WWE Fastlane 2018 Results/Review; WrestleMania 34 Matches Now Set

John Cena WWE

There was nothing bad to be found in this entire show and many key WrestleMania developments took place. I'll save my analysis of that for another column. The biggest controversy however was to do with SmackDown Live Commissioner Shane McMahon, who stopped both Owens and Zayn winning the belt themselves. In a fast-paced match, John Cena started with a bang delivering four Attitude Adjustments on Sami Zayn, Owens, Baron Corbin and Dolph Ziggler before Styles and Cena went to blows.

It's a clear band-aid boost to revive falling numbers, but the SmackDown creative team only has themselves to blame for it. As much as I would like to say yes I do actually think we will see Cena win after several false finishes unless The Undertaker shows up. That's like nearly half the Smackdown Live! roster. Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Rusev is a throwaway match meant to keep the Royal Rumble victor in action, and was only decided up on after a quick two-week build. Becky Lynch and Naomi vs. Natalya and Carmella was only created in this week's episode.

The story of the night is John Cena being in the multi-man main event match for AJ Styles' WWE Championship (and feeling like a big ol' brat, to be honest).

Orton performed an RKO on Bobby Roode to win his first-ever United States Championship.

There's also the matter of the United States Championship, which also seems to be headed toward a Triple Threat featuring Bobby Roode, Randy Orton and Jinder Mahal, especially following the events at Fastlane. The heels picked up the win when Carmella hit a superkick on Becky Lynch. With Rusev dazed in the center of the ring, Nakamura hits him with the running Kinshasa knee strike to pick up the win and to build momentum towards his WrestleMania debut. It is Rusev who began the duel and tried to pin Nakamura unsuccessfully, early in the match. I wasn't even expecting this bout to be all that exciting, and it wasn't really, though the Columbus crowd was really generous (good for them!).

PSG Chief To Hold Crunch Talks With Neymar In Brazil
Midfielder Ivan Rakitic says that he would be happy to see Neymar make a return to Barcelona at some stage in the future. There are also reports that Neymar's father, who acts as his agent, has held talks with Real Madrid .

Flair performed an outstanding moonsault on her opponent during the match.

This fills out not just the SmacDown Women's Championship portion of the WrestleMania crossword puzzle, but also RAW's-we can bank on Alexa Bliss vs. Nia Jax.

That being said too - and if the Usos vs.

Just as it looked like we were settling in for another New Day/Usos classic, the Bludgeon Brothers interrupted with oversize mallets and an ax to grind. Or everyone else, really.

Basically, the stakes for the entire night are "Will they stick with the match everyone wants or ruin everything for no reason?" Ruby Riott is a solid in-ring performer and she really proved herself to be able to compete among the best at Fastlane.
