Aleister Black is a phenomenal talent who has the potential to become one of the cornerstone superstars in the WWE. Black has had a phenomenal first year in WWE’s NXT and now he is the face of that brand.
Aleister Black was recently interviewed by rocksins.com where he talked about a number of topics. There, the current NXT Champion talked about being the face of the brand and the duties that he has to fulfil.
Black said that he accepts his role wholeheartedly and hasn’t gotten complacent after earning that spot. He believes that he is capable of carrying the yellow brand on his shoulders and desires to work harder.
Very well (laughs) It’s a responsibility, but it’s something that I accept and it’s something that I knew once I won this belt. I never get complacent with anything. I remember walking backstage and going through the curtain and being congratulated by everyone, but the last thing on my mind is ‘we’ve reached the top of the mountain..its an easy ride from here’. The first thing right away was, the work has just started. I don’t take anything I do within the company for granted and there’s always going to be hard work whether you’re a champion or not. Carrying a brand, especially the third brand of such a huge company such as WWE, and carrying the belt that’s a huge thing, that’s a huge deal. I am more than capable of doing so, but the work is never done and it makes me want to work harder.
