Fastlane is a pretty new PPV, debuting in 2015 as the big post-Royal Rumble/pre-WrestleMania event.
Sunday's WWE Fastlane will be the final premier event before WrestleMania, and it could get wild. The Bludgeon Brothers have been featured heavily on Smackdown Live as the next dominant force on television.
Tonight at "Fastlane 2018", Bobby Roode lost the United States Title to Randy Orton.
Gearing up for WrestleMania, the SLAM!
Couldn't the team of writers they employ just have gone with Cena wants to have the greatest WrestleMania Moment ever?
MATTHEW BYER: When John Cena tied Ric Flair's 16 World Title Reigns the audience was appreciative and congratulatory. Cena finally overpowered him and hit him with an AA on the steps to nearly pull off a victory but Ziggler somehow recovered to save the day. Only time will tell how WWE places the pieces to WrestleMania's puzzle together. Normally, this wouldn't be a tough call for pro wrestling fans, but even a decade old hypothetical confessional/cash grab feels slightly more compelling than the least necessary pay-per-view of 2018.
Going by the history of WWE, mostly all the departing veteran superstars have followed the pattern Cena is following. Simply a rematch from New Japan's Wrestle Kingdom 10, in which Nakamura got the better of Styles for the IWGP Intercontinental Title. After a blockbuster pay per view in the form of Fastlane, two matches have been added to the Wrestlemania card. Hopefully after Sunday we'll have a clearer picture where the Blue Brand is taking things. And he directly cost both wrestlers their chance at winning, as he broke up pin attempts for both of them. The countdown ended the match and Styles emerged with his Championship belt. If anyone but Styles wins there will be some angry fans. Rusev appeared to have the match won late after Nakamura walked into a Machka Kick for two. The beating goes on too long.

What's new: Local experts react with surprise and skepticism mixed with hope, warning what might happen if the talks fail. It would likely be compared to former President Barack Obama's decision to kill or captured Osama Bin Laden, he said.
Clearly, this implies Styles is the victor, but with all the heavy promotion done to set up The Phenomenal One vs. Nakamura, that should be a given. 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 get shivers thinking about it, and I think it would definitely work.
These predictions were made with no help from the betting lines because I'm not a dirty, rotten, filthy, stinking, cheater.
JOHN POWELL: I really, really don't get the booking here. Of the six matches already announced for WrestleMania, only one is confirmed for SmackDown (with a second still in the cards, depending on if Asuka chooses Charlotte or Alexa for her title-challenge).
It would be sad to see him slide down the card just because he isn't allowed to do his ironically effective style.. This match is all smoke and mirrors.
Although the odds are stacked against him, it is likely that Styles will come out on top setting up a match with Shinsuke Nakamura at WrestleMania in April, in what could be a classic.
Within the match itself, there are some other storylines working themselves out, but John Cena's involvement in this feud should have the largest impact on what is to come.
