Earlier this month Aleister Black was attacked and found unconscious in a parking lot following an episode of NXT.
It was not shown who attacked Black, but there were a plethora of suspects in the area. The Undisputed Era, Johnny Gargano, and Heavy Machinery were all seen in the area of the attack.
The attack was done to write off Black from WWE TV. Initially he was expected to participate in last night’s NXT TakeOver Brooklyn 4 main event for the NXT Title.

Last night at TakeOver, EC3 suffered a loss to Velveteen Dream in singles action. He was interviewed by Mike Rome afterwards backstage.
