Today, at 7PM CST, WWE Fastlane will be culminating from the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The main event features Kevin Owens defending his WWE Universal Championship against Bill Goldberg. I am going to give you a rundown of the card and my predictions.
The pre-show match will feature 205 Live Cruiserweight action as “The Outlandish” Rich Swann will be teaming with Akira Tozawa to face The Brian Kendrick and Noam Dar.
Prediction: Swann and Tozawa win when Tozawa pins Dar via his patented snap German suplex. The feud between Tozawa and Kendrick will continue. They need to build Tozawa up as a credible threat.
I predict that the show will open with the Raw Tag Team Championship up for grabs as Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson will defend their tag team titles against Enzo Amore and Big Cass.
Prediction: Enzo and Big Cass win the match but Gallows and Anderson get themselves disqualified. I think they are going to save Enzo and Big Cass to get their Wrestlemania moment by winning the Raw Tag Team Titles, and I think Cesaro and Sheamus will somehow get involved to make it a triple threat match at Wrestlemania for the Raw Tag Team Championships.
Next match, I predict will be Sasha Banks taking on Nia Jax.
Prediction: Sasha Banks gets the upset victory. I think Nia Jax will dominate most of the match, however, Sasha will surprise her with a major upset victory via rollup. Bayley will come out and say that she can’t believe that she won, which we will start seeing a tease of a heel turn from Sasha Banks.
Next match, Samoa Joe goes one on one with Sami Zayn.
Prediction: Samoa Joe wins, however this will be the match of the night. WWE knows that they have a great thing with both Superstars, Sami Zayn will look strong, but Samoa Joe will continue his run as a dominant heel.
Next match, Neville defends his Cruiserweight championship against Jack Gallagher.
Prediction: Neville retains the title by submission. To me, Gallagher is just keeping the seat warm until the next feud. I felt that this feud has already ran its course. Gallagher will be relegated to a lower card comedy act again. I predict Austin Aries comes out and proclaim that he’s making his debut at Wrestlemania and he demands a championship match against Neville at Wrestlemania. I think we will either see a ladder match with multiple competitors for the cruiserweight title or a cruiserweight open ala Wrestlemania 20.
Next match, Bayley defends her Raw Women’s Championship against Charlotte Flair.
Prediction: Charlotte regains the Raw Women’s Championship. I am predicting a heel turn from Sasha Banks, she will purposely cost Bayley the championship, and it will be a triple threat match for the Raw Women’s Championship at Wrestlemania, which Bayley will regain the title at Wrestlemania 33.
Next match: Roman Reigns faces Braun Strowman.
Prediction: Roman Reigns wins. We will see The Undertaker make an appearance and challenge Roman Reigns to a match at Wrestlemania.
Main Event: Kevin Owens defends the WWE Universal Championship against Bill Goldberg.
Prediction: Kevin Owens retains with the help of Brock Lesnar. WWE Universe wants to see Owens fight Jericho for the Universal Title at Wrestlemania 33, and Lesnar will return the favor from when Goldberg cost Lesnar the WWE Championship from Eddie Guerrero at No Way Out. Although, I could see Goldberg winning and Lesnar state that he wants a title vs. career match at Wrestlemania 33. I’m going with Owens winning thanks to Lesnar.
Personally, WWE needs to deliver with Fastlane tonight! This should be used to build up Wrestlemania 33 more than anything!
