Former WWE NXT Champion Aleister Black was the guest on today’s Chasing Glory podcast to talk about various topics. Here are the highlights (H/T to WrestleZone):
Making The Character Darker:
I started implementing a little more darkness into the character and it became a little more cult leader type esque and it started resonating more and people were like, ‘Oh my God.’ This is what I need to be and I feel that everything I’ve done as Tommy End was setting myself up for Aleister Black.
Who Came Up With The Aleister Black Name:
It was a collaboration between myself and Triple H. We started shooting names back and forth and I think he saw what I was trying to do and then he shot me a name and I was like, ‘I don’t hate that, but can we put it in these letterings. Can we put it this way?’ It came out to be Aleister Black and I was like [snaps fingers], ‘That’s it. BINGO.’
