What's the story?

This week's episode of WWE SmackDown Live saw Aleister Black make his first-ever solo appearance on the main roster since being called up to the main roster.

In a video promo on SmackDown Live this week, he delivered an interesting message to the WWE Universe, which might be teasing a big change in his character on the main roster.

In case you didn't know...

Aleister Black spent most of his time since being called up from NXT as a tag team partner of Ricochet. The two had joined together in NXT to challenge for the titles against the War Raiders, and the same partnership carried through on the main roster.

They challenged for both the RAW and SmackDown Tag Team Championships but were not able to come away with the titles despite their best attempts.

With the Superstar Shakeup, the two of them were split up, with Ricochet going to RAW where he is performing as a high flying singles Superstar. Aleister Black is on SmackDown, and it appears that he is ready for his singles run on the main roster as well.

The heart of the matter

Aleister Black talked about coming to SmackDown, and said that his character was a complex one that not many people would be able to grasp.


He sent a message to the entire WWE Universe, saying that they would soon realise that in their world he was 'condemned'.

The promo was perplexing to say the least, and difficult to decipher. It sounded like he felt that he was misunderstood, and was teasing a run as a heel.

Given his character, he could also act as a Tweener, but only the coming weeks can reveal more.

What's next?


The coming weeks will help to reveal what role Aleister Black will play on the main roster. Without a feud for him yet, the possibilities are limitless. Be it as a heel or a face, Aleister Black might be the future of SmackDown if utilised properly.
