5 things that must happen at Fastlane 2018
WWE must be sure not to drop the ball on the final PPV before WrestleMania.
The final SmackDown before Fastlane is now over, but it did nothing to get us excited for the event.
WWE announced two more matches for the event which the fans don't seem to care about, as they will be overshadowed by the title matches at the event. The title matches didn't get any more hype added to them this past week either. WWE basically didn't help persuade the fans to watch the show.
The women had a generic segment while the US title picture didn't really involve Bobby Roode that much. He basically helped Mahal pick up the win. Lastly, minus Cena, WWE basically gave away Fastlane main event away for free, one week before the event.
That being said, here are five things WWE must do at Fastlane this Sunday, to ensure that the PPV is a success.
#5 Aiden English helps out Rusev
WWE announced on SmackDown that Rusev will be facing Shinsuke Nakamura at the event. Nakamura should win the bout to help keep building momentum towards WrestleMania, but that doesn't mean Rusev should just job to him.
During the match, Aiden should somehow get involved. Either distracting the referee or Nakamura himself, as it will make The Artist deal with 'the numbers game' and help him look stronger.
Let's be honest, besides some decent matches with John Cena and an epic face off with AJ Styles at Money in the Bank last year, WWE has booked Nakamura pretty badly on the main roster. So, a strong showing over Rusev should be what happens at the event.
