WWE Fastlane Results
The last PPV on the WWE Network before Wrestlemania, and here are the results:
Preshow Match: Swann and Towzowa win, Only caught the end of this match, and sad I missed it.
Sami Zayn vs Samoa Joe – Joe went for Sami as soon as he got into the ring. Joe kicks at Sami over and over, showing he is going to be a force to be reckoned with. Zayn tried a shoulder tackle, but it all goes wrong from there. Surprisingly Zayn is holding in there despite the beating he is taking. Samoa Joe seems more brutal than ever. Zayn tries hard for a comeback, even gets Joe off his feet. But he stupidly attempts to go to the top rope, though he fights Joe off, but Joe still avoids his tomfoolery and gets a atomic drop to a 2 count. Joe gets another 2 count pinfall and there is some more back and forth in the match. Zayn gaining control again tried a sunset flip off the top, but it didnt work out, and Joe once again gains control and gets Zayn into submission. Samoa Joe by Submission.
Big Cass and Enzo Amore Vs Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson (C) for the Raw Tag Team titles – Enzo comes out and cuts a larger than life promo as usual. I love these guys. Big Cass really took to to Anderson, Too distracted to write about this match, but its a lot of great back and forth. Enzo alost has a pin but it is broken up, and in the ensuing chaos, Gallows and Anderson retain the belts.
Nia Jax Vs Sasha Banks – Nia Jax is absolutely dominating this match as I thought would happen in my predictions. Every time Sasha seems like she may have a chance, she gets torn back down, or stopped in her tracks. Sasha attempts high flying moves, submissions, and everything in her arsenal but nothing seems to work against Nia. When all seemed bleak Sasha Banks managed to roll Nia Jax into a small package for the win. Wow. What a match!!!
Cesaro Vs Jinder Mahal- This match up is pretty evenly matched. I probably won’t write much, as I rather watch it to be honest. IMO both of these guys are under appreciated, dominating forces in the WWE. Its great to see such big guys who move like they do. Cesaro picks up the win, and Jinder Mahal gets beat up at the hands of Rusev.
The Big Show comes to the ring, the bell rings, and we are now watching him tear Rusev apart. Rusev is usually pretty tough but TBS is making easy work of him. Rusev still has a bit of fight in him. Rusev almost gets a submission but TBS gets out, and wrecks him with a huge side slam. Rusev goes to the outside, but TBS drags him back by his hair, Rusev gets over for a second, but it doesnt last long. Rusev takes over by taking the big man down at the knees. Rusev gains the advantage and it looks bad for TBS but TBS comes back, and destroys Rusev, punches him out, and picks up the win.
Gentleman Jack Gallagher Vs Neville (C) for the Crusierweight Championship – Neville is pissed like a minute into the match, as Gallagher is pulling his goofy shit. Again too distracted by the actual match to give a play by play, but this has been extremely fast paced, and entertaining. I really dig watching both these guys work. Neville’s finisher is SIIIIIIIIIICK! He retains his belt. This was MOTN so far in my opinion.
Paul Heyman comes out and promotes Brock Lesner… That’s the sound of no one caring…
Its The New Day! And they have a bicycle powered ice cream cart, with a huge umbrella. New Day Pops! I wonder if they will be for sale at Mania?
Roman Reigns Vs Braun Strowman – Holy hell Strowman is powerful. This match is reminiscent of the women’s match earlier, as Reigns is getting no love, and gaining no traction. I thought these guys may break an announce table, but now I feel like they may just destroy the ring. These guys both move incredibly well for their size. It looks bad for Reigns, Strowman has worn him down. And Strowman goes the Spanish announce table… but Reigns cuts him off. they are back in the ring, and shocking Reigns is still on his feet and in control. Strowman tried for a choke slam but Reigns cuts him off and gives him a back drop. Reigns goes for the superman punch, is cut off and cut down. Both men back to the outside, and Reigns end up through the table! What do I win? lol Strowman throws Reigns back into the ring, but Reigns gets the spear on him. Strowman kicks out. Reigns gets two Superman punches in but than gets cut off again. Somehow Strowman gets on the top rope but it doesn’t end well for him, and Reigns takes the opportunity to pick up the victory.
Charlotte Flair Vs Bayley(c) for the Raw Women’s Championship- Both women look ready to fight. This match is back and forth with ferocity, but no matter how she tries, Charlotte cannot gain the upper hand, Bayley is fighting her move for move. Watching this match makes me incredibly happy for where we are right now in women’s wrestling. (in fact overall the women’s division has become really fun to watch). Charlotte escapes to the outside, much like her father would, and Bayley takes the bait and follows. She gets cut off and Charlotte tosses her back in the ring to put the boot to her. No matter how Bayley tries to counter, Charlotte has gained control of the match and isn’t giving in easily. Charlotte is straight up punishing Bayley, with submission holds, and the simple fact that she can easily overpower her. Bayley isn’t giving up easily. Charlotte is running her through the ringer. Poor Bayley. She isn’t having a very easy time holding onto her belt. She better dig deep and find that heart that loves wresting so much that she would take this abuse. Bayley gets a second wind, and manages to turn things in her favor. She gets a 2 count on Charlotte. Bayley tries to set Charlotte up in the corner, but Charlotte is still too with it to go down without a fight. Bayley goes to the top, but Charlotte takes her down. Its back and forth, Charlotte climbs to the top, Bayley flips her off the top, but only gets a two count. Charlotte cuts her off again. Charlotte begins talking to herself in the ring, and almost gets rolled up. She fights Bayley off again, sending Bayley to the outside. Charlotte goes to the top, but Sasha Banks runs out and rips her off the corner, and gives her a few good punches. Bayley gets a few more moves in on Charlotte, and it ends with a suplex, and Bayley retains her championship. With the interference will she get her title stripped like Naomi did? Seriously…
Kevin Owens (c) Vs Goldberg -Does anyone really care? I don’t, but Ill write the result when the match is done…Huge Shock Goldbeg Wins!
