#2 Gave Aleister Black another match
One color that goes extremely well with red is black, and that is exactly what the Red brand needed to spice things up on RAW.
Aleister Black returned for another match on RAW this week and squared off against local competitor Jason Reynolds. It was good to see that the local competitor wasn’t just another skinny kid from around the block, but a man bigger than Black who could deliver a few moves of his own. Black managed to overcome Reynolds and deliver his Black Mass finisher for the win, which gave fans something to cheer about.
Although it isn't always entertaining when Superstars compete against local competitors, it seems like RAW is doing a much better job than SmackDown was. Black was busy in delivering theatrical promos on SmackDown that did not materialize into any meaningful matches or feuds. It’s much better to see him compete in the ring in front of the WWE Universe rather than sit back and wait for someone to knock on his door.
In the coming weeks, WWE may look to give Black some Handicap Matches against lower-ranked tag teams to increase his appeal, just like they did when he took on the Singh Brothers.Published 22 Oct 2019, 17:30 IST
