There is just one more big event before WrestleMania 31, and that is this Sunday’s WWE Fastlane pay-per-view, which is actually making its debut. Some scores are sure to be settled this weekend, but a lot of what happens at Fastlane will lead to some matches and more at WrestleMania 31. Let’s get to the full match line-up and see some predictions.
Honestly, the card for Fastlane is very impressive and has a lot going for it in its debut. Sting will appear, and hopefully say something for the first time in WWE. A couple of titles are on the line in big matches. Most of all, after the event, it will be known who is facing Brock Lesnar in the WrestleMania 31 main event.
Obviously, this is the biggest match on the card and one that has the most bearing on what the immediate future will bring. Fans will eat WWE alive if Roman Reigns ends up winning this match. They want Daniel Bryan to win and going up against Brock Lesnar, but it won’t happen quite that way.
Expect a double pin or Lesnar running out to destroy both men and cause a double disqualification or something like that. The only way to keep the fans happy is to have Bryan involved in a Triple Threat at WrestleMania 31 which will keep Reigns, the Rumble winner, moving ahead with his push.
Prediction: Shenanigans and both men win or lose
If they’re going to have this feud go through to WrestleMania, then expect Rusev to get the clean win here. John Cena will try to stand up for America, and this should be a pretty good brawl, but Rusev will make the WWE’s hero submit. Expect Cena to get revenge next month.
There’s been far too much tension in The Authority lately, and it will likely lead to Big Show knocking someone on his own team out. As Wrestling Inc. reported, WWE has confirmed this match now and expect the Fired Three to get some revenge.
Prediction: Ryback, Erick Rowan, and Dolph Ziggler
Cesaro and Tyson Kidd are not only talented, but they work great together as a team and are one of the most enjoyable teams in all of WWE. The Usos are great, but it’s time for them to lose the titles as it won’t really hurt them to be without. Titles around the waists of Cesaro and Kidd will push them to the roof.
Prediction and New Champs: The Brass Ring Club
The Intercontinental Title match between Bad News Barrett and Dean Ambrose could truly steal the show. There has been some great build-up for this one, and the two work well with one another in promos, so there should be no doubt that they will work well together in the ring as well. Expect the “Lunatic Fringe” to get his first singles’ championship.
Prediction and New Champion: Dean Ambrose
WrestleZone confirmed this match was happening this week as well, and it has been in the works for about a month now. Goldust has been wanting a match with his brother at WrestleMania for years, and this could lead to another match between the two before Goldust ends up retiring. The longtime veteran will take the rematch.
For some reason, the feud between the Bellas was just dropped completely, but it’s going to come back around. Brie is going to screw her sister over here and allow Paige to get her title back so the Bellas can battle it out leading up to WrestleMania.
Prediction and New Champion: Paige
WWE Fastlane has the looks of being a very good show, and there is going to be a lot happening. Don’t forget that Sting and Triple H will have their face-to-face as well, and this will set up their WrestleMania 31 match. This has all the makings of a fantastic pay-per-view, and get fans ever closer to the biggest event of the year.
