WWE Fast Lane Preview #WWEFastLane #FastLane

By @B_Rock1978

Next stop on the Road to Wrestlemania 31, stops in Memphis, Tennessee. It's the debut pay per view called WWE Fast Lane. WWE decided to eliminate (no pun intended) the annual Elimination Chamber pay per view, due to the chamber being a pain in the butt to set up. I'll have to admit I really enjoyed Elimination Chamber and I'm sad to see it go. Hopefully, Fast Lane can fill that void. Let's review what WWE has in store for us tonight.

- "WWE United States Championship Match": Rusev (c) vs. John Cena: Last month during the Royal Rumble post game show, Cena was set to be interviewed by Renee Young. Rusev interrupted Cena and got in Cena's face. Rusev and Cena had to be restrained and Triple H announced they'd go one on one at Fast Lane, the next night on the snowed in episode of RAW. In the weeks to come, Rusev put Cena down with an eye injury. Cena would return the following week and attack Rusev, leaving the Russian laid out. Rusev has vowed to destroy the WWE's golden boy, stating that Cena is an old man and past his prime. Cena has vowed to end Rusev's no pin or submit streak and show Rusev that this old man can still go 100%. Will Rusev succeed and bring down the leader of the Cenation? Will the WWE's top dog, John Cena, add Rusev to his list of victims? It's the WWE's version of Rocky Balboa vs. Ivan Drago.

- Triple H and Sting Go Face to Face: Sting made his first appearance ever in WWE when he interfered in The Authority vs. Team Cena match at Survivor Series. During Sting's interference, Sting laid out Triple H with the "Scorpion Death Drop" and  caused The Authority to lose the match. A month later, The Authority were back in charge of RAW and fired Dolph Ziggler, Erick Rowan and Ryback. John Cena faced Kane, Big Show and Seth Rollins a few weeks later and needed to win to get Ziggler, Rowan and Ryback's jobs back. Sting would again appear, point at Triple H and distract the whole Authority. During the distraction Cena pinned Rollins and got back Ziggler, Rowan and Ryback's jobs. An irate Triple H vowed to teach Sting a lesson if he ever shows his face in the House of McMahon again. During the snowed in RAW, Triple H dared Sting to show up at Fast Lane and meet him face to face. Sting would accept Triple H's meeting a few weeks later. What does The Authority have in store for Sting? Did Sting come alone or does he have backup?

- "#1 Contender's Match For The WWE World Heavyweight Championship At Wrestlemania": Roman Reigns vs. Daniel Bryan: After apparent controversy surrounded Roman Reigns' Royal Rumble win, Triple H, put Reigns' Wrestlemania WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match on the line tonight. Daniel Bryan, the WWE Universe's fan favorite, defeated Seth Rollins to get to tonight's match. After earning his shot, Bryan and Reigns became a bickering duo, while forced to team with each other. Bryan and Reigns consistently tried to one up each other and prove to the world why he should be meeting Brock Lesnar. Tempers really flared between the two, a week before Fast Lane. Bryan and Reigns would have a huge brawl with each other, not wanting to wait till Fast Lane and having to be separated by WWE officials. Bryan and Reigns go one on one tonight with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match at Wrestlemania on the line. Both men vow to headline Wrestlemania against Brock Lesnar.

- "WWE Divas Championship Match": Nikki Bella (c) vs. Paige: Paige earned a WWE Divas Championship Match against Nikki a few weeks back. Paige has had her issues with Nikki for the past few months. The Bellas look to stay on top of the Divas Division. Paige has been on a roll the past couple weeks, picking up wins and gaining momentum. Can The Bellas pull off twin magic and allow Nikki to retain her title? Can the Queen of Goth, Paige, finally knock Nikki off her high horse and win the gold? Both ladies look to leave the WWE Divas Champion.

- "WWE Intercontinental Championship Match": Bad News Barrett (c) vs. Dean Ambrose: Barrett returned to WWE from an injury a month ago and immediately won back the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Dean Ambrose set his sights on Barrett and the title after beating the champ a few weeks back. Barrett refused to grant Ambrose a title shot, stating Ambrose didn't deserve one. Ambrose took matters into his own hands as he attacked Barrett, zip tied his hands and forced Barrett to sign a contract, granting Ambrose an Intercontinental Championship Match. Will Barrett deliver the bad news to Ambrose and retain the Intercontinental Championship? Or will the WWE's resident "lunatic" leave as the champ?

- "WWE World Tag Team Championship Match": The Usos (c) vs. Tyson Kidd and Cesaro: The newly formed team of Kidd and Cesaro have been rising up the tag team ladder in the tag team division. The Usos, still a strong tag team, have granted the new team a shot at the gold, tonight. Can Kidd and his wife, Nattie Neidhart, get along long enough for Kidd and Cesaro to win the titles? Or will The Usos take down the new tag team and continue to reign on top of the Tag Team Division?

- "Six Man Tag Match": Seth Rollins, Kane, and Big Show vs. Dolph Ziggler, Erick Rowan, and Ryback: This feud has been brewing since Survivor Series, when Ryback, Ziggler and Rowan were apart of Team Cena. The trio helped get rid of The Authority but then were fired by The Authority when they returned to power a month later. With their jobs back now, thanks to John Cena and Sting, the trio look to continue their war with The Authority and try to bring them down once and for all. Seth Rollins is still the self proclaimed future of the WWE and Big Show and Kane have been having issues within The Authority. Will The Authority stay strong as a unit or will Ziggler, Ryback and Rowan put another chink in the Authority armor?

- Stardust vs. Goldust: The Rhodes Brothers, former WWE World Tag Team Champions, go one on one at Fast Lane. The bizarre brothers began having a falling out the past few weeks, as it appeared that Stardust was growing tired of his brother, Goldust. Hall of Famer, Dusty Rhodes, and father of the dust brothers thought to have talked some sense into his kids and put them back on the right track. Stardust however would turn on Goldust and considered his family dead, with Stardust being the only remaining member. Which brother will come out victorious? 

- Fast Lane Preshow: MizTv with Paul Heyman as Miz's guest. Paul Heyman looks to address the fans about Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan, Brock Lesnar and the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match at Wrestlemania 31.

*** My Predictions ***
- After Royal Rumble last month, my current record is 4-2. Let's see how I do this month.

- John Cena def. Rusev
- Roman Reigns def. Daniel Bryan
- Nikki Bella def. Paige
- Bad News Barrett def. Ambrose
- The Usos def. Kidd/Cesaro
- Stardust def. Goldust
- The Authority def. Ziggler/Ryback/Rowan
