Why Aleister Black didn’t appear on the May 28th 2021 edition of WWE Smackdown

After Aleister Black attacked Big E at the end of the May 21st 2021 edition of WWE Smackdown, there was no follow-up on this week’s show.

Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com noted that both Black and Big E were backstage at Smackdown. However, WWE made the decision to keep them both off television. Johnson explained the reasoning…

“We are told that was actually a creative decision that was made to let the story hang for a week so as not to rush the feud  So, for once, it was a case of creative letting things breathe.”
