Malakai Black's signing was kept a secret since none of the dirt sheets spoiled the surprise of his debut in All Elite Wrestling.

Literally the moment he showed up on TV is the first time many people knew of the new signing.

During AEW Dynamite, Malakai Black used his Black Mass finisher to kick Arn Anderson in the face. After that, he also kicked Cody Rhodes in the face using the same finishing move.

Unlike other recently released WWE talent, Mr Black didn't have to wait 90 days before he could appear on a rival's television show.
