doesn’t matter what I think. It only matters what Vince McMahon thinks and rumors are he’s not high on Black.
