• Reason Behind Aleister Black Not Wrestling At SummerSlam 2019

Aleister Black vs. Sami Zayn was originally scheduled to take place at SummerSlam 2019, but it took place on SmackDown this week instead.

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, Vince McMahon tore up the script of this week’s SmackDown because he didn’t like it.

When he was done writing a show that he liked, there was still plenty of time left to fill, so Vince decided to put Black vs. Zayn on SmackDown:

“The Aleister Black and Sami Zayn match, the reason they did that was when Vince showed up and he didn’t like SmackDown and he tore the whole show apart, when he was done with the stuff he didn’t like and then changing the main event, they had an hour to fill so one of the ideas for that hour was ‘well, what can we do in this hour?’ — ‘Let’s put Aleister Black and Sami Zayn on’ — so that’s one of the things they did to fill the hole so they took that off the pay-per-view. So that’s the reason it’s off the pay-per-view.”
