Aleister Black was released from the WWE earlier this week. This came after he had been part of several vignettes and then appeared on an episode of Smackdown a few weeks ago to start a program with Big E.
The company even created new theme music for Black as they were preparing for his return. Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that it’s unknown how far along the process for the song went.
It’s not known whether Black’s release or if the other cuts will affect the talks to bring Zelina Vega back to the company. However, it was said bringing Zelina back was still planned as of this week.
