Gravitational waves don't force the conclusion that black holes exist but they corroborate the theory of general relativity that allows both. There could exist some weird theory that could exclude one or the other.
Also, the particular detailed shape of the gravitational wave "chirp" fit beautifully with predictions based on black holes. /Mike W.
