Aleister Black has been in the news lately after debuting a new look and new entrance music, but it appears that he won’t be gaining the managerial services of Zelina Vega.
In a new interview with Rick Ucchino of Sportskeeda, Aleister Black has ruled out being managed by wife Zelina Vega. While the ongoing WWE Draft has cast uncertainty on which shows The Dark Destroyer and Vega will be appearing, WWE’s tendency to keep couples on the same show means that the two will likely end up in the same destination. However, despite Vega now being a managerial free agent, Black has ruled out the two working together on-screen.
“I personally think that it makes no sense to put me and her together because Aleister Black and Zelina Vega don’t have anything in common. Uh, Tom and Thea, who are married, have everything in common, but the characters have literally no alignment with each other. So am I saying never, never, never, never? No, but right now it’s zero to none. Like, there’s nothing that’s going to happen that is going to put myself and Zelina Vega together.”
As reported by Inside The Ropes yesterday, WWE are reportedly also very high on Zelina Vega. She is already regarded as “One of the best talkers in the company,” while also winning plaudits for her recent feud with Asuka.
During the same the interview Black went on to confirm that the focus will be on her performing as a wrestler going forwards.
“I think, you know, they want to focus on that for a very long time. Which I think is rightfully so, because she’s proven her mettle as a manager, she’s proven to hold her own on the microphone. Even when she was a manager, she was like throw in the ring a couple of times. And she has a few more matches than some of the people that were established, uh, superstars on her brand before she made that switch. So, um, she wants to focus on being an in-ring competitor.”
