I'm just predicting a preshow match here, because there's gotta be one.
Who do you have for Fastlane this Monday (Manila time)? This latest rumor, if true, means one of two things: Either WWE is elevating the prestige of the tournament to include established stars like Zayn and Owens, or WWE is burying the two Canadians rather than giving them a singles match together (which they should). I'd really like to see Rusev and Roode at Wrestlemania.
SmackDown Tag Team Championship: The Usos (c) vs.
And then there's the lingering, shadowy presence of The Undertaker, the dropping of whose name by Cena on a recent Raw was surely not without meaning. Carmella comes out to try and attempt to take advantage of the Chaos again, before Asuka showing up causes her to scurry off again and Asuka Challenges Flair. But really, that's the only logical outcome. The stories surrounding the Fastlane main event involve Styles wanting to repeat their Wrestle Kingdom 10 performance in the WWE, while Dolph Ziggler wants to spoil everyone's fantasies of that match.
Meanwhile, the rest of the card is a mess.
Warriors navigate rash of injuries
Portland went on an 8-0 run to push the lead to 41-27, but Golden State got within 52-50 on Kevon Looney's follow shot. Back in 2010, Curry needed surgery to fix the ligaments after rolling his ankle multiple times during the season.
"Nakamura is getting a world title match at next month's pay-per-view", Meltzer started. Considering "Rusev Day" is one of the most over gimmicks now in WWE, this could be a nice little push for Rusev as a main event talent. I literally said, 'Jinder, what do you think?'.
It seems hugely unlikely that there will be a title change in the SmackDown women's division; Charlotte Flair is a marquee player on the blue brand while Riott is still very much cutting her main roster teeth.
Rowdy is one of the greatest MMA legends of all time as she is the first ever UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion. In fact, there aren't a lot of options for Charlotte at WrestleMania since Ronda Rousey's dance card is full. The New Day for the WWE "SmackDown" Tag Team Championship - Charlotte Flair vs. Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Rusev is a throwaway match meant to keep the Royal Rumble victor in action, and was only decided up on after a quick two-week build. Becky Lynch and Naomi vs. Natalya and Carmella was only created in this week's episode. This could come into play tonight, seeing a Carmella cash-in victory and a Charlotte rematch at WrestleMania.
The Usos are favorites (-175) against The New Day (+125). So I cant just make match predictions I have to go further, and be bolder and call some serious shots. This tag match is the biggest selling point of Fastlane aside from the potential of simply seeing The Undertaker.
We're hours away from the penultimate stop on the Road to WrestleMania.
