WWE held their final stop before WrestleMania, and Fastlane was full of suprises, shocks and the picture for "The Grandest Stage of Them All" is a little clearer. Fastlane is a pretty new PPV, debuting in 2015 as the big post-Royal Rumble/pre-WrestleMania event.
So, it's exciting to think that something like that could happen even if it's not the main event, they're going to wish it had been. Spoiler alert: AJ Styles is going to win.
Tye Dillinger & Breezango defeated Mojo Rawley, Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin: It was match thrown together after a backstage argument during the kickoff show. So I thought the sheer amount of pin breaks would drive me mad.
Results: Nakamura had Rusev set up for the Kinshasa, but instead ran right into a superkick. Roode fends Mahal off with the Glorious DDT, then he hits one to Orton as well.
Ideally, what we want to see is what already seems to be in the works: Styles vs. Nakamura for the WWE Heavyweight Championship, and Undertaker vs. Cena. But, Owens hit Cena with a pop-up powerbomb and as he turned, Styles then hit the Phenomenal Forearm to retain his title and confirm his WrestleMania spot. Shane had no problem with that ruling, but Bryan chose to make it right by signing Owens vs. Zayn for the right to be #1 contender.
Jinder Mahal came to try and spoil his victory which means we might see a Triple Threat at WrestleMania 34.
I do hope Danial Bryan turns Heel, and form a faction with Owens and Zayn! Owens and Zayn jumped them, so in response, they were put into two singles matches, Corbin vs. Owens and Ziggler vs. Zayn. At Mania, I think Sami and Kevin will either face each other, or will team up and face Ziggler and Corbin.
Neither of these guys should be babyface and both of them have a move set that isn't anything to write home about (do y'all write home about move sets like I do?). That seems like a long-shot however, so go with Styles to retain. Ruby Riott was the best Fastlane match so far. Giving him throwaway matches for the better part of a year in feuds that have amounted to nothing either speaks to the misuse of talent on the blue brand, or poor foresight on the part of the "SmackDown" creative team.
While the action intensifies outside the ring, the Bludgeon Brothers (Luke Harper and Erick Rowan) interfere and lay waste to everybody.
The New Day vs. Let's go by pro wrestling logic-because Becky Lynch beat Carmella this week on SmackDown, it should probably follow that Natalya and Carmella will steal a win here.
Welcome to your fast and furious, crass and curious, WWE Fastlane results!
