WWE Fastlane, featuring the RAW Brand, closes out the Pay Per View season, with Wrestlemania around the corner!!
It is all set to go down on Sunday, March 5 at 8 p.m. ET live worldwide on the WWE Network. The kickoff show will begin one hour earlier at 7 p.m. ET. There are a number of intriguing matches set up for Fastlane and the WWE will be hoping for a great PPV in order to build the hype around Monday Night Raw which has been playing second fiddle to Smackdown Live since the brand split.
Kevin Owens (c) vs. Goldberg Universal Championship
Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman
Bayley (c) vs. Charlotte Flair Women’s Championship
Samoa Joe vs. Sami Zayn
Neville (c) vs. Jack Gallagher Cruiserweight Championship
Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson (c) vs. Enzo Amore & Big Cass Tag Team Championship
Sasha Banks vs. Nia Jax
Rich Swann & Akira Tozawa vs. The Brian Kendrick & Noam Dar (Kickoff Show)
The booking is atypical, with Goldberg getting his final reign as champion, as well as a good sendoff against Brock at Mania. Samoa Joe makes his debut PPV; therefore, a loss here is questionable. The new tag team of Gallows & Anderson losing is doubtful.
Here’s hoping LosEvolution.com has the clutch booking!
WWE Battleground will be the first step as the company moves in a new creative direction on its separate Raw and SmackDown brands, and it’s the first time in months that LosEvolution.com has done any bookings. Let’s see how we measure up!
WWE Championship Match Dean Ambrose (c) vs. Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins
Intercontinental Championship The Miz (c) vs. Darren Young
US Championship Match
Rusev (c) vs. Zack Ryder
John Cena, Enzo Amore & Big Cass vs. The Club
Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn
Becky Lynch vs. Natalya
Charlotte & Dana Brooke vs. Sasha Banks & ???
The New Day vs. The Wyatt Family
WWE Network Kickoff Show The Usos vs. Breezango
A lot of the booking is to set up WWE Summerslam, which is headed up with Brock Lesnar vs Randy Orton. Cena will perhaps rematch AJ, and Sasha will finally get her title match. With a strong showing, I’m hoping Darren’s shot at singles gold will also come at the Summerslam PPV.
