Jay's Ways - WWE Fastlane 2019 Preview Submitted by Justin Watry on 03/09/2019 at 12:41 AM
Let's do this.
WWE Fastlane Predictions
Rey Mysterio vs. Andrade
This feud really deserves to be finished up at WWE WrestleMania 35. Not on the Fastlane Kickoff Show. As mentioned in the 411 Forecast Wrestling Podcast, we need more from these two and need a proper stipulation Lucha Libre styled SHOWDOWN! Make that for with Andrade getting the big spotlight on the grand stage. Rey Mysterio can win here.
WINNER: Flip A Coin
WWE Raw Tag Team Championship Match: The Revival vs. Chad Gable & Bobby Roode vs. Ricochet & Aleister Black
Soooooo can we get a name for Chad Gable and Bobby Roode? My girlfriend simply calls them Glorious. Does that work? Either way, it appears the two kinda had a bit of a heel turn on Monday night. That tells me they will take the fall on Sunday rather than the ultra popular newcomers from NXT. Speaking of, Ricochet and Aleister Black are spectacular. Much more than the Raw tag team division, that's for sure. The Revival win, the NXT stars shine, and the former champs lose.
WINNER: The Revival
WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championship Match: The Usos vs. Shane McMahon & The Miz
The Usos vs. The Hardyz for the Smackdown Live Tag Team Titles is the plan for WrestleMania 35. That means one more loss for The Miz and Shane McMahon. In Cleveland, Miz's hometown. With Miz's dad at ringside. Smells like a turn is coming. From Miz or Shane. Those two will wrestle at WM35, fans will complain until bell time, and then it will be awesome.
WINNER: The Usos
WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Match: Sasha Banks & Bayley vs. Nia Jax & Tamina
No explanation needed.
WINNER: Bayley/Sasha Banks
WWE Smackdown Women’s Championship Match: Asuka vs. Mandy Rose
You almost forget that Asuka is the current Women's Champion for the blue brand. She beat Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch to claim the title in December. Plus, a month latwr, she made The Man tap out clean. Yet, now she is feuding with Mandy Rose on the Road to WM...and might face Lacey Evans next? Uh oh. A far cry from two years undefeated, NXT Women's Champion and Royal Rumble winner.
Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch
Pretty easy to call, unless WWE wants to give us a funky finish to prolong the inevitable another week or two. I hope not. Becky Lynch wins the Fastlane main event to go onto win the WrestleMania main event. Simple stuff. First Charlotte, then Ronda Rousey. More discussion on this entire situation is in the 411 Forecast Wrestling Podcast. I'm looking forward to it.
WINNER: Becky Lynch
The Shield vs. Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley
Of these six men, we only know for certain what one man is doing come next month. That is Seth Rollins. The rest...who knows? Is Lio Rush wrestling Lashley? Is Drew McIntyre taking on Kurt Angle? What about Baron Corbin? That's not even bringing up Dean Ambrose who is set to leave the company soon and Roman Reigns who just came back. Complete opposite ends Of the stick. My solution - go back to Reigns vs. Ambrose as was the original plan late last year. Do another fake out turn from The Lunatic Fringe and have a WM caliber battle with The Big Dog before departing WWE. Until then, The Shield gets one final moment together.
WINNER: The Shield
WWE Championship Match: Daniel Bryan vs. Kevin Owens
Sami Zayn returns to cost Kevin Owens the WWE Championship. They have a bout at Mania, which clears the path for Kofi Kingston to challenge Bryan for the title. Win win! As much of a mess as this whole picture looks like right now, I do believe the company has an endgame in mind. Bryan walks into WM35 one year after coming out of retirement as the WWE Champion. Very cool story. Never say never folks...
WINNER: Daniel Bryan
That is right. After years of teasing it, I have officially started up what is planned to be a weekly podcast for 411mania. The debut episode dropped on Friday and covers a bunch of topics. From WWE Fastlane to Roman Reigns' crown reactions to All Elite Wrestling to WrestleMania 36 in Tampa Bay, Florida to Ronda Rousey leaving the company to much more! Here is the link:
