Aleister Black on his WWE main roster call-up: “it was a last minute decision”

WWE SmackDown star Aleister Black reflected on being called up to the WWE main roster while talking with Sheamus on his Celtic Warrior Workouts.

It turns out that the highly touted prospect wasn’t originally supposed to be called up from NXT at the time. Black made his Raw debut in February by taking on Elias in a singles match.

This was after Triple H announced how four NXT talents will make their main roster TV debuts. Those talents were Tommaso Ciampa, Johnny Gargano, Black, and Ricochet.

“I wasn’t scheduled to be called up. It was a last minute decision,” said Black. He would continue by bringing up how he was informed of the call up while taking a nap before an NXT live event by WWE Performance Center Head Coach Matt Bloom. He added that it was on very short notice.
