6 mistakes WWE must avoid making at Fastlane
Fastlane has become infamous in the short time that it has been around. It has a reputation for usually putting on one of the worst shows of the year. Fans dread it rather than anticipate it, primarily because of the way it often disrupts the WrestleMania build and makes it worse. The end of Braun Strowman, Nia Jax, and Charlotte's streaks at last year's event are good examples of disappointing booking decisions that subsequently made WrestleMania less exciting.
WWE must avoid the habit of throwing swerves just for the sake of shocking the audience. Here are six swerves that the WWE Universe definitely doesn't want.
#6 Carmella cashing in
There have been many opportunities for Carmella to cash in. They've all passed. Carmella's Money in the Bank win was questionable, to begin with, but she's certainly not ready to hold a championship during WrestleMania season, much less so with the rumored Asuka vs Charlotte championship match. In that scenario, Carmella becomes a third wheel absolutely nobody wants hanging around. Now is not the time for 'The Queen' to lose her crown.
If the plan really is for Asuka to challenge Charlotte, and Carmella attempts to cash in, she should fail, and leave no doubt that we're about to see the biggest women's match WWE has ever had at WrestleMania, one that leaves the two top female competitors in the company free and clear to tear New Orleans down.
