The last Smackdown-only pay-per-view takes place in Columbus, Ohio at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday: WWE Fastlane.

This show will serve as the WWE’s final attempt to get its championships on the correct wrestlers and set up storylines before the organization’s Super Bowl, WrestleMania.


As stated in last month’s Elimination Chamber preview, lines move drastically with just a little bit of money on a wrestler, so be prepared to shop and get the best number possible.

WWE Championship

A.J. Styles (c) vs. John Cena vs. Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn vs. Baron Corbin vs. Dolph Ziggler

Fastlane is yet another pay-per-view with a main event that seems to include half the WWE roster. (OK, six competitors, but still.) The obvious choice for last month’s Elimination Chamber was Roman Reigns because of the head-to-head scripted with Brock Lesnar. The “dream match” that has been the talk of Smackdown for almost a year is Shinsuke Nakamura vs. A.J. Styles at WrestleMania for the WWE Championship. Even with a huge number of participants in this “Fatal 6 Way,” the WWE knows Styles-Nakamura will be a global event and its biggest money maker. Is there a path for any other wrestler to contend?
