Malakai Black reveals if he would do a cinematic match in AEW

Last updated

AEW star Malakai Black recently appeared on the AEW Unrestricted podcast. The former WWE Superstar discussed several topics during the interview, including the potential of him doing a cinematic match in All Elite.

“I genuinely don’t know. I do plan on making more short little horror movies that I like. Maybe not all of them are going to be towards the Malakai Black character.

“I do a lot of writing and have various creative outlets in my life. The older I get, the more I discover and the more I discover, the more I went to fill. I have long gotten to the point now of not saying no to myself if I feel like I need to do something.

“It’s the same thing with that movie. People think of that as the first time I did something like that, but way back, before I moved to the United States, I was in a tag team called the Sumerian Death Squad and we used to film promos like little horror movies.

“Due to where I went, I had to put all those away because they are very graphic, we slice people’s throats and stuff. We can’t have that. I should probably put them back online. That started in 2010-2011 when we did these cinematic promos because we just wanted to be different, I had it in my head, and we had a good location for it.

“This is the creative part of me that I always wanted to express and I was in a company called ICW and the promoter Mark [Dallas] was like, ‘Have fun with it, show me what you got. Do it, do it.’ He gave me that platform to explore that creative part of myself because I always wanted to do it.

“Once that started happening, other promotions were like, ‘that promo, do you mind doing one for us?’ It was something I could use to fill that creative bucket that I have and the same goes with this.

“I filmed that one and now that I have the connections, the budget, the locations, I definitely want to film more of them, but not all of them will necessarily be more towards Malakai Black. I think a bunch of them will. I’ve written five or six right now.”
