Aleister Black Opens Up About Having Support From Triple H & Paul Heyman

Aleister Black is an unusual entity in the world of WWE, but that hasn't kept him from having two of the most heralded minds in the industry today from being in his corner.

Speaking with Sports Illustrated, Aleister Black opened up about his relationship with Triple H and how “The Game” has always believed in him and given him the freedom to be his authentic self.

“The good thing about what Hunter did, or as I call him, ‘Boss,’ he believed in me and he never tried to change me,” said Black. “He told me, ‘I signed you for you. Don’t be something you’re not. Never forget that.’”

Continuing on, Black would also speak about his relationship with WWE Raw Executive Director, Paul Heyman.

“I’ve always been a little bit of an outcast myself, and I don’t say that to be edgy,” said Black. “It’s the way I lived my life. Paul Heyman knows what it’s like to be different. Paul was once different, Paul was once the outcast. We don’t have the conformity bone, not that there's anything wrong with it. It just wasn’t for us. Paul saw that in me. Paul Heyman is known for his eccentric approach and his aggressive approach to this business. He’s revolutionized professional wrestling. Whether people want to admit that or not, Paul Heyman is a crucial and vital part of how professional wrestling and independent professional wrestling is shaped. He makes you think, he makes you advance, and he makes you a better version with what you already have.”

Aleister Black will be one of the 12 WWE Superstars who will battle throughout WWE headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut in chase of a Money in the Bank briefcase.

Fightful will have live coverage of the event beginning at 6 p.m. Eastern on Sunday, May 10, 2020.
