WWE Fastlane 2018 Official Predictions

WWE Fastlane is the official final stop on the road to WrestleMania. I wrote how I would book the show here  Now, for my formal predictions 

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Rusev

Shinsuke Nakamura and Rusev are on a collision course. Is this a warm up match or a sudden stop for Shinsuke? That’s the question. My prediction, Sunday will be Nakamura Day! 

Winner: Shinsuke 

Naomi and Becky Lynch vs. Natalya and Carmella 

Since this Summer, we have seen Naomi and Natalya go at it      . While there is not a lot on the line, a win for Naomi and Becky Lynch could position them to be line for a title shot if at WrestleMania if Asuka does not pick Charlotte. A win for Natalya could do the same. After all, she has never won the title at WrestleMania. Shinsuke? Carmella has the briefcase so she is always in a good position. Considering Naomi laid the challenge, I’m predicting Natalya and Carmella will steal a win. 

Winners: Natalya and Carmella 

United States Championship Match
Bobby Roode (C) vs. Randy Orton

Personally, this is a match I have been waiting for nearly ten years to see. I did think it would take place at WrestleMania though. I am predicting this to end in a disqualification due to interference from Jinder Mahal, setting up a triple threat match at WrestleMania. 

Winner: No Contest

WWE Smackdown Live Women's Championship
Charlotte Flair vs. Ruby Riott

There is no way Charlotte is losing to Ruby Riott the month before WrestleMania... enough said

Winner: Charlotte Flair 

WWE Smackdown Live Tag Team Championship
The Usos (C) vs. The New Day 

If you would have told me last mont that these teams would meet up at Fastlane, I would have been disappointed. But what’s the saying, trust the process. Let the writers write. With one promo, I am interested in this match. If that wasn’t enough, The Bludgeon Brothers coming out to make things interesting. I believe the Usos will finally get on the main card at WrestleMania and do so by successfully defending their tag titles. 

Winners: The Usos

Six-Pack Challenge for the WWE Championship
Baron Carbon vs Kevin Owens vs AJ Styles (C) vs John Cena vs Sami Zayn vs Dolph Ziggler

This Six-Pack challenge is interesting... and everything AJ Styles needs before headling WrestleMania for the first time. There are so many stories to be told. One, I believe we get Sami Zayn vs Kevin Owens Match out if this. Two, going way out to left field, I believe we get John Cena vs Dolph Ziggler. Why not, Ziggler was in love with Cena’s fiancée Nikki Bella. And with Ziggler hungry for a big spot and Cena hungry for a WrestleMania match, it’s the perfect fit. This leaves AJ Styles with a clean slate to face Nakamura at WrestleMania. 

Winner: AJ Styles 

Current Record: 8-3
