  • Styles will face Shinsuke Nakamura in a Wrestle Mania dream match if he retains his title on Sunday night

Both Raw and SmackDown rosters will be featured. I'll save my analysis of that for another column.

With John Cena and numerous other challengers out of the WWE Championship picture, reigning title-holder AJ Styles only has one thought on his mind when he faces this year's Royal Rumble victor Shinsuke Nakamura: He's entering Wrestlemania as champ, and leaving with the belt around his waist. Monday Night Raw and 205 Live are already in full swing, but SmackDown Live will feature fallout from Fastlane and direction towards WrestleMania.

It looks like John Cena vs.

It's a clear band-aid boost to revive falling numbers, but the SmackDown creative team only has themselves to blame for it. As the battle wore on, Ziggler was dispatched an Attitude Adjustment from Cena and Styles took out Kevin Owen with a Phenomenal Forearm. Things fired back up after Zayn hit Owens with the Helluva Kick in this week's episode, but I'm not sure how they're going to follow up on it-if they will follow it up at all. Nakamura won with a Kinshasa in a well-paced match, but it's time to move Rusev up the card after WrestleMania.

The blue brand packed in four matches during their two-hour slot on Sky Sports Action, including a particularly hard-hitting encounter between Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura. Even though a lot of the matches were predictable. It's going to be a great match and the ideal way for both men to go down with their heads held high. I wanted to know what he thought, if he was okay with it, because that's important to me that, 'I'm not better than you.

Before his match against the Roman Reigns, The Undertaker held an unmatched WrestleMania record of 23 winds and one loss. However, the match is interrupted by "The Bludgeon Brothers (Eric Rowan and Luke Harper)' and it results in a 'No Contest".

Their time in the ring this week was brief, with Asuka only dropping one line, but just seeing the two share a ring is enough to get me excited for their match.




The show opened with a gruelling match between Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura. Today, they're an unstoppable force capable of taking out the WWE's five-best tag team specialists.

Interestingly, I think Flair retains in order to take on Asuka for the title at WrestleMania.

Women's Championship: Charlotte Flair (c) vs.

After the lengthy history of bad blood between the Usos and New Day, teaming Big E and Jimmy Uso sounds like an impossibility but it worked.

Although it brought an unbelievable match to an abrupt end, The Bludgeon Brothers making their mark in the tag team division was one of the best things to happen during Fastlane. Or everyone else, really.

First, Shane McMahon ruined the main event for Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn.
