WWE Fastlane 2018: Results, Matches, and More

WWE Fastlane 2018: Results, Matches, and More

Let's go by pro wrestling logic-because Becky Lynch beat Carmella this week on SmackDown, it should probably follow that Natalya and Carmella will steal a win here. For a number of weeks, fans have speculated about whether or not he would be a part of WrestleMania this year. The match itself should be pretty damn good, but once again, this was hastily thrown together and has zero impact on the story. Though, I do think that Carmella is going to remind us that she is Ms. Money in the Bank.

WHAT IT IS: It's the hottest babyface on the show vs the Royal Rumble victor, who is also a legend in Japan, a charisma machine, and a guy about whom everyone said things like "he doesn't need to be messed with or fixed, he just needs to be turned loose" and "if WWE finds a way to screw him up they are the dumbest company alive". However, his defeat opens the door to a match with The Undertaker, something Cena teased on the February 26 edition of Raw. Rusev appeared to have the match won late after Nakamura walked into a Machka Kick for two.

In a seemingly "meaningless" sequence, Randy Orton intercepts Bobby Roode out of midair to hit his signature RKO, then he pins Roode in the center of the ring.

At the end though, Randy Orton delivered an fantastic RKO to win the US Title for the very first time in his career. It's either a Jinder Mahal match, really, or a Bludgeon Brothers match-anything to retain both parties' momentum heading into WrestleMania. Tag Team Championship against New Day, Charlotte defends her WWE Smackdown!

Ideally, what we want to see is what already seems to be in the works: Styles vs. Nakamura for the WWE Heavyweight Championship, and Undertaker vs. Cena. Women's Championship against Ruby Riott and much more so be sure to come back here at 8PM for all of the action and stick around after the show for the post show podcast! She would later face Morgan and Logan, winning both matches.

Don't expect Charlotte to lose her title, either.

Iranian foreign minister arrives in Pakistan for three-day visit
Zarif will participate in the Iran-Pakistan Joint Economic Forum in Pakistan's commercial center of Karachi on March 13. He said cooperation between state bank of Pakistan and Bank Milli Islami will also be promoted.

WHAT IT IS: It's the Usos vs New Day...again. Now, many fans are clamoring for answers on why he does not have a clear path to the Grandest Stage of Them All. New Day would win against the Minnesotan tag team earning that #1 contender right. 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.

It looked like Styles' hopes of retaining were in dire straits when Cena sent him through one of the announcer tables with an Attitude Adjustment. This match will also setup Owens versus Zayn at WrestleMania and may even establish a program for Corbin and Ziggler, but none of those four are likely to win the WWE Title here. Before WrestleMania is etched in stone, we have WWE Fastlane 2018.

The more buzz surrounding the Superstar, the better; it gets people invested in following Cena's Road to WrestleMania as well as wanting to find out who his opponent will be.

While Charlotte has yet to formally accept, look for the match to get set in stone on the next episode of SmackDown.

This was the final SmackDown Live pay-per-view leading up to WrestleMania 34. No matches have been announced for the kickoff show yet.
