Happy Saturday Gamers, Geeks and Friends! We are less than a month from Wrestlemania and the last stop on the Road to Wrestlemania will be the Raw Exclusive Pay Per View Event, Fastlane. This is where the final picture for our Wrestlemania matches will finally take shape. The previous WWE post and PayPerView gave us a new WWE World Champion in Bray Wyatt at the Elimination Chamber, now we will see what the fate of WWE’s longest reigning Universal Champion Kevin Owens will yield. Last preview post I had a record of predicting all of the outcomes (except for the double count off of Nikki Bella and Natayla) so I look to keep the momentum here. This will be a quick predictions post so let’s get to it!
The Kickoff match is sure to be exciting with tag team Cruiserweight action! We will see former Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann team with Akira Tozawa to take on the team of Noam Dar and The Brian Kendrick. I really enjoy watching the explosive Crusierweights so this match should be awesome and a great way to kick off the night. I will roll with Swann and Tozawa to come off victorious. Then Rich will hit the old school dance moves on them in the middle of the ring. I’m sorry I have to say this though … Noam Dar “Alicia Foxxxxx.” lol
Sami Zayn Versus Samoa Joe- I can’t stand Samoa Joe since he made his heel turn back in WWE turning on then NXT Champion Finn Balor and that hatred for Joe intensified when he dare touch Seth Rollins at the command of Triple H. With that said, Samoa Joe is really good in the ring. I want so bad to type that Sami Zayn will take this match but I just don’t see it happening, however, if a certain “Architect” causes a distraction… this match can go the way of Sami Zayn. Hmmm Finn Balor can also appear to stir up some trouble (Finn, Finn, Finn). As much as it pains me, I’m betting my money on Samoa Joe in this match.
Sasha Banks Versus Nia Jax- This match up just seems unfair and out of Sasha’s reach due to Nia being stronger, taller and let’s face it, Sasha is a toothpick in comparison. I doubt she’s going to get beat to a pulp again so I will take Sasha Banks in this match. Slay the giant Sasha, Slay the Giant!
Roman Reigns Versus Braun Strowman- Has anyone else heard the rumor of Roman being traded to Smackdown Live for AJ Styles? There’s no way Smackdown is letting Aj go is there? It would be interesting having Styles and the rest of the club, now Tag Team Champions Gallows and Anderson together. Anyway down to this match, I’m taking Roman. I know many WWE Fans have a sour taste in their mouths for Roman Reigns but he’s still amazing and I still can’t stand Strowman. Roman will “Reign” again, even if the WWE Universe tries to push against it (You’re still buying his merchandise lol).
Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson Versus Enzo Amore and Big Cass for the Tag Team Titles- All titles will be defended in the Fastlane PayPerView event, but will any titles change hands. I love Enzo and Cass (Badaboom Realest Guys in the room, HOW YA DOING!) and they have been pillars n the tag team community bringing us laughs and new phrases like 0 DIMES! Will they finally achieve greatness and take down the rugged Gallows and Anderson team? Yes, Yes Yes! I’m seriously hoping for new champs and Enzo and Cass would be awesome picks. On Smackdown Live the NXT super talents American Alpha has claimed Gold, so it’s time for the most entertaining duo in the biz to get their spotlight. As unlikely as it seems, I’m sticking with Enzo and Cass becoming the New Raw Tag Team Championsssss!
Bayley Versus Charlotte Raw Women’s Championship – I have to say that I am really happy with the talent on both Raw and Smackdown Live as far as the Women’s division goes. I found myself unfortunately fast forwarding through the Women’s matches (Formerly Divas) a few years ago because they just didn’t seem interesting. Now I look forward to the Women’s matches and I’m proud of WWE for letting them grow into high caliber Superstars. That said I am sick of Charlottes 0 loss PayPerView streak and I’m rooting for Bayley to not only retain, but END THAT STREAK! That being said Charlotte is an amazing athlete and I know this match will be Awesome!
Neville Versus Jack Gallagher Cruiserweight Championship- The addition of the Cruiserweights has really been an excellent addition to the WWE lineups. I’m really looking forward to this match as I quite like he heel turn of Neville. Couple that with Gallagher’s comedic antics and both Superstar’s abilities in the ring and we have another explosive match. I want Gallagher to take the championship so I’m rooting against Neville in this match.
Kevin Owens Versus Goldberg Universal Championship- The main event will be Kevin Owens defending his Universal Title against the Icon Goldberg. I’m not too sure how this match will play out, Owens has been champion for a while and if WWE is planning to set up the Owens versus Jericho match at Wrestlemania the outcome of this match will be crucial. I see Owens retaining but I can also see Goldberg taking it. Anything can happen, Lesner can show up and interrupt, Jericho or even Finn Balor (Yes I’m still on the Balor returning train lol). He never lost the Universal Championship and “The Demon” may want his title back! For predictions sake I will say Goldberg wins, but I’m not too confident in that prediction lol.
What are your predictions for Fastlane? Who do you want to see come out on top and what matches are you predicting for Wrestlemania? Will there be any surprises happening at this event? Let’s Talk WWE Fastlane and Wrestlemania!
Have a great weekend!
