Aleister Black ended things with a big return and a cliffhanger last week. That was not followed up on at all this week. Black was absent from television and many fans were left wondering why.

According to PW Insider, both Big E and Aleister Black were backstage during SmackDown. Creative simply decided to let the story “hang” for a week. They’re not rushing that feud despite the big ending from last week.

We are told that was actually a creative decision that was made to let the story hang for a week so as not to rush the feud  So, for once, it was a case of creative letting things breathe.


We’ll have to see what this leads to, but it might be a dangerous recipe to let things “hang” for too long. That is how Vince McMahon forgets about people which is something Aleister Black doesn’t need to happen again.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
