Here are 5 things we learned from TLC.
#5 Both Aleister Black and Buddy Murphy are set for a big year in 2020
Although Aleister Black ultimately won their match of the night encounter, it’s clear as day that WWE has big plans for both these men. The duo met in the second match on the main show, a slot that may not be the best, but they were give a good amount of time to showcase their skills. WWE’s best-kept secret has been scheduled for a push ever since he had the match of his life against Roman Reigns on SmackDown months ago.
Furthermore, since moving to RAW, the Australian prizefighter has been undefeated, reiterating the company’s faith in him. As for Black, he’s been positioned for a major push ever since he made his debut, not having lost a 1-on-1 match cleanly on the main roster. Tonight’s outing proved to the fans that Black is now ready for a singles push heading into the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania season.
