WWE Fastlane 2019 is coming to you live out of the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, this Sunday, March 10th, on the WWE Network. We’ve got the match card, as well as our predictions and overall thoughts on the show, for you to check out below. Let us know what you think is going to happen at Fastlane by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.
Rey Mysterio vs. Andrade
Rey Mysterio and Andrade are both stellar performers and have had nothing but awesome matches since first locking horns in a WWE ring. Although this match has already been announced as one that will appear on the pre-show, these two are sure to pull out all the stops for the Cleveland crowd. We’re calling it now: this is going to be a show-stealer.
Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura vs. The New Day (Xavier Woods and Big E)
Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura, one of the newest tag teams on the SmackDown Live roster, have been battling their way through the division, attempting to make a name for themselves as a team to respect.
In the pre-show of Fastlane, they will take on some of their toughest competition yet in the form of five-time WWE Tag Team Champions, The New Day, represented by Big E and Xavier Woods.
The New Day will come close to taking the victory, but Rusev and Nakamura’s hunt for tag team notoriety will be complete when they defeat the highly decorated duo.
Winner: Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura
Asuka (c) vs. Mandy Rose
SmackDown Live Women’s Championship Match
Mandy Rose has proven that she will do pretty much anything to ensure that she comes out on top, from faking injuries to enlisting her tag team partner, Sonya Deville, to cause distractions for her.
We have a feeling these underhanded tactics will finally fail her on Sunday, however, allowing Asuka to retain her SmackDown Live Women’s Championship.
The Usos (c) vs. The Miz and Shane McMahon
SmackDown Live Tag Team Championship Match
Tensions between The Usos and Shane O’Miz have been on the rise for weeks at this point, so this one will most likely be brutal. Between Shane’s propensity for jumping from tall objects and The Usos’ hard-hitting offense, these two teams will tear each other (and themselves) apart in pursuit of the SmackDown Live Tag Team Championships.
The Usos will emerge victorious, sparking the inevitable rivalry between The Miz and Shane O’Mac.
Winner: The Usos
The Boss ‘n’ Hug Connection (Bayley and Sasha Banks) (c) vs. Nia Jax and Tamina
Women’s Tag Team Championship Match
There is no question that Nia Jax and Tamina make formidable opponents for the Boss ‘n’ Hug Connection, but a month-long run for the first Women’s Tag Team Champions in 30 years? We don’t think so.
Sasha Banks and Bayley will have their work cut out for them against Jax and Tamina, but will somehow pull out the win, retaining those beautiful championships.
Winner: Boss ‘n’ Hug Connection
The Revival (c) vs. Aleister Black and Ricochet vs. Chad Gable and Bobby Roode
Raw Tag Team Championship Match
The feud between these three teams is relatively fresh, but has already turned nasty. The Revival defeated Gable and Roode for the Raw Tag Team Championships a few weeks ago, and when The Glorious Ones saw a new team getting a shot, they decided to take matters into their own hands.
Ricochet and Aleister Black have had an impressive string of matches since their debut as a tag team and, given their opponents in this bout, we can’t wait to see what kind of stunts they pull as they attempt to capture the gold.
Even though Ricochet and Black will give this their all (along with Gable and Roode), The Revival will sneak out a win, retaining their championships.
Winner: The Revival
The Shield vs. Baron Corbin, Bobby Lashley, and Drew McIntyre
Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre, and Baron Corbin have been the resident bullies of Raw for quite some time, dominating some of the most fearsome competitors on the roster, including The Monster Among Men, Braun Strowman.
But now that Roman Reigns has made his return to the ring and convinced his fellow Hounds of Justice to fight together “one last time,” The Shield will show the evil trio that they aren’t the
Winner: The Shield
Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair
If Becky Lynch Wins, She Is Added to the Raw Women’s Championship Match at WrestleMania
With the first ever Women’s Main Event of WrestleMania in WWE history on the horizon, Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, and Ronda Rousey have held nothing back in their feud over the Raw Women’s Championship.
Not long ago, Becky Lynch was replaced by Charlotte Flair in the Mania match, which did not sit well with Lynch, or Rousey, who demanded to face her biggest rival in the show of shows. Instead of removing Charlotte from the match, Becky will be given the chance to re-enter it, all she has to do is defeat Charlotte at Fastlane. Which, of course, she will do.
Winner: Becky Lynch
Daniel Bryan (c) vs. Kevin Owens
WWE Championship Match
To The New Day and much of the WWE Universe’s dismay, Kofi Kingston was replaced by Kevin Owens in this WWE Championship match.
As we still need #KofiMania, and Daniel Bryan made it clear on SmackDown that he has far more “friends” than Owens (who will undoubtedly assist him in his quest for victory), Bryan will defeat Owens and retain the Championship… so he can lose it to Kofi Kingston at WrestleMania.
Winner: Daniel Bryan
