Backstage News On Black Taurus’ Name & Gimmick Change In AEW



As we previously reported here on eWn, AEW has signed former AAA talent Black Taurus under a new name and gimmick.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide has made things difficult for Taurus, and this may have damaged the relationship on both sides.

According to AAA, Taurus used to be a show opener in Arena Mexico before receiving his name and gimmick. He was then pushed and gained popularity.

The Mexican wrestler worked in AAA as Taurus from 2015-2016, before going to Lucha Libre Elite as Black Taurus. He then registered the name and attire before returning to AAA in 2018.

This led to Black Taurus’ popularity in the United States, particularly after he began to appear for Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. The luchador then became a regular for TNA Wrestling.

Taurus’ side states that he asked for more money and since AAA told him their current market couldn’t support a raise, he wanted to sign with AEW.

AEW tried to arrange a deal to keep the Black Taurus name and gimmick, but AAA sources suggest that Taurus himself was against the idea.

Instead of fighting a legal battle, AEW President Tony Khan elected to make a change.
