WWE SmackDown Superstar Zelina Vega published her live reaction through Twitter when her hubby, Aleister Black, made his AEW debut on tonight s episode of AEW Dynamite: Road Rager.
Vega tweeted, I couldn t be prouder after Black secured both Arn Anderson and Cody Rhodes with roundhouse kicks.
Black was initially described as Tommy End until Excalibur billed him as Malakai Black, a name that Black presented in an Instagram video previously on Wednesday.
As reported earlier, Black was able to appear on AEW programs barely a month into his WWE release due to a clerical mistake on WWE s part. Typically, main roster Superstars are needed to serve a 90-day non-compete provision. WWE failed to upgrade Black s contract from the standard 30-day non-compete stipulation when he moved over from NXT to the main roster a few years back.
Meanwhile, Vega returned to WWE TELEVISION on last week s SmackDown in a loss to Liv Morgan. She was introduced as the current entrant in the Women s Money In the Bank Ladder Match.

I couldn t be prouder.
