WWE Fast Lane 2019 Preview

  • Pin It

The final PPV stop on the Road to WrestleMania is surely going to help clear up that WrestleMania picture a little bit.

Since Elimination Chamber, there has been a ton of new happenings in the WWE. From Bruce Prichard being hired as a head creative member, to the heel turn of Ronda Rousey, there has been so much going on to the point WWE programming has been near can’t miss television. Even if not watching live, a lot are finding themselves roaming Twitter for updates or going on to YouTube to watch match highlights. This type of excitement and angst is what makes WrestleMania season so great. Plus, the fact there is still some big matches to be decided shows anything can happen between now and April 7th.

Here is your Fast Lane match card:

 

Kickoff Show: Rey Mysterio vs. Andrade – 

These two have outstanding chemistry, to the point WWE has taken it upon themselves to use this match as a fill in knowing they will put on a great match. The Mysterio and Andrade dynamic is pretty awesome and every time they lock horns, magic happens in the ring. Smackdown Live has been able to keep these two involved with one another even when not in singles competition.

As far as who wins this match, Mysterio has been on the losing end more than Andrade, so the expectation here would he to start the kickoff show on a high note by having Mysterio pick up the victory over Andrade.

 

Kickoff Show: Big E & Xavier Woods vs. Shinsuke Nakamura and Rusev – 

More filler for the kickoff show, it appears to be a match just to entertain the live audience before the main card starts. It is kind of surprising that this match will even be happening, even for the talent.

That’s some pretty funny stuff.

As far as who wins, New Day will do so to get the crowd on a high note to close out the kickoff show.

 

Raw Tag Team Titles: The Revival (Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson) (c) vs. Aleister Black and Ricochet vs. Chad Gable and Bobby Roode – 

This match is classic booking 101. Black and Ricochet are in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, so WWE is using the main roster as a platform to help promote that on NXT. By having all three teams involved, this produces a quality attraction that has the potential to be the match of the night. All six competitors are tremendous workers and will put on a clinic. Black and Ricochet even with being on a tear, will not win because it just doesn’t make any sense. The Revival will retain the belts by either pinning Roode or Gable, which could end up getting Roode to turn heel on his partner after the match. Even if the turn doesn’t happen, The Revival will retain in what will most likely be the best wrestled match of the card.

 

Smackdown Live Tag Team Titles: The Usos (Jey and Jimmy Uso) (c) vs. The Miz and Shane McMahon – 

I would be completely and utterly shocked if this match does not only end in an Usos victory, but if it doesn’t end with Miz turning on Shane or vice-versa.

The curiosity lies in how will the turn be executed and when will it exactly happen.

Usos retain.

The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins) vs. Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley –

Your feel good match of the card and what is most likely the final time we see The Shield together as a unit, it’s a near guarantee The Shield picks up the win.

However, will there be any type of funny business involved?

Could you imagine Roman Reigns turning heel on his brothers? It’s near impossible, but it would get him inserted into the main event of WrestleMania. Otherwise, there definitely needs to be something where Reigns is pegged by one of the three opponents that leads to a WrestleMania match for him.

The Shield wins.

 

Smackdown Live Women’s Title: Asuka (c) vs. Mandy Rose – 

God’s Greatest Creation Mandy Rose has been on fire as of late. I deemed 2019 to be the year of Mandy Rose not too long ago and this title shot could help get us to that proclamation sooner. Rose not only has the look, but her improvement in the ring continues to shine. Asuka and Rose squared off at a live show this past Monday in which Asuka dealt with a neck injury, forcing the ref to throw up the ‘X’ to signal the impromptu end of the match. Luckily, the injury was minor and was also not the fault of Rose, therefore not putting the match or Rose’s potential push in any sort of jeopardy.

As of right now, the Smackdown Live title picture in the women’s division is in sort of disarray. Mostly because their two biggest stars in Becky Lynch and Charlotte are competing on Raw, leaving Smackdown Live to be no man’s land so to speak.

With that being said, there has to be some sort of way to get Asuka into a meaningful match for the title. That would mean Mandy Rose getting the shocking victory here over Asuka and setting up the rematch at WrestleMania.

Rose picks up the shocking victory and Corey Graves may end up jumping into the ring to celebrate.

 

WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles: Sasha Banks and Bayley (c) vs. Tamina and Nia Jax –

It’s hard to fathom any other result than Bayley and Sasha retaining here. Mostly because it would make sense for the first ever champions to get a lengthy reign. If there was any idea to go with Nia and Tamina as champions, wouldn’t they have won at Elimination Chamber?

Then again, this is WWE.

Bayley and Banks retain, setting up possibly another match between these two at WrestleMania or some type of gauntlet style match to get more women involved on the card if they decide to not do the battle royal this year.

 

WWE Championship: Daniel Bryan (c) vs. Kevin Owens – 

Don’t know about all of you, but this new Kevin Owens character is going to do very well. Owens as a face is something we haven’t really seen in WWE and with his type of character you wouldn’t think it would work. Sure enough, Owens is making it work. His realism and connection to the audience is going to keep him in the main event picture throughout the rest of 2019, and we may see him clash with Samoa Joe for the US title at some point.

Though, regarding this match, Bryan will retain.

The payoff match is Bryan vs Kofi Kingston at WrestleMania. That is what the fans want to see, and that is what the fans will be getting.

 

If Becky wins, she’s added to the Raw Women’s Title Match at WrestleMania: Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair –

Your main event of the card as of this writing, we all know how this is going to go.

Becky Lynch will earn her way to the title match at WrestleMania with an improbable victory over Charlotte here. The problem lies with the fact Charlotte will even be involved in that WrestleMania match anyway.

Ronda Rousey vs. Becky Lynch by itself has main event written all over it. Between their in-ring verbal barbs to their social media back and forth affairs, there was no need for Charlotte.

Then of course, you have Ronda breaking kayfabe left and right as she tears the WWE Universe a new one (Forward to around the six minute mark.)

It is what it is though, so let us enjoy The Man overcoming the odds once again as this final PPV stop on the Road to WrestleMania concludes.
