At WrestleMania 36 Night 2, Bobby Lashley will face Aleister Black in what will be the first-ever singles match at WrestleMania for Black.
Lashley, who made his singles debut at WrestleMania back in 2007 when he represented now-President of the United States, Donald Trump against Vince McMahon's representative, Umaga, took to his personal Twitter to let Aleister Black know that he is in over his head if he thinks he will come out successful in the upcoming match between the two.
“Tonight is the second night of WrestleMania. The show of shows. I face a man tonight who is on the roll of a lifetime right now. He's a martial artist with a mean streak,” he said, complimenting his opponent for the evening. “He's an animal who doesn't lose. His kicks and impact are brutal. He's taken out some of the best guys in our industry.”
Of course, Lashley would then turn up the heat.
“He's NOT Bobby Lashley. 270 pounds of muscle and over six feet of machine. The best athlete to ever step foot in WWE. THE ONLY beast of WWE. If you really think you're ready for that Aleister, then, by all means, let's square up. Many think they're ready, few actually have been. Tonight is the restart of the ass-kicker, the destructive one, the DOMINATOR, the "All Mighty." Bobby. Freaking. Lashley.”
This was the first real hype for this matchup which came to be following the announcement that WrestleMania would take place from the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida without an audience. Also, this match nearly didn't occur.
Fightful will have live coverage of WrestleMania 36 Night 2 beginning at 6 p.m. ET on Sunday.
