Aleister Black recently appeared as a guest on the Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette podcast for an in-depth interview covering his release from WWE.
During the interview, the wrestling star revealed what Paul Heyman told him when he was released, as well as why he feels genuine excitement for his future.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On what Paul Heyman told him when he was released: “He reached out to me on the day that it happened and was very sad. Paul has always said to me, ‘Tom, I think you’re five years ahead of the business. As brilliant as I think you are, that’s sometimes your biggest issue. You’re so far ahead mentally that people have to catch up.’ He still believes I’m going to do great things.”
On feeling genuine excitement for his future: “I’m absolutely far from done. In these past three days, there have been so many knocks on the door and so many people reaching out and so many cool opportunities. I’m genuinely super excited and for the first time in a long time, I don’t feel anxiety about my profession, I feel genuine excitement.”
