2017 WWE FastLane Preview

Alright wrestling fans, we have Raw’s final PPV before WrestleMania.  We will see a lot of stuff come together for Mania on Sunday.  All the belts are on the line this weekend.  Are we going to have new Champions rolling into Mania or will they keep it the way it is.  Even though Raw has been hard to watch the last few weeks, I think they will pull out all the stops here.  Let’s take a look at the matches and I will select my winners.

Sasha Banks vs. Nia Jax – Singles Match

Not huge into this match but still should be decent.  Nia Jax is twice the size of all her competitors.  Big girl for sure.  And the fact this match was made in an attempt to keep Sasha Banks out of Bayley’s corner is crazy.  I like Sasha but with an injury trying to keep her out for the rest of the night.  WINNER: Sasha Banks

Rich Swann and Akira Tozawa vs. The Brian Kendrick and Noam Dar – Tag Team Match

This tag team comes from the Cruiserweight division.  As I have said before, don’t give two shits about the Cruiserweights unless Neville is involved.  WINNER: Rich Swann and Akira Tozawa

Sami Zayn vs. Samoa Joe – Singles Match

This will be Samoa Joe’s first PPV since being called up from NXT a few weeks ago.  Triple H has been using Joe as his muscle and injured Seth Rollins who may miss Mania because of it.  This will be a very solid match.  Samoa Joe is extremely athletic for his size.  Dude can move.  Sami is the guy who never backs down from a fight.  I feel they will battle for a while here.  Could very well give best match of the night a run for its money.  WINNER: Samoa Joe

Neville (c) vs. Jack Gallagher – Singles Match for WWE Cruiserweight Championship

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, Neville is killing it has the heel of the Cruiserweight division and by far the best part of the division.  On the other side, I cannot stand Jack Gallagher playing the English Gentleman with his stupid umbrella.  Really can’t see WWE going away from Neville here.  I feel they will keep him the champ for sometime.  WINNER: Neville

Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson (c) vs. Enzo Amore and Big Cass – Tag Team Match for WWE Raw Tag Team Championship

Very surprised it took this long for Enzo and Cass to get a title match.  I think it did get derailed last year when Enzo got hurt but still, by far the crowd favorite.  Never got a good feeling from Gallows and Anderson.  They came in on the coat tails of AJ Styles and just aren’t very entertaining.  I would absolutely love to see Enzo and Cass enter WrestleMania as Raw Tag Team Champs.  That stadium will explode once their music hits.  Just thinking of 70,000 (plus or minus a few) going crazy yelling their intro gives me goosebumps.  Going with the heart on this one.  WINNER: Enzo Amore and Big Cass

Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman – Singles Match

Very excited for this match.  I thought Strowman was going to be a side guy forever when I first saw him.  He has been getting better and better every week.  His matches have been getting longer too.  Didn’t think he could build that type of stamina.  But I still don’t see WWE putting a lot of in his hands, especially with Mania right around the corner.  Pretty sure I am the only person in the world who doesn’t hate Roman Reigns but the guys brings it every night.  Solid in the ring and his mic work has been getting better.  I do feel he will carry this match while delivering multiple (double digits multiple) superman punches.  WINNER: Roman Reigns

Bayley (c) vs. Charlotte Flair – Singles Match for WWE Raw Women’s Championship

This very well could be the match of the night.  Don’t say it a lot with the Women’s matches but damn these two go all out.  Excited to see which way they will go with this.  Charlotte has yet to lose in a PPV match while Bayley has more W’s over Charlotte then any other woman on the roster.  No way does a Flair match go with out controversy.  Charlotte will have her side kick Dana Brook ringside while Sasha Banks is planning on being out there for Bayley (depends what happens with her match).  Something crazy will happen towards the end of the match.  I will be pulling for Bayley but do not think she will win.  Hopefully we get to see a rematch at WrestleMania.  WINNER: Charlotte Flair

Kevin Owens (c) vs. Goldberg – Singles Match for WWE Universal Championship

This match surprised me.  Really didn’t think they would have Goldberg in a Championship match before Mania.  I can understand after but before threw me for a loop.  That being said, I love the match up.  Only bad part is I can only see one ending.  How in the hell could WWE have Goldberg lose so close to Mania.  No fucking way.  Not possible.  WINNER: Goldberg

There you have it boys and girls.  WWE FastLane preview.  Like I said above, we should have a good idea of what Raw will have for WrestleMania at the end of the night.  Just 2 quick predictions at WrestleMania: Charlotte vs Bayley rematch with Bayley winning and Kevin Owens vs Chris Jericho for the US title.  Getting chills already.  Absolutely love this time of year!!  Pre-Show starts at 7 with game time at 8.  See you there.
