WWE Fastlane has been around since 2015 now, and while that doesn’t sound like a long time, it’s certainly felt like an eternity for the majority of WWE fans. The event has been positioned in between Royal Rumble and WrestleMania in the last few years, with it taking the role of being the final PPV stop before we reach the showcase of the immortals.

Some fans out there may enjoy watching Fastlane on a year-by-year basis, but for us, it’s nothing more than a big old waste of time. Sure, we get some decent matches out of it every now and then, but aside from that, we could do without it.

Unfortunately, it seems like the company doesn’t intend on binning the concept any time soon, meaning that we’re all going to have to resort to moaning on the internet.

With that being said, here are five reasons why Fastlane is the worst WWE pay per view.

2015, 2016 and 2017 were decent enough years for WWE from a financial standpoint, and they all had something else in common – their edition of Fastlane wasn’t very good. Whether it be due to the card or the booking decisions made by the company, they just can’t seem to carve out an interesting version of this show.

It’s been a flawed concept ever since it was officially introduced, and it seems baffling to us that WWE hasn’t figured that out yet. Their inability to make some kind of change leads us to believe that the same thing is likely to happen in 2018, and you know things are bad when even Battleground has had a few decent moments over the years.
