Fastlane is the last stop on the Road to WrestleMania on Sunday, March 11 in Columbus, Ohio. A SmackDown Live exclusive event, all four belts are up for grabs for the blue brand. Tradition tells us that the "go home" PPV before WM is not a lot to get excited about. No surprise, that tradition holds firm.
There are six matches on the main card with the two non-title bouts seemingly pulled out of creative's ass. A womens tag match based on a 15 minute feud and what appears to be a mandatory appearance for Shinsuke Nakamura based on giving someone a sore throat. Regardless, your marquee talent has to appear, storylines be damned.
AJ Styles has gone from a Triple Threat to a Six-Pack Challenge to retain his WWE Championship. The biggest unknown here is...WWCD. What will Cena do? Can there be a WrestleMania without John Cena? Don't count on it, one way or another.
Charlotte Flair intends to go 3 for 3 against the Riott Squad by taking out Ruby Riott. WTF is going on in the womens division on SD Live?
The Usos defend the tag belts against...The New Day. Again. Look for it to be nothing but a spot for what's coming...The Bludgeon Brothers.
Bobby Roode defends the US Championship against Randy Orton. Expect shenanigans.
Aiden English is currently unable to sing for Rusev, so Rusev wants to make Shinsuke Nakamura pay. Sure. Whatever, creative.
Becky Lynch & Naomi versus Natalya & Carmella. Three former champions and the Money In The Bank winner in a mean nothing match. Wouldn't someone running around with cutouts of them in the ring for 8 minutes be cheaper?
