Aleister Black who is going by the name of Malakai Black in AEW right now recently appeared on The Squared Circle Pit Podcast where he spoke on the issues he had with the booking decisions of WWE. He said;
“That [joining AEW] was the immediate thought process. I was sick of it, even before everything went down. I loved my time in NXT, but I felt I did nothing of importance on the main roster. It was too much bipolar 50-50 booking, they would push me and pull me off TV.
“Honestly, that’s [50-50 booking] the entire product right now. There’s nothing really consistent. Everything changes week to week, or is done to the point of beating it to death.”
