Switch things up a bit. Wrestlers can do a lot of things in the ring and on the microphone but at some point, most of them need some kind of a change. There are different ways to present a wrestler and one of the best is to turn them in one direction or another. This can open up some different stories for them while giving their character a fresh take. That was the case this week on Monday Night Raw.
One of the better problems that WWE has at the moment is having so much talent on television. All three of their regular television shows have some very talented wrestlers on their rosters and that means it can be difficult to figure out everything in the right order. That can involve some changes and turns, including one which took place during this week’s television show.
This came out of nowhere. Check out Monday’s heel turn:
This week on Monday Night Raw, Aleister Black made his return to television after missing about a month due to an eye injury caused by Buddy Murphy. Black saw a clip of the attack during his appearance on the Kevin Owens Show and went down to a knee while holding his head. Owens checked on him but Black came up and hit him with Black Mass, turning heel in the process for the first time in WWE.
Opinion: I can go for something like this as Black is someone who could be quite the heel under the right circumstances. Having him as the brooding villain who can kick your head off as the ultimate weapon could be quite the story, especially whenever someone gets to kick out of the thing in the end. Black could be quite a heel and a feud with Owens could be a good place to start.
What do you think of the idea of a Black turn? How far can he go in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
