The ringside area is busy with the LWO and The Street Profits circling the ring. There is no confirmation yet on which three members of the LWO will compete at Fastlane.

Bobby dominates early on, using his strength to push around the Hall of Famer immediately. Lashley is wrestling like a heel, even if he's still popular. Big kicks in the corner and grinding the boot against Rey's face. Lashley whips Rey, but Mysterio picks up the pace only to be slowed down by a kick.
