We’re just a few weeks away from WWE Fastlane, which will be the final stop on the road to WrestleMania. The secondary event was a Raw-exclusive show last year but this time around it’ll be SmackDown Live who bring the curtain down on all pre-Mania PPVs, as the blue brand attempt to really build the hype for the showcase of the immortals in New Orleans.
Several big names are set to do battle on this card as they attempt to worm their way into the plans for Mania, although as we know, not all of them will be successful. Regardless of that this should still be a fairly entertaining event, with the venue being the Nationwide Arena in Columbus.
With this being one of the last chances for superstars to impress WWE management you can bet that there are going to be some world class matches on display, which is really all we can ask for from FL at this point.
With that being said, here are five potential matches for Fastlane 2018.
#1 AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn
This is the first of two scenarios that we can see being created tonight on SmackDown Live, and to be honest, it’s probably our favourite. Although we all know that AJ Styles has a 99.9% chance of walking into the Superdome as WWE champion, having Owens and Zayn refuse to fight each other tonight could lead to an interesting triple threat scenario.
It would be the perfect time for Sami to turn on Owens and cost him the WWE title one more time, and it’d allow AJ to grab the victory on his way towards a dream match against Nakamura in New Orleans.
Plus, it’s a little bit different from their handicap match at the Royal Rumble, which always helps when you’re trying to keep things fresh.
