The Shane McMahon-Daniel Bryan saga has been the central focus on SmackDown Live recently. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn are two ancillary players in that storyline, who've been at odds with Shane McMahon and very loosely aligned with Daniel Bryan.

WWE has booked a very interesting match for next week's show. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn will take each other on in a singles contest, and the winner of that match will go on to Fastlane, to challenge the WWE Champion. AJ Styles will only have to face one of the two men, unlike the Royal Rumble.

There are so many ways this match could go down. We will only list five of them, for your reading pleasure.

Let us know in the comments below, how you think this highly anticipated match will actually play out.


#5 Tye Dillinger lays out both the challengers

In that case, this match would be a no-contest

As Tye Dillinger reminded us this week on SmackDown Live, he had every right to be in the Royal Rumble match, at the Number 10 spot. Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens blindsided Dillinger and Zayn eventually took his Royal Rumble spot, for a precious few minutes.

Why would Dillinger be okay with Owens and Zayn going all the way to Fastlane, when they cost him his opportunity? He could come out during the finish of their match, to lay both men out. In which case, we predict a Triple Threat match at Fastlane 2018.

Having Dillinger enter the fray would also bring about some fresh blood at the top of the card. He's a solid worker and would greatly benefit from a tussle with Owens and Zayn.

In terms of continuity, this option makes perfect sense.
