AJ Styles Must Retain At WWE Fastlane

Why Sami Zayn Winning at Fastlane is the Perfect Route to Wrestlemania for SmackDown

Women from both RAW and Smackdown will compete in this historic over-the-top-rope battle royal.

Tonight at WWE "Fastlane," Charlotte Flair defended the "Smackdown Live" Women's Championship against Ruby Riott.

-The WWE Cruiserweight Championship tournament finals.

Flair performed an outstanding moonsault on her opponent during the match.

But there was a new competitor for SmackDown's women's title, with Asuka appearing after the conclusion of Charlotte Flair's win over Ruby Riott to challenge the champion. Unfortunately for the 16-time World Champion, that also made him the target of everyone in the ring. After the match, Jinder Mahal came in and attacked. After a blockbuster pay per view in the form of Fastlane, two matches have been added to the Wrestlemania card. So I cant just make match predictions I have to go further, and be bolder and call some serious shots. Both Cena and Styles face-off in the ring amidst huge pop from the crowd. Despite a legitimate gripe from both Owens and Zayn, General Manager Daniel Bryan scheduled the both of them to face off on the February 6th edition of Smackdown LiveThat match would end in a double disqualification resulting into Bryan declaring a Triple threat match at Fastlane.

Dave Meltzer noted in the Daily Update on that McMahon will be working some sort of match with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn at WrestleMania 34.

If WWE commits to creating video packages and vignettes focused on Nakamura and puts him in positions to succeed when he does get mic time, then he should enter WrestleMania with a ton of momentum, which would give the fans plenty of desire to see him win the WWE title. I prefer Taker, but as long as he's not butting into Styles vs. Nakamura, I can live with whatever.

But for now, the focus is on Asuka vs. Charlotte, which could very well end up being one of the greatest and most memorable matches in WWE history.

Rusev and Nakamura kept the Columbus, OH invested with a well-paced match that saw a few really nice false finishes.

" The tag-title match ended in a no contest".

WWE could still book a Styles-Nakamura match.

JOHN POWELL: I really, really don't get the booking here. 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. It just doesn't seem like an organized card.

We're finally here: the final WWE pay-per-view before WrestleMania 34.
