As we reported earlier in the week, a fair few WWE Superstars have been released and we were anxiously hoping Aleister Black’s name would not be next on the list.
Black hasn’t been seen on WWE television since October of last year and with his wife, Thea Trinidad (Zelina Vega), being released in November many expected it was only a matter of time before he followed.
However, right before Smackdown went on the air this week, Black took to his personal Instagram to release a new viginette with highlights of his WWE career so far. Intertwined with the clips is Black saying:
“Forgive me Father, for I have sinned. It’s been four years since my last confession. Four years of perpetuating this lie about who I am and who I am not. But I seem to have stumbled into your woods once again, and this time I will heed the call. It is time to cull the herd.”
It’s been rumoured earlier in the week that Black is soon to return to WWE television, and this all but confirms it. We’ll keep you updated as soon as we know more!
