WWE Fastlane 2019: Predicting the rest of the match card
- Fastlane is the final PPV before Wrestlemania 35
Fastlane 2019 will take place on March 10, 2019, in the Quickens Loans Arena, in Cleveland, Ohio. It will start at 7 PM on the WWE Network while the kickoff show will start at 6 PM on a number of platforms including the WWE Network and WWE's Youtube Channel.
This pay per view is the last event before WrestleMania 35 making this an extremely important show. Four matches have already been confirmed for Fastlane. Kofi Kingston was just taken out of his WWE Championship match and replaced by Kevin Owens who will now challenge Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 35.
Mandy Rose will challenge Asuka for the Smackdown Women's Championship for the first time in her WWE career. Shane McMahon and The Miz will receive a Smackdown Tag Team Championship rematch against the current champions the Usos.
The Women's Tag Team Titles will also be defended for the first time in WWE as the Boss and Hug Connection (Sasha Banks and Bayley) defend their championships against Nia Jax and Tamina.
Let's look at a few other matches that could potentially take place:
#5 Intercontinental Championship: Finn Balor (c.) vs Bobby Lashley (with Lio Rush)
Bobby Lashley will likely receive a rematch against Finn Balor. He became Intercontinental Champion by defeating Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins in a triple threat match before defending his championship alongside his manager Lio Rush against Finn Balor.
Finn Balor was able to win the Intercontinental Championship by pinning Lio Rush. Because Bobby Lashley lost the Intercontinental Championship without being pinned, he will likely receive a rematch.
It is even more likely that this match will happen because this feud has continued after Elimination Chamber with Finn Balor recently defending the Intercontinental Championship against Lio Rush which was a week after Finn Balor and Ricochet defeated Lio Rush and Bobby Lashley. The two have not yet had the chance to have a truly great match and they deserve one more chance to do so.
Prediction: Finn Balor retains the Intercontinental Championship
