WWE Fastlane 2018 Match Card

The reality is that every match on the card won't make the Match of the Year nominees list. As far as what Michael Cole would consider "WrestleMania implications" are concerned, there is next to nothing. But I also wouldn't be surprised if this match ends in a DQ with the Bludgeon Brothers playing a major role.

Baron Corbin spoke with The Times-Picayune about winning the WWE Championship, costing John Cena a trip to WrestleMania, and his dream 'Mania opponent. No offense to any of the rest of these competitors, but when Shinsuke Nakamura won the Royal Rumble, he said he wanted to face AJ Styles. To put the kibosh on that now would just be a giant letdown; but hey, it's never beyond the realm of possibility in today's WWE to deliberately book against the wants and needs of the fanbase.

This Sunday, WWE will present their final brand-exclusive pay-per-view with the SmackDown specific Fastlane event.

Meanwhile, the rest of the card is a mess.

The camera recorded Hickman saying "he's not learning!" before a trainee confronts Johnnie Jermaine Rush for jaywalking . Prior to the Thursday announcement, the City of Asheville had filed a petition to have the body camera footage released.

What may be more interesting, however, is what happened behind the scenes earlier this year, as Ziggler reportedly extended his contract with the WWE, making him one of the highest paid Superstars in the company with his new deal. "Loyalty. Respect." gimmick, the fact remains that Cena isn't merely a gimmick. The match itself should be pretty damn good, but once again, this was hastily thrown together and has zero impact on the story. I don't expect the titles to change hands tonight, so these matches are a little uninteresting.

Charlotte Flair will defend her SmackDown Women's Championship against Ruby Riott while U.S. Champion Bobby Roode squares off against Randy Orton. That list includes The New Day but the trio have returned for second helpings and they think they can best the twins.

Their match hasn't had a huge build but it does have the potential to steal the show on Sunday night. A five-time women's champion - and the WWE's last Divas Champion - Charlotte should enter WrestleMania as champion.
