7 Major Twists that could happen at Fastlane 2018
Fastlane may seem like an unwanted roadblock to WrestleMania at this point but it's still packed with some underrated gems that could make for a very entertaining watch.
The haphazardly put six-pack challenge for the WWE title not only promises to be a solid in-ring affair but also a swerve-worthy one.
That, and an underwhelming undercard requires a handful of unanticipated twists to elevate itself into a top quality show.
SmackDown has had the habit of overcoming the odds in the past and with Fastlane being the final PPV before the show of shows, creative is expected to bring their A-game to the B-show.
In this list, we take a look at the biggest swerves to expect at the PPV no one seems to care about:
#1 Asuka shows up and challenges the Queen
The recent past in the WWE has all been about making HISTORY with the women. First ever Hell in a Cell, women's main eventer, Royal Rumble, Elimination Chamber and now, it could be the first ever five-star women's match.
Charlotte Flair is expected to retain the SmackDown Women's title against Ruby Riot at Fastlane but what happens after that?
There's clearly no WrestleMania direction for the Queen and the only path that seems logical now has the Empress of Tomorrow waiting at the end.
WWE seems to be shifting to a Nia Jax vs. Alexa Bliss WrestleMania match and has hinted at giving the fans the match they deserve to see. Asuka vs. Charlotte for the SmackDown Women's Champion at WrestleMania!
Considering how stylistically compatible their in-ring styles are, Asuka and Charlotte could force Big Ol' Dave Meltzer to take some of those NJPW-reserved stars in favor of this potentially historic women's match.
Alright, that's the last time you see historic in the article.
