Fastlane 2019 : 7 matches that are likely to happen at this WWE PPV
#5 Asuka vs Mandy Rose (Smackdown Women's Championship)
Ever since making Becky Lynch tap out at Royal Rumble, Asuka has not made a single appearance on WWE programming. Going into Fastlane and WrestleMania, the Empress of Tomorrow should be featured more and more.
With all the focus on the Raw women's title scene, Asuka has been a somewhat forgotten figure. She needs something of note to do at WrestleMania before that, she must be showcased at Fastlane. However, there hardly is any competition for her on Smackdown at the moment.
Out of all of the Blue brand's current women, Mandy Rose certainly seems like the one most primed to challenge Asuka for the Smackdown Women's Championship. She was part of the final team eliminated from the Women's tag title Elimination Chamber match, having started the match, and has been pretty prominently featured on Smackdown for months now. It would be an okay match with the sole purpose of making Asuka look like a killer heading into the Show of Shows.
Prediction: Asuka destroys Mandy Rose
