In the weeks building up to the most unnecessary of shows, Fastlane, we saw some oddly-timed callups from NXT, some clear favoritism in the women’s divisions, R-Truth’s open challenges, and a lot of good wrestling! Listen to episode 122 of the Wrestling House Show to hear all about it plus much, much more!
Xavier Woods and Big E take on Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura as we prepare for Fastlane.
Being the last PPV before Wrestlemania, it felt like they were playing it safe and predictable with Fastlane. Most of the matches weren’t great, there were some filler segments, and the main events didn’t really deliver. There were some bright spots on the show, but overall this one felt like an average (yet long) episode of RAW.
A good cruiserweight tag match and a few backstage segments made this a decent warmup for Fastlane.
Fastlane was a mixed show. It had some very good matches, but it also had some not so great matches and very strange booking.
The Fastlane Kickoff show features a two out of three falls match for the US Title that was good enough to be on Fastlane, but might have been better on the kickoff show since it got more time. Plus the usual pre-show analysis and AJ Styles answering questions in the Social Media Lounge.
Predictions for what might happen at WWE Fastlane, plus a really early and pretty unlikely Wrestlemania prediction!
