#2: Who will answer Aleister Black's ominous open challenge?
It is hard to exactly pinpoint the reason as to why Aleister Black needs to ask for an in-ring challenge in the first place.
These backstage Aleister Black segments started off as brooding and ominous, but last night, Aleister Black got frustrated over the fact that nobody had accepted his open challenge yet (why not, though?).
I personally think that Randy Orton will answer Black's open challenge, since both of these superstars have been wrestling against each other at WWE Live Events recently, and it makes sense for weeks of frustration leading into a big feud that could potentially elevate Black's status when it comes to mainstream appeal.
Randy Orton is the perfect candidate who checks all the boxes so far.
Other than that, an Intercontinental Title feud against Finn Balor would be the most balanced choice, and both of these men could put on show-stealing matches every week.
But I think no other programme would be more appealing than Bray Wyatt answering Aleister Black's challenge. Both of these superstars have had a series of vignettes that seem to be leading towards something big, and a potential feud pitting Aleister Black and Bray Wyatt against each other in the squared circle could be a very interesting scenario.
