Since being drafted to Monday Night Raw, Aleister Black has remained undefeated and achieved notable victories over Buddy Murphy, Akira Tozawa, and Eric Young. This continues on from his previous booking in NXT and SmackDown whereby The Harbinger Of Fury hasn’t lost a singles match since NXT TakeOver: Phoenix on January 26, 2019.
Executive Director of Raw Paul Heyman is high on Black, and even Vince McMahon believes Black can be a top star in the company. They have so much faith in the former NXT Champion that he was almost picked to win the Men’s Royal Rumble before WWE decided upon Drew McIntyre.
Now, WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley has tipped the Dutch Superstar to be the next top star in WWE and believes he only requires one more big feud to reach the highest level in the company.
Foley tweeted: “I think @WWEAleister is just one major feud away from making a big jump up the @WWE ladder….but the right opponent is everything!”
Since his feud with Buddy Murphy ended on January 13, no one has stepped forward to knock on Black’s door, but it is seemingly only a matter of time until somebody does so.
