Where did they get to? With so many people on the WWE roster at any given time, it can be kind of hard to keep track of all of them. At some point, someone is going to get lost in the shuffle, which can be rather annoying to a lot of fans. That means it can be very satisfying to see them return, but sometimes they go away just as quickly. It seemed like that was the case this week, but now we have an idea of what happened.

Last week on SmackDown, Aleister Black made his return to the arena to attack Big E., costing him the Intercontinental Title in the process. However, neither of them appeared in any way on this week’s edition of SmackDown. According to PWInsider.com, this was done intentionally, for the sake of letting the story build rather than rushing through it. Both men were present at this week’s SmackDown.

These two could be in for something good. Check out what they can do:

FULL MATCH - Aleister Black vs. AJ Styles – No Disqualification Match: WWE Elimination Chamber 2020

Intercontinental Championship Fatal 4-Way Match: SmackDown, May 21, 2021

Opinion: I think I’m relieved by this, but at the same time it is a bit much to have the story take a week off the week after it started. You would think that it would be getting at least some time or a few words from one of the people involved, but that seems like it is going to have to wait. As long as they do something next week, things should work out well enough, but beyond that and the story might be in trouble.

What do you think of the angle? Where is it going next? Let us know in the comments below.
