And there was a knock. Over the last few months, Aleister Black has not had much to do. His job has consisted of sitting in a dark room every week and asking someone to come and pick a fight with him. While this might not be the most interesting thing in the world, it has led to some speculation about who could be coming to fight him. A few weeks ago, someone knocked and now we know who that was.
This week on SmackDown Live, Cesaro was revealed as the man who knocked at the door and will be facing Black on Sunday at Extreme Rules. This will be Black’s first match since moving over to SmackDown Live in the Superstar Shakeup. Cesaro had previously been a member of the Monday Night Raw roster, though it is not clear if this is going to be a permanent change for him or not.
Things got set up with a few knocks. Check out how we got here:
Opinion: This isn’t the most thrilling choice in the world, but at the same time it’s better than some of the people it could have been. The problem is that Black has gone ice cold waiting, as the previous run he had has been all but forgotten. I’m looking forward to him kicking Cesaro’s head off, but you never can tell what WWE might do with something like this.
Do you like Cesaro as the choice? What will happen in the match? Let us know in the comments below.
