From the Netherlands, Malakai Black initially gained recognition in Europe as Tommy End before bringing his skills stateside to the US independent circuit. He was then noticed by WWE, who brought him in as Aleister Black; as Aleister, Black would run rough shot over NXT, including winning the NXT Championship on one occasion. Inconsistencies following his call up to the main roster would often leave Black with nothing, and he would be released from WWE in June of 2021. He has since joined All Elite Wrestling.
