Aleister Black has established himself as one of the most popular Superstars in all of WWE due to his work in NXT over the last two years.

He discussed a variety of WWE-related topics during an appearance on Lilian Garcia’s ‘Chasing Glory’ podcast this week, including how he transitioned from working as Tommy End on the independent scene to Aleister Black in NXT.

Asked who came up with his name, Black said:

“It was a collaboration between myself and Triple H. We started shooting names back and forth and I think he saw what I was trying to do, and then he shot me a name and I was like, ‘I don’t hate that but can we put it in these letterings and can we put it this way?’, and it came out to be Aleister Black.”
