Aleister Black vs. Andrade Almas from WWE 2017

This was designed to be a strong introduction of the Aleister Black. In that sense, it was mostly successful. Black was presented like a huge star, and the fans seemed to be accepting of him.

The match itself though was just a *tiny* bit off which took away from the action. As a result, the fans seemed to progressively care a little bit less and less as the contest went on. The match was certainly not a failure by any stretch, but this was not the exclamation point introduction that they probably wanted for Black.

(Almas really came across like an afterthought here. I guess he and Oney Lorcan can just keep tearing it up and not be treated like stars at all.) End won cleanly. (**3/4)
