Fastlane 2019: Predicting the outcome of each WWE championship match
Since its introduction, Fastlane holds a special place on the road to WrestleMania. The 2019 event has led to WWE recalling some familiar faces and calling up a few top NXT superstars to the main roster to make the event something worthwhile.
Fastlane is a relatively new pay-per-view and hasn’t seen too many memorable moments. However, this installment is sure to give fans some things to remember for a long long time with the match card that is set.
A total of seven matches will be fought on the main card, with five being championship matches. Other than that, a high-profile and high-flying kickoff match has also been set for the event.
With the return of Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens, fans will get to watch their favorite superstars in action after quite a long time.
With that said, let's take a look at the five championship matches for the event and predict the outcome of each match which will have an impact on WrestleMania 35.
#5 The Revival (c) vs. Aleister Black and Ricochet vs. Chad Gable and Bobby Roode - Triple threat tag team match for the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship
The Revival has had a very tough time on the main roster. Even though it took them months to win the Raw Tag Team Championship, they finally did so on the February 11 episode of Raw.
However, this hasn’t really eased their worries as they have been losing matches left, right and center even after their championship win. The arrival of Ricochet and Aleister Black hasn’t really helped their cause either, and the duo has beaten the Revival twice already in three weeks and taken the Tag Team Division by storm.
This has also led to people forgetting the former Tag Team Champions Bobby Roode and Chad Gable, who’ve been awaiting their rematch, and will finally get it a month after losing the titles.
Currently, The Revival is the only solid tag team on the Raw division, and are certainly the most deserving title holders. Bobby Roode and Chad Gable don’t need to win the championships again and should branch off to singles competition as the Raw mid-card has opened up once again.
Black and Ricochet have provided unlimited entertainment on both Raw and SmackDown, but it’s too early to put the titles on them already as they are also competing in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic on NXT.
Even though The Revival have been losing more matches, it seems highly likely that they will retain the titles on Sunday.
Prediction: The Revival will retain the Raw Tag Team Championship.
