In recent months, WWE has pushed former NXT Champion Aleister Black more heavily on television.
For months, WWE had these backstage segments where Black would be sitting in a room asking anyone to knock on his door for a fight. After no one came knocking, fans started making fun of it.
WWE turned things around when they started putting Black inside of the squared circle and let him compete. Since then, he has been winning squash matches on television.
Monday’s episode of Raw from the Toyota Arena in Ontario, California was no different as he picked up a win over Akira Tozawa. Post-match, Black cut another cryptic promo.
WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley took to Twitter after the show where he commented on Black’s rise in WWE. He wrote the following:
“I think @WWEAleister is just one major feud away from making a big jump up the @WWE ladder….but the right opponent is everything!”
