Aleister Black was among the names to be released by WWE today.
Fightful Select reports that many people behind-the-scenes in WWE that were part of putting together the storyline with Black and Big E did not know Black was being cut.
WWE creative team writers were recently told to stop making pitches for Black, but were not told why. The feud had no long-term endgame.
Black said on Thea Trinidad’s Twitch gaming account this afternoon that budget cuts were the reason for his departure.
