Normally, for smaller PPVs, there is one match on the Kickoff Show. However, for WWE’s Fastlane, there will be two. Previously announced was Andrade vs. Rey Mysterio. And the newest addition is Big E & Xavier Woods vs Shinsuke Nakamura & Rusev, which leads me to believe that Kofi Kingston will somehow get involved in the main event. But that’s besides the point.
WWE fans across the globe are looking forward to Wrestlemania 35. However, before we can get to the sports entertainment giant’s biggest show of the year, we have to make a pit stop at Fastlane.
Traditionally, Fastlane has been the truck stop diner of WWE PPVs. Yes, it’s food, but just barely. Because this PPV is a lead in to the biggest WWE event of the year, there is usually very little build to the matches and no big surprises because, well, you can’t mess with Wrestlemania storylines. However, with all that being said, this is actually turning out to be a pretty solid card so far.
Fastlane comes to PPV and the WWE Network on Sunday, March 10. The show will start at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET / 12 AM GMT (March 11) with a Kickoff Show starting one hour prior. As of this writing, there are nine matches on the card, including one Kickoff Show match.
WWE’s Monday night program is expected to add a few matches, and many people are hoping that one of them involves recently returned Roman Reigns. There has been speculation that he could be reforming with his former Shield teammates, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, for a 3-on-3 match at the show. However, with Ambrose’s story line, it seems a bit unlikely, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
Below you’ll find all the matches for the Fastlane PPV, and we’ll keep them updated as more get booked. While it’s doubtful we’ll see a Universal Championship or the Raw Women’s Championship match, there is a good chance that the Raw Tag Team and Cruiserweight titles will be defended on the show.
Make sure to come back to GameSpot on Sunday, March 10 for live coverage and a review of the show.
