Aleister Black On Who Came Up With His Name In WWE NXT, Darkness Of Character

Former WWE NXT Champion Aleister Black was the guest on today’s Chasing Glory podcast to talk about various topics. Here are the highlights (H/T to WrestleZone):

Making The Character Darker:

I started implementing a little more darkness into the character and it became a little more cult leader type esque and it started resonating more and people were like, ‘Oh my God.’ This is what I need to be and I feel that everything I’ve done as Tommy End was setting myself up for Aleister Black.

Who Came Up With The Aleister Black Name:

It was a collaboration between myself and Triple H. We started shooting names back and forth and I think he saw what I was trying to do and then he shot me a name and I was like, ‘I don’t hate that, but can we put it in these letterings. Can we put it this way?’ It came out to be Aleister Black and I was like [snaps fingers], ‘That’s it. BINGO.’
