5 Things You Need To Know About Aleister Black
Aleister Black was recently called up to the main roster where he has already made quite the impression by defeating both Elias and Andrade in the same week. Black was plying his craft on NXT up until recently where he is a former NXT Champion, but The Dutch Destroyer recently said farewell to the developmental brand and now looks set to become a huge hit on the main roster heading into WrestleMania.
Black has managed to skate under the radar throughout his time in NXT with him keeping his personal life as private as possible and rarely sharing information about his life with the WWE Universe. Now that Black is on the main roster, the spotlight has become somewhat brighter and many fans may be questioning who the latest addition to the roster is, but here are five facts that every Aleister Black fan needs to know.
#5. He's 33-years-old
Whilst WWE's developmental territory has allowed a number of fresh faces to make their way into the company over the years, Black isn't one of the young faces that joined the Performance Center without any background in the sport.
The former NXT Champion made his debut when he was just 17 years old and has been working his way through the ranks in the years that have followed. Of course, Black isn't going to become the "Youngest World Champion" any time soon, but he does bring an air of experience to his role and proves that NXT is a place where even the most well-versed athletes can find a home.
Black is also a star that enjoys the luxury of looking much younger than he actually is, but since he already has almost two decades of experience in the wrestling business behind him, it's probably best not to treat him like a rookie.
