Wrestling Reviews: Fastlane Predictions

Soooo today is the Fastlane PPV and i’m now all caught up with Raw & Smackdown so I now know all that is going down later today……..so with that said, I just want to share a few of my predictions on who I think are going to win and who I want to win in the last stop before WrestleMania PPV, there’s some pretty interesting matches on the Fastlane card so I look forward to sharing my thoughts with you guys on my predictions for it.

Let’s get to the predictions shall we!?

Match Card: All of these are not in any order just to give you all a heads up

Daniel Bryan Vs Kevin Owens (WWE Championship)

So this matchup was originally supposed to be Kofi Kingston going against Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship instead, but thanks to Vince McMahon, Kofi was replace and put in his place was none other then the returning Kevin Owens……….now I don’t hate Kevin Owens, I think he’s actually a really great performer, I just don’t understand why Vince thought it was best to replace Kofi mid way of him signing the contract for the match to happen officially and tell Kofi someone deserves it way more than he does, mind you he’s been wrestling in WWE for 11 years………….

Anyway we’re talking prediction here so let me try and give you my prediction for this matchup……..okay so I always have a bit of trouble with giving predictions, but i’m going to do my best here.

Prediction: This ones actually a little tough to predict, only because it could go two ways here, with Kevin Owens returning last week on Smackdown Live (Feb 26, 2019) and how this past Tuesday went, I feel he could somehow win the title, however Daniel has been defending his WWE Championship very well since winning it against Styles, plus he has Rowan by his side so he has the advantage a little over Owens with that……..

With Mustafa Ali returning this past Tuesday though…….he could maybe possibly help Owens even the odds during the match, but it’s most likely going to be just Owens later today so……..I don’t know, it’s kinda hard to decide……..

If I had to choose though……..i’d probably go with Kevin Owens, that’s where my feeling is going for and I think WWE is going to set up a feud between Owens & Kofi somehow and what better way to set it up then having Owens win the title from Daniel and then Kofi still upset that Kevin Owens took his spot goes after Kevin for it……..

I know it might seems like a weird way to set up a feud, but I mean come there’s been weirder feud set ups before so this ones not that bad, but again this match could go two different ways Daniel could retain and maybe him and Mustafa feud or Kevin and him continue to battle it out or Owens wins tonight and him and Kofi face off or who knows maybe they’ll make it a fatal 4 way where it’s Daniel Vs Kofi Vs Owens Vs Mustafa at Mania, but we’ll see how this match plays out later tonight…..

The Shield Vs Baron Corbin, Bobby Lashley & Drew McIntyre:

This match was made this past Monday Night Raw, Roman was trying to get the band back together it took a little convincing for Seth and a little more convincing for Dean, but in the end we got the Shield once again and later tonight we will see them face off against Corbin, McIntyre and Lashley.

Predictions: This ones not as hard to decide, i’m going for the Shield to win this one, we all know when the Shield are together, they are pretty unstoppable, plus I don’t really want Corbin, McIntyre & Lashley winning so I know the Shield will bring it to them tonight and looking forward to watching that happen!!

Becky Lynch Vs Charlotte: If Becky Lynch Wins She’ll Be Added To The WrestleMania Match Making It A Triple Threat, But If She Loses She’s Out……..

We all know the story here, The Man wins the Royal Rumble and gains the opportunity to face Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania, but just like Kofi (although she was first) Vince decided to replace Becky and go with Charlotte to face Ronda instead…….

Becky gets suspended from WWE for 60 Days, Becky not happy with being replaced, continues to show up wherever Charlotte & Ronda are and attacks them, gets arrested, Ronda asks Stephanie to reinstate Becky and add her to the WrestleMania match Stephanie tells her that ain’t happening, Ronda tells her that Vince needs to make the right decision, leaves the Raw Women’s Championship at Stephanie’s feet……….

Stephanie then announces that the charges on Becky Lynch were dropped and that her 60 day suspension was lifted and that her and Charlotte would be facing off for the Raw Women’s Championship at Fastlane originally, but only if Becky signed a Hold Harmless Agreement so that way if anything happens to Becky during the match she doesn’t go and sue WWE for it, which of course Becky signed……..

Ronda then shows up pretty peeved off about Stephanie’s decision when she laid down the title, she asks for it back, and then goes rogue, attacks Becky and Charlotte on this past Raw and that’s how this match was born…….you guys all caught up!? Alrighty then let’s talk predictions then……

Prediction: Although I like Charlotte, My heart wants Becky Lynch to win so that way she can be added to the match at WrestleMania (even though she shouldn’t have to be added considering she won the royal rumble and all) and main event Mania like she was meant to in the first place…….

I really do hope Becky Lynch wins tonight because she deserves to go to WrestleMania, plus it would be cool to see Ronda Vs Charlotte Vs Becky in a triple threat match for the Raw Women’s Championship, I look forward to watching how this match goes.

Bayley & Sasha Vs Nia Jax & Tamina (Women’s Tag Team Championships)

It was at last months Elimination Chamber that Bayley & Sasha made history by becoming the first ever Women’s Tag Team Champions defeating the likes of Carmella & Naomi, The IIconics, Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville, The Riot Squad and the women their facing later on tonight, Nia Jax & Tamina.

We know Nia Jax & Tamina are pretty good team, but so are Bayley & Sasha, last Monday (Feb 25, 2019) we saw Bayley pin Nia Jax during their match by landing her finisher and This past Monday, we saw Tamina pin Sasha Banks in their match (which I called) after Nia helped with a distraction a bit, tonight we will see both teams go at it for the WWE Women’s tag team championship, who will win, no sure, let’s talk prediction for this match……..

Prediction: I would like to see Bayley & Sasha keep the title, only because I want to see how long they’re able to keep it, we all know that Sasha when it comes to defending a title, it’s not really successful and as for Bayley………her title runs aren’t that memorable, but because they won the tag titles and we know that together Sasha & Bayley are a really great team and because they work well as a team, they’re going to try and make sure they don’t lose the titles anytime soon……….

That being said though, I also feel that if they don’t keep their guard up in their match against Nia & Tamina with just even one tiny little mess up or slight distraction, there’s a high chance that Nia & Tamina will leave Fastlane with those titles, sooooo let’s hope Bayley & Sasha keep the titles tonight………

The Miz & Shane Vs The Usos (SDL Tag Team Championship)

The Usos won the SDL Tag Team Championships from Miz & Shane at last months Elimination Chamber, it was pretty great match as well, well for the Usos that is, Miz wasn’t happy that he was the one that got them to lost the title, so he came back to SDL after being told to take the next few days off he asked Shane to make another match so they could get them back,

The Usos, being the Usos then showed up and made fun of Miz, calling him a loser, fraud, failure and all those kind of synonyms, which provoked Shane to stand up for Miz and make the match at tonights Fastlane PPV.

Don’t really have anything else to say on this, well I just wanted to say that the build up for this was actually pretty good, especially when it comes to the Usos who couldn’t help, but make fun of both Shane & Miz, this past Tuesday’s Smackdown Live was one of the best, at least I thought!!!

Predictions: I love the Usos as some of you may know, but I don’t know Fastlane takes place in Miz’s hometown of Cleveland OH and with it being a hometown show for him, it could go two ways he could surprise everyone and win the tag titles in his hometown…….or it’ll be the opposite and the Usos retain in Miz’s hometown which he will be really upset about………

i’m not going to choose for this one because I want to see this match and I want to see which way it goes so as much as I love the Usos and I think they are a great tag team and they know how to defend the tag titles, i’m just going to observe this one without predicting what could possible happen during the match and whoever wins it, wins……..so no prediction here on this match……..

The Revival Vs Alesister Black & Ricochet Vs Chad Gable & Bobby Roode (Raw Tag Team Championship)

This is interesting……..we had Ricochet & Alesister Black come up to the main roster about 3 weeks ago along with Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa as well and they now have a shot to become the new Raw Tag Team Champions, now I like both Aleister Black & Ricochet, I think their both extremely talented and they’re actually a pretty great team as well.

The Revival are also a pretty great team, I mean they are Raw tag team champions and when you watch them in the ring, you can clearly see how talented they are…….Chad Gable & Bobby Roode, well…………separately they are good and they perform nicely in ring, together though……….

You know I haven’t really seen them perform well as a team, to be honest I find them to be a really odd pairing, I thought Miz & Shane were odd, but they are really odd, however again I haven’t really seen them be a tag team so maybe they are really good I don’t know, i’ll watch them and let you know later when I do a review for Fastlane, but let’s talk predictions here.

Prediction: Hmmm this is a little tricky………I feel there could be a possibility that Ricochet & Alesister Black become the new Raw tag team champions tonight, however if i’m being honest I feel that them winning the titles tonight, I feel like that would be a little too early, but if they do I won’t be upset about it because I like them, that being said though, The Revival could also retain and leave Fastlane still Raw Tag Team Champions, I know i’m leaving Chad Gable & Bobby Roode out, but I don’t feel they’re gonna win it………

I could be wrong though, they could end up dominating everyone and becoming the new Raw tag team champions again for all I know, but I don’t know, we’ll see what happens in this match up, but I think i’m gonna go with either Ricochet & Alesister becoming new champs or that The Revival retain….

Asuka Vs Mandy Rose (SDL Women’s Championship)

So we all know that this match is happening because Mandy pinned Askua on 3 weeks ago on Smackdown Live and that’s why she’s getting a shot at the SDL Women’s championship…………I don’t have anything else to say with this so i’m just going to predict this one……

Prediction: Asuka retains, I want Asuka to retain!!! I don’t want Mandy winning this match, i’m not saying she’s not good or anything and that she doesn’t deserve it, I just don’t want her to win, so i’m hoping Asuka retains.

So that was every match off the main card, as for the kick off card I don’t think i’m going to watch it, but i’ll do quick predictions for it.

Kickoff Card:

The New Day (Big E & Xavior Woods) Vs Shinsuke Nakamura & Rusev:

Prediction: I want the New Day to win, although I like Rusev & Shinsuke, i’m going for the New Day here to win this match

Rey Mysterio Vs Andrade Cien Almas:

Prediction: Rey Mysterio wins this match, i’m not really sure actually I want to say Rey wins this match because I like Rey Mysterio, but Andrade could win too soooo i’m just gonna leave this as unpredicted, these two based off the matches i’ve seen them in, they have an unfinished rivalry between them i’m guessing stemmed from NXT and moving forward from that so I might watch this and see what happens here, who knows………

That’s all of my predictions for Fastlane, now we just wait and see how the show goes, yaaay finished this before the show started!!!!

All The Love ❤ ❤
