WWE shocked the world earlier today when released some major names from the roster including Braun Strowman, Lana and former NXT Champion Aleister Black.

The wrestling world is reacting to the surprising releases, and Aleister Black made his first comments after the news broke when he posted the following on Twitter:

“Im gathering my thoughts as this was a complete left field for me as obviously we just started the dark father character but this was it, thank you so much WWE universe for allowing me to create and give you small bits of myself.”

Aleister Black signed with WWE in 2016 and he came up through NXT where he won the NXT Championship and the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.

Black last wrestled on TV back in October of 2020, but WWE started airing vignettes for his return back in April. He returned to TV last month when he appeared on SmackDown and attacked Big E out of nowhere, but WWE never followed up on the storyline.
