Fastlane 2019 : 7 matches that are likely to happen at this WWE PPV
Elimination Chamber is now in the books, meaning that there is only one pay-per-view before WrestleMania 35 now. That pay-per-view is probably the most frustrating unnecessary one on the standard WWE calendar, Fastlane.
WWE has never produced a really good Fastlane event, with the shows ranging from bad to average. Some infuriating moments have happened on this show, like various Roman Reigns victories and Goldberg's 20-second Universal title victory over Kevin Owens.
This year, however, has the chance to right some of those wrongs and turn it into a more positive show. This WrestleMania is the most exciting one in years, and that bumps up the anticipation for Fastlane a little bit.
Some of the happenings at the freshly concluded Elimination Chamber pay-per-view have also contributed to a more exciting Fastlane. There were some good and some bad on this show. But anyway, there are angles that require conclusions as well as building blocks for WrestleMania.
Here are seven likely for WWE Fastlane 2019.
#7 Sasha Banks and Bayley vs Nia Jax and Tamina (Women's Tag Team Championship)
Sasha Banks and Bayley won an incredible Elimination Chamber match to become the first-ever WWE Women's Tag Team Champions, last eliminating Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville after a gutsy showing throughout the entire match.
The biggest obstacle they faced was in the form of the Samoan Slaughterhouse. Nia Jax and Tamina entered the match last and made an impact, eliminating two teams. Their run of dominance was halted when Jax ran through one of the pods.
That created an opening for Tamina to be ganged up on and therefore, pinned. Surely this was a way for Nia Jax to be protected for an upcoming title match. The two powerhouses are going to be the first challengers for Sasha and Bayley's newly won tag titles.
It would be a mountain to climb for the two former NXT Women's Champions but would set up nicely for a potentially much bigger match at WrestleMania. The babyfaces will find a way to topple Nia and Tamina.
Prediction: Sasha and Bayley retain the titles
