WWE Fastlane Preview #WWE #FastLane

By Brandon Albright, @B_Rock1978

Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE, brings you the pay per view preview edition for this Sunday's WWE Fastlane event. WWE Fastlane takes place right in Triple Threat CLE's backyard, in Cleveland, Ohio, live at Quicken Loans Arena.

As always if you can't catch the event live or on WWE Network, follow us @TripleThreatCLE on Twitter and I'll be providing the recap of the show on Monday afternoon.

- "Triple Threat Match, Winner Meets Triple H At Wrestlemania 32 For The WWE World Heavyweight Championship": Roman Reigns vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Brock Lesnar: The Authority successfully screwed Roman Reigns out of his WWE World Heavyweight Championship at the Royal Rumble, as Triple H returned and made sure Reigns was eliminated from the match. Triple H not only screwed Reigns, but walked out the new champion and claimed that "If you want to be champion in this company, than prove it". Dean Ambrose has been on a roll, defeating Kevin Owens in a Last Man Standing Match at Royal Rumble. The Authority included Ambrose in this match not only for his accomplishments, but also because he's Reigns' best friend. Are The Authority looking to continue to rip Reigns' life apart by making him fight with his best friend? It looks that way. Then there is "The Beast" Brock Lesnar. Lesnar and his manager Paul Heyman looked to shoehorn their way right into a main event title match at Wrestlemania 32, back before the Royal Rumble. The Authority, however, had no part of it and have forced Lesnar to get in line like the rest of the company and earn a title shot. Which one of the company's top three number one contender's will walk out of WWE Fastlane and meet Triple H at Wrestlemania 32 for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship?

- "WWE Intercontinental Championship Match": Kevin Owens (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler: Kevin Owens and Dolph Ziggler have had quite a feud throughout the month of January and February. Owens recently defeated Dean Ambrose and three other superstars, one being Dolph Ziggler, in a Fatal Five Way Match to win the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Ziggler immediately asked for a shot at Owens' newly won title, only to be turned down by the champ for a title shot. The Authority however went ahead and made the match for WWE Fastlane anyway, because it's what's best for business. Can Dolph Ziggler add another WWE Intercontinental Championship reign to his resume? Will Kevin Owens fend off the hungry Ziggler and retain his newly won title?

- "WWE United States Championship, 2 Out Of 3 Falls Match": Kalisto (c) vs. Alberto Del Rio IV: You are reading that right, it says IV after Alberto Del Rio. Why? Because this will be the fourth match these two have had the past month and a half with the WWE United States Championship on the line. Kalisto defeated Del Rio for the championship on a RAW episode in January. Three days later on Smackdown, Del Rio defeated Kalisto to win back the championship. Kalisto got another shot at the WWE United States Championship at the Royal Rumble and again defeated Del Rio to win back the championship. At WWE Fastlane we'll see Kalisto and Del Rio battle in round four with the WWE United States Championship on the line again, and this time their next go round will also be a classic "2 Out Of 3 Falls Match". Will Del Rio win back the championship or can Kalisto hold on and retain the title?

- "WWE Divas Championship Match": Charlotte (c) vs. Brie Bella: Charlotte has been on quite a tear as the current champ, lastly defeating Becky Lynch at the Royal Rumble. Charlotte's feud with Brie Bella began after Charlotte made some negative comments about Brie's career being nothing without her sister Nikki, who is suffering from a serious neck injury. Brie humiliated Charlotte on an episode of RAW and pinned the champ in a non title match. Charlotte now looks to get her revenge on Brie at WWE Fastlane, as Charlotte puts the WWE Divas Championship on the line. Will Charlotte defeat Brie or can Brie win one for her sister?

- AJ Styles vs. Chris Jericho: AJ Styles made his WWE debut last month in the 30 man Royal Rumble. Styles came up short on winning, but still made a nice impact on the company. Chris Jericho immediately took notice of Styles and demanded a shot at the former ROH and TNA World Heavyweight Champion, to properly welcome him to the WWE. Styles and Jericho faced off in two different matches on RAW and Smackdown and traded wins with each other. Styles challenged Jericho to one more match for the tie breaker at WWE Fastlane, in which Jericho happily accepted.

- "Six Man Tag Team Match": The Wyatt Family vs. Big Show, Ryback and Kane: The Wyatt Family have sent a warning to the WWE and to the fans that there is a Apocalypse coming and The Wyatts are leading it. Big Show, Ryback and Kane have been the recent targets of the sadistic family in the past few weeks. The unlikely team of good guys look to finally end the Wyatts' end of the world threats they have unleashed on the WWE.

- Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch vs. Naomi and Tamina: Sasha Banks started this feud after ending her relationship with Naomi and Tamina and leaving Team BAD. At first Naomi and Tamina were fine with Sasha wanting to move on to bigger things, but then they showed their true colors and attacked Sasha. Becky Lynch, who had issues with Team BAD in the past, made the save and helped Sasha. Becky and Sasha agreed that they didn't need each other's help in the fight with Team BAD, however, agreed to team up anyway and face Naomi and Tamina at WWE Fastlane.

- The Cutting Edge Peep Show With Edge and Christian: Special Guests, The New Day: One of the most charismatic tag teams in WWE history, Edge and Christian, return to the WWE to host their talk show The Cutting Edge Peep Show. Team E & C welcome the WWE World Tag Team Champions, The New Day, as their very special guests. With Edge and Christian's hilarity along with The New Day's goofiness, The Cutting Edge Peep Show is looking like comedy gold waiting to happen.
