WWE Fastlane 2018 Results

Fastlane 2018 was no different, with five things in particular that stood out as noteworthy and everything else just eating up time. March is here and now it's SmackDown's turn to iron out their plans for next month's big dance. From Street Fights to even a Tag Team Hell in a Cell encounter that ended their initial feud, the matches between these two teams showed a fire in tag team wrestling that audiences been longing for since the inaugural Tag Team Ladder Match back at No Mercy 1999.

SmackDown itself is in dire straits lately, with poor attendance and a meager product that has failed to maximize its talent. Then we can stop fronting like this John Cena vs. Undertaker match isn't going to happen.

On paper, the show looked fairly unexciting. THIS is your SO OF COURSE preview of WWE FAST IS JUST ONE ADJECTIVE TO DESCRIBE THE... They've crossed paths with both teams after that intense promo on the 27th of February of Smackdown Live.

" Randy Orton won the U.S. title for the first time, beating Bobby Roode with an RKO".

While Orton celebrates, Jinder Mahal comes to the ring and attacks The Viper. The robed one has held the US title for just less than two months and it doesn't seem like it should end here. But, in facing the grassroots-popular Rusev, "getting booed" seemed a rare and rash risk for a Head Writer usually defined by a safe and repetitive approach.

The Usos (C) vs. These could be a less charismatic Rated-RKO.

The Usos are favorites (-175) against The New Day (+125).

The New Day vs.

Stokes to miss Lord's Test against India
The trial is set for August 6, which effectively rules the all-rounder out of England's Test match against India three days later. The two other men charged - Ryan Hale , 28, and Ryan Ali , 26 - attended in person and also pleaded not guilty.

Do you agree with me?

If we weren't already, Fastlane all but guarantees a Six-Man Tag at WrestleMania for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships. Riott, while talented, is brand new on main roster.

For the uninitiated, Nakamura had won the men's 2018 Royal Rumble back in January.

Instead of feeling sorry for himself, he could become so distressed that he looks for every last-ditch effort to cling on to the WrestleMania card, whether it's risky to himself or to others.

Now, however, it suits him better since Rusev needed a strong showing. To the best of my knowledge, Asuka hasn't yet chosen an opponent after her Royal Rumble win. Also nothing says Ruby Riot like this, which...

Don't expect Charlotte to lose her title, either. Baron Corbin had adopted a similar strategy. Basically its the three guys that SmackDown is relying on to carry the show plus three other guys. I'd really like to see Rusev and Roode at Wrestlemania. That's what your booking has done to him.

BOB KAPUR: The danger here is that the potentially butt-kicking Mania match between AJ Styles and Nakamura will get diluted by adding a third person.

Oh well, there's always NXT (which has sucked the life force out of Smackdown in order to return to being worthy of a weekly watch). It's not even up for debate. In the end though, there's only one possible outcome.
