The most obvious being that it was extremely unlikely that the black hole formed through the gradual accretion of material or collisions with other black holes. Since angular momentum is preserved the random distribution of momentum would cancel out the overall momentum of the final black hole.

Amazing to think of hundreds of thousands to billions of solar masses collapsing as a single volume.

Maybe supermassive black holes were formed in our closest sister universe:
