Two Superstars looking for a fight. A rivalry nobody saw coming. And one stage big enough to host it. In one of the most intriguing matchups of WrestleMania season, Aleister Black will go one-on-one with Bobby Lashley at this year’s history-making edition of The Showcase of the Immortals.

While the two have had little to no interaction of late, they make perfect sense as opponents. Black has made it clear in recent weeks that he’s no longer willing to wait for fights to come to him, opting to seek out matches with anyone on Raw who’s unwise enough to take them. Likewise, Lashley has reintroduced himself in a major way, transforming from wife-stealing Casanova to human wrecking machine in a matter of weeks as a way to bulldoze his way back into title contention.

In other words, this match is a classic case of two people looking to make a statement, with each suddenly the other’s biggest roadblock to the next level. And now, like the classic math problem, these two trains are on a collision course, with WrestleMania as the shared destination. Sometimes, it’s just that simple.

The Only WrestleMania Too Big for Just One Night! Don't miss an historic two-night presentation of WrestleMania 36, streaming on WWE Network with former New England Patriot Rob Gronkowski hosting The Show of Shows, this Saturday and Sunday at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.  To watch WrestleMania on WWE Network, you must sign up for a free trial.

Get expert analysis on all things Showcase of the Immortals with the two-day WrestleMania Kickoff, Saturday and Sunday beginning at 6 ET / 3 PT on WWE.com, WWE Network, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Twitch - delivered by Papa Johns.
